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]
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.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This mirror is unfortunately incomplete (and very slightly outdated), as /CrazyTalk/ was not included when I scraped the site (it was far too large to scrape given the site's extremely poor performance, my wish to avoid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 http://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.

Off-Label Uses of Lexapro
The entire panic-anxiety spectrum, including: Social anxiety disorder (SAnD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Also bipolar depression.
When & If Lexapro Will Work
Lexapro’s Usual Onset of Action (when it starts working)
Lexapro can start working within one week. You should still give it at least three weeks. Unless the side effects hit hard and fast.
Likelihood of Working
If you’ve never taken an antidepressant before, and for all you and your doctor know serotonin is a big part of your problem, the odds are pretty damn good that Lexapro will help for MDD. Although the odds of Lexapro working may not be statistically much better than Celexa (citalopram), they both have better chances of working for MDD than all the other SSRIs, and most other antidepressants. I.e. around a 60–75% chance of response (they’ll do something positive) and 50–70% chance of remission (kiss that MDD goodbye, as long as you’re taking your meds).
The odds are similar for GAD.
Taking and Discontinuing
How to Take Lexapro
Per the Lexapro Full US PI sheet: 10 mg once a day , for adults and adolescents with MDD , adults with GAD , and just about anything else. That’s it.
Start at 5mg a day for anything in the Anxiety or Depression spectra. Increase by 2.5 to 5mg a day after at least a week, and only if needed.
How to Stop Taking Lexapro (discontinuation / withdrawal)
Decrease your dosage by 5mg every week. So if you’re taking 10mg a day, take 5mg for a week, then you can stop. 2.5mg a day if you really need to. If you experience severe SSRI discontinuation syndrome that’s not going away, talk to your doctor about a prescription for flouxetine or the oral solution for a slow tapering off.
