Other places can sell you shirts, etc. with the same or similar phrases on them, and their stuff probably looks much nicer, but how many of them know what it’s like to actually be batshit crazy? They wouldn’t know crazy if they found Charlie Manson eating Froot Loops outside their front door, circling words on the box with a well-chewed pencil stub, and muttering something about “the Black Sun rising.” I doubt most of them could name, let alone have taken, one of the meds used in my designs.
Then there are the designs that incorporate drugs. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations. Most products featuring ‘medications’ are usually made with supplements or over-the-counter drugs like aspirin. Straitjacket T-shirts products are made with 100% prescription-only medications that comprised the psychiatric / neurological cocktails that I am taking now or have taken (or someone I lived with has taken) at one time or another during our 17-year-long (to date)1 quest for sanity and seizure control. Some worked, most, like the ill-conceived and badly-executed attempt at getting a 3-D effect, didn’t. Want to know more about the quality ingredients that go into our shitty products? Read all about the pills of Straitjacket T-Shirts.
I may not have seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, but I have had a time-out from polite society in the locked ward of a psych hospital. I bought 50 acres of bushland in Australia to keep a shaky marriage together. I thought there were people living in my bathroom plotting to kill me; I heard them whispering to each other when the radio was off and saw fires they lit in the corners of rooms. I thought I could find the solution to my problems by buying every kitchen gadget I saw advertised on TV. I see the ghost of my dead cat (she died in 2013) sitting around my house and outside wanting to be let in. I AM batshit crazy and I AM medicated for everyone’s protection so you can get the lousy t-shirt, mug, or whatever to express your own inner turmoil to strangers using my meds.
Don’t worry about actually buying one. Windows shop and share the designs you’d like to buy or find worthy of ridicule. What else are you doing now? Working? Sure you are.

The books we use for our research are expensive and their audience is medical professionals and students. So unless you or a family member are a professional patient, or you’re a health care professional, you’re going to school to become a health care professional, or, like me, you research and write about medical issues for a living, the vast majority of books at our store will be a severe waste of money and potential exacerbation of hypochondria or pharmacophobia.

1 The oldest meds used date back to 1996/97, when Mouse first saw a shrink. The oldest meds of mine are from 1998/99. My quest for sanity and seizure control actually began in 1986 when I was first diagnosed as bipolar - although symptoms first showed up long before then - was treated with lithium, and had my epilepsy unmasked thanks to a single dose of lithium triggering the first big-ass clonic seizure I'd had with anyone to witness it. It may have been the first one I'd had since I was a kid. Since they rarely happen when I'm awake I had no idea they were happening at all until I learned to recognize the evidence of having had one. In any event, that experience put me off meds and doctors for quite some time. I didn't seek treatment for any form of brain cooties again until 1991 or '92, and between then and 2002 did so only sporadically.

You cannot reproduce this page or any other material on this site outside of the boundaries of fair use copying without the express permission of the copyright holder. That’s usually me, so just ask first. That means if want to print out a few pages to take to your doctor, therapist, counselor, support group, non-understanding family members or something like that - then that’s OK to just do. Go for it! Please. As long as you include this copyright notice and something along the lines of following disclaimer, I’m usually cool with it.
All rights reserved. No warranty is expressed or implied in this information. Consult one or more doctors and/or pharmacists before taking, or changing how you take any neurological and/or psychiatric medication. Your mileage may vary. What happened to us won’t necessarily happen to you. If you still have questions about a medication or condition that were not answered on any of the pages you read, please ask them on Crazy Talk: the Crazymeds Forum.
The information on Crazymeds pertains to and is intended for adults. While some information about children and adolescents is occasionally presented (e.g. US FDA approvals), pediatric-specific data such as dosages, side effects, off-label applications, etc. are rarely included in the articles on drugs or discussed on the forum. If you are looking for information regarding meds for children you’ll have to go somewhere else. Plus we are big pottymouths and talk about S-E-X a lot.
Know your sources!
Nobody on this site is a doctor, a therapist, or a pharmacist. We don’t portray them either here or on TV. Only doctors can diagnose and treat an illness. While it’s not as bad as it used to be, some doctors still get pissed off by patients who know too much about medications, so tread lightly when and where appropriate. Diagnosing yourself from a website is like defending yourself in court, you suddenly have a fool for a doctor. Don’t be a cyberchondriac, thinking you have every disease you see a website about, or that you’ll get every side effect from every medication1. Self-prescribing is as dangerous as buying meds from fraudulent online pharmacies that promise you medications without prescriptions.
All information on this site has been obtained from the medications’ product information / summary of product characteristic (PI/SPC) sheets and/or medication guides - which is all you get from sites like WebMD, RxList,
NAMBLA NAMI, etc., the sources that are referenced throughout the site, our personal experience and the experiences family, friends, and what people have reported on various reputable sites all over teh intergoogles. As such the information presented here is not intended as a substitute for real medical advice from your real doctor, just a compliment to it. You should never, ever, replace what a real doctor tells you with something from a website on the Internet. The farthest you should ever take it is getting a second opinion from another real doctor. Educate yourself - always read the PI/SPC sheet or medication guide/patient information leaflet (PIL) that comes with your medications and never ever throw them away. OK, you can throw away duplicate copies, but keep at least one, as that’s your proof of purchase of having taken a med in case a doctor doubts your medical history. Plus they take up less space than a bottle, although keeping one inside of a pill bottle is even better.
Crazymeds is not responsible for the content of sites we provide links to. We like them, or they’re paid advertisements, or they’re something else we think you should read to help you make an informed decision about a particular med. Sometimes they’re more than one of those things. But what’s on those sites is their business, not ours.
Crazymeds is optimized for ridiculously large screens and browsers that don’t block ads. I use Firefox and Chrome, running under Windows 72. On a computer that sits on top of my desk. With a 23 inch monitor. Hey, at least you can make the text larger or smaller by clicking on the + or - buttons in the upper right hand corner. If you have Java enabled. Like 99% of the websites on the planet, Crazymeds is hosted on domain running an open source operating system with a variety of open source applications, including the software used to display what you’ve been reading. As such Crazymeds is not responsible for whatever weird shit your browser does or does not do when you read this site3.

1 While there are plenty of books to help you with hypochondria, for some reason there’s not much in the way of websites. Then again, staying off of the Internet is a large part of curing/managing the disorder.
2 Remember kids, Microsloth operating systems are like TOS Star Trek movies with in that every other one sucks way, way more. With TOS Star Trek movies you don’t want to bother watching the odd-numbered ones. With Microsloth OS you don’t want to buy and install the even-numbered ones. Anyone who remembers ME and Vista knows what I mean.
3 Have I mentioned how open source operating systems for commercial applications is one of the dumbest ideas in the history of dumb ideas?* I don’t even need my big-ass rant any more. Heartbleed has made my case for me. And that’s just the one that got all the media attention. The very nature of an open source operating system makes security as much of an illusion as anonymity on teh Intergoogles. Before you flip out too much: the domain Crazymeds is hosted on uses a version of SSL that is not affected by the Heartbleed bug. That’s one of the many reasons why I pay a lot of money and keep this site on Lunarpages.
* Yes, I know I’m using open source browsers. I also test the site using the now-defunct IE and Safari browsers. Their popularity - and superiority - killed IE and Safari, so that’s why I rely on the open source browsers. It’s like brand vs. generic meds. Sometimes the generic is better than the brand.
