17 U.S. Code § 107 - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes [all mirrored content falls under this clause, any ads present are mirrored from the original site, mirrored content earns me no revenue whatsoever];
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work [this is a unique resource for the mentally ill, and preservation of it can be argued to be incredibly important];
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. [none, as the original work no longer exists outside of archive.org and this website - update: the original site is intermittantly completely unavailable and has a SSL certificate that expired months ago, so this still holds as most users will be unable to access it easily if at all (and now as of May 2018 the original site is completely offline and no longer even has any A records in its DNS)]
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

This domain is not controlled by Jerod Poore, and I will NOT continue redirecting traffic from this domain to crazymeds.us [as I formerly did] while Jerod continues with his immature temper tantrum over adblock or continues to fail to maintain his site, fucking over his entire community and countless visitors in the process.
This mirror is unfortunately incomplete (and very slightly outdated), as /CrazyTalk/ was not included when I scraped the site (it was far too large to scrape given the site's extremely poor performance, my wish to avoid worsening the poor performance further, and other factors). If you're looking for a replacement forum, I suggest visiting https://www.crazyboards.org/forums/. There are issues with many of the mirrored pages, I am working on identifying and fixing them, but I do not have the time to address every single issue at this moment (although by now the majority of these issues have been resolved). Dynamic content is obviously completely broken (this is beyond my control), and the loss of /CrazyTalk/ is quite bad given how much good user-generated info was on there, but you have Jerod to "thank" for that. Maybe I'll bring it back online at some point, but it wouldn't be the same as before. For now, I suggest visiting CrazyBoards instead.

When & If BuSpar Will Work

BuSpar’s Usual Onset of Action (when it starts working)

Because of the nonlinear pharmacokinetics, it’s hard to know when you should get an effect from BuSpar, but Bristol-Myers seems to think two to three days should be sufficient. Like most things that work on your serotonin, especially as this is likely to augment an antidepressant, I would make that two to three weeks to decide if BuSpar helping at all.

Likelihood of Working

BuSpar seems to be immensely variable in how it hits people — even studies showing its effectiveness noticed this. Like most meds, it’s all a matter of hitting the right neurotransmitters in the right ways. But since it’s low on the side effects and non-addictive, it’s worth a stop on the med-go-round if you’re experiencing SSRI poop-out or inadequate relief of anxiety disorders with an SSRI.

Taking and Discontinuing

How to Take BuSpar

The starting dose is usually 5 mg 3 times per day , for a total of 15 per day. With a half life of 3 hours, stepping up every two to three days is not unreasonable biologically — however, it’s insane from a common-sense point of view. Give BuSpar a week between dose step-ups at least, so you can see if it’s doing anything for you at the lower dose. Standard dosages of BuSpar in clinical trials are usually 20 to 30 mg per day; the maximum dosage of BuSpar is 60 mg per day.

How to Stop Taking BuSpar (discontinuation / withdrawal)

Given a half-live of two to three hours, stepping down by 5 mg at every day is reasonable. Though every other day would be safer. Unless it didn’t do anything at all, including no psychiatric effects, including stuff like making the anxiety or depression worse. In which case go for 10mg a day.
