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. [absolutely none whatsoever, as the original work no longer exists anywhere else (outside of whatever bits and pieces archive.org managed to capture) - the original site was intermittantly completely unavailable for a extended period of time before its SSL certificate expired (and was never renewed), and eventually the site went offline for good, then finally the DNS records were removed at some point prior to May 2018, so at this point it is well beyond the 'dead and rotting' stage]
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.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. [belated clarification: with specific regards to the adblock drama I was referring to Poore at one point replacing his entire site with a single page complaining about the amount of revenue lost to users with ad blocking active, which is something that I took extreme exception to because this affected ALL visitors to the site regardless of if or if not they were actually using ad blocking]
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.
Note (Oct 9 2018): Infrequent additional updates regarding the status of this site will be posted on https://info.crazymeds.net

Since October 2013 Crazymeds has not been making enough money to support itself, let alone me.  The Google search algorithm hates me now, and the medication pages no longer show up in the top 7 results.  Hell, most of them don't even show up in the top ten any more[^##search^].  With the forum's activity, search engine traffic being what it is, increased use of ad blocking software, and most drug companies not liking my "unpredictable"
[^##really^] stance, and thus not buying ads like they used to, we're at the equivalent of coming in fourth at the Olympics: we need a ''lot more'' traffic to get the revenue to stay on the air[^##pbs^], yet the site doesn't get the traffic it needs to make enough money to pay for the minimum amount of domain hosting horsepower required to handle the traffic it ''does'' get.  So it's a fundraiser, a one-time thing (I hope) to raise enough money to pay the rent for another year on a server robust enough to handle the traffic we get.  As of right now (04 March, 2014) we've raised close to 70% of what we need to keep Crazymeds with the Crazy Talk forum on the air.

[^##search I really think someone at Google is intentionally fucking with me.  The Effexor and Celexa pages were completely removed from the search results for close to a year.  Shortly after a page makes it back to where it belongs (position 4 - 7 in the results) it drops down to 9 or lower.  Then the weirdest thing of all happened: If you search for Crazy Meds Forum using the Chrome browser you get redirected to that fucking url 4 shit malware site.  Yet the code in the forum software that allowed those assholes to exploit a security loophole NO LONGER EXISTS ANYWHERE ON THIS SITE!  It should not be possible for that redirect to happen, but it does.  When you use Chrome to search for the forum with Google.

Everyone needs some help once in awhile, especially when you're mentally interesting.  I hate asking for help, especially when it's for something I'm not good at.

!!!Cash is King
The Beg Button is back.  Since October 2013 Crazymeds has not been making enough money to support itself, let alone me.  As of right now (04 March, 2014) we've raised close to 70% of what we need to keep Crazymeds with the Crazy Talk forum on the air.

I really don't want to inundate Crazymeds with ads from sources other than Google's AdSense and shitty [[Merch/Merchandise|Crazymeds-related merchandise]].  The way things are going I might be forced to.  I'm plummeting in the search results, sometimes meds completely vanish, but when you make a living off of the ad revenue from your site, not being in the top ten results is the equivalent of not being in the search results at all.



!!!Learn to Share
I ''really'' need you to share what I've written.  At the top of each page there are buttons to share or like it via Facebook, Google plus, and every other social media/bookmarking/whatever service there is via [[http://addthis.com/|AddThis]].  It would really, ''really'' help if you flag every page you've found helpful and/or entertaining with a G+ and/or a Facebook share.  I realize there is a hell of a lot of stigma attached to having brain cooties, and a share on Google+ and Facebook, unlike those in AA, is fairly public, whereas a like is much less so.  Which is why I have both options available.

!!!!How to be Popular
The Internet, alas, is like high school.  Popularity is everything.  Well-liked pages tend to do better in the search rankings.  The better it does in the search, more people will visit it.  Likes, however, are merely statistics. shares are ''real'' links.  Shares bring more people to site than likes do.  Along the same lines links from blogs and message boards/fora.  To continue the high school analogy, a share is similar to being liked by someone who is popular.  The more non-spammy links[^##linkfarm^] and traffic from them, the further up the search engine results we get, and the less freaked out I get about not being able to afford health insurance and having to pay for my meds myself because the only expensive, high-risk plan that will take me won't cover them, which would force me to shut down the site because it makes too much money to qualify me for free meds (or anything else), but nowhere near what Medicare is worth[^##medicare^].  As I make my living[^##day^] off of this site's [[Sources/Money|ad revenue]], and more and more people are getting ad-blocking software installed[^##block^], I need to keep getting more and more people to see more and more pages just to keep up.  Back on [[Sources/Stats|the statistics page]] I go into far too much detail about search page rankings and so forth.  The higher up Crazymeds is in the search results, the more people who land on it from search engines.  Search engine traffic usually sends people to the wiki where they are more likely to click on ads[^##ctr^], and the ads usually pay more[^##cpc^].


!!!Do You ''Really'' Like Me?
I want you to be {-part of my circle jerk-} my friend.  If you're using a high-end mobile device or a laptop you'll see this near the bottom of every page[^##temp^]:
[^##temp Including the one near here, as it's part of a template.  Sorry about the redundancy.^]

[^##medicare About $1,300 a month.  Social Security considers $1,050 a month to be enough to live off of.  Which is a vast improvement over the $580 a month they thought you could live off of in 2004.^]
[^##block In 2004 - 2006 1.5% - 2.0% of the ads displayed were clicked on.  From 2007 through March 2012 it was slightly over 1%.  Today it's {-just under -0.5%-} make that barely over 0.4%. ^]
[^##ctr 1 person in 150 who reads the wiki clicks on an ad vs. 1 person in 300 who reads the forum. ^]
[^##cpc You're just going to have to take my word on this.  I can't give you any details. ^]

Now we're in familiar, if head-bangingly frustrating territory.  Sites that are already popular, like Wikipedia, Drugs.com, WebMD, RxList, are going to rate higher because they get more traffic.  Recent graduates, and those who can remember what it was like, should recognize this as: "How can you get a job without experience, and how can you get experience without a job?"  The answer to that is becoming {-someone's unpaid lackey-} {-the corporate equivalent of a slave-} an intern and being paid in experience and maybe even college credits.  On teh interwebs you can buy ads, which I may have to do, although with my budget I doubt their efficacy.  Hence my reliance on word-of-email, which has served me well for nine years, but now may not be enough.  What really gets something happening is reaching some tipping point with crowds[^##coast^] where everyone rushes to one site, making it one of, if not ''the'' place to go for information on some topic.  The flipside of crowdsourcing is [[http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/24518|the madness of crowds]].

[^##coast Which I may have had already in 2006.  While I've been building steadily upon that surge of popularity, and even recovered from the disasters in 2007, this latest adjustment in what is probably no more that normal dip in the cyclical nature of any site's traffic and income, has come at a ''very bad'' time. ^]

[^##search I really think someone at Google is intentionally fucking with me.  The Effexor and Celexa pages were completely removed from the search results for close to a year.  Shortly after a page makes it back to where it belongs (position 4 - 7 in the results) it drops down to 9 or lower.  Then the weirdest thing of all happened: If you search for Crazy Meds Forum using the Chrome browser you get redirected to that fucking url 4 shit malware site.  Yet the code in the forum software that allowed those assholes to exploit a security loophole NO LONGER EXISTS ANYWHERE ON THIS SITE!  It should not be possible for that redirect to happen, but it does.  When you use Chrome to search for the forum with Google.^]

!!!!How to be Popular
The Internet, alas, is like high school.  Popularity is everything.  Well-liked pages tend to do better in the search rankings.  The better it does in the search, more people will visit it.  Likes, however, are merely statistics. shares are ''real'' links.  Shares bring more people to site than likes do.  Along the same lines links from blogs and message boards/fora.  To continue the high school analogy, a share is similar to being liked by someone who is popular.  The more non-spammy links[^##linkfarm^] and traffic from them, the further up the search engine results we get.  I also need actual links, preferably to whatever specific page on the drug wiki[^##wikilinks^] that was the most helpful and/or amusing to you.

[^##wikilinks As much as I'd like to, I can't go into any details as to why.  Let's just say that the wiki makes more money than, and essentially subsidizes the forum.^]

!!!Do You ''Really'' Like Me?
I want you to be {-part of my circle jerk-} my friend.  If you're using a real computer, high-end mobile device or a laptop you'll see this near the bottom of every page[^##temp^]:
[^##temp Including the one near here, as it's part of a template.  Sorry about the redundancy.^]

(:AuthorPlus:)

If you're on a real computer, a large laptop, or have really good eyesight and display the right sidebar with everything in a tiny font, you also get to see me over there --> 

If you have a {-DoublePlusGoogle-} Google+ account, please add me to one of your circles.  I'll add you to mine.  I don't post all that much.

We also have a [[http://www.facebook.com/BrandCrazyMeds|Facebook page]] (which is not the same as [[https://www.facebook.com/groups/339690645979/|the group]]) you can like:

Liking us via our Facebook page or following us on Google+ will get you notifications of all sorts of exciting things, like new content, impending forum software upgrades, and status reports when the site is off the air for some reason.

[^##day Really, this is my day job.^]
[^##linkfarm Please don't post links to Crazymeds where they don't belong.  It's one thing if it's in reply to a question someone asks about meds or conditions we cover in an off-topic thread on a site about exotic fish, it's something else entirely if someone goes around randomly posting links to this place on sites that have nothing to do with neurological or psychiatric conditions and treatments just because they think everyone should know about us.  I already have enough trouble with ISPs sending Crazymeds e-mail - along with e-mail from a personal account that has nothing to do with Crazymeds - to the spam bucket because Crazymeds is used in bogus, redirecting links.  As is my name every now and then.  My name and the site name are used in SEO spam, in spoofed e-mail addresses, and so forth.^]

Now we're in familiar, if head-bangingly frustrating territory.  Sites that are already popular, like Wikipedia, Drugs.com, WebMD, RxList, are going to rate higher because they get more traffic.  Recent graduates, and those who can remember what it was like, should recognize this as: "How can you get a job without experience, and how can you get experience without a job?"  The answer to that is becoming {-someone's unpaid lackey-} {-the corporate equivalent of a slave-} an intern and being paid in experience and maybe even college credits.  On teh interwebs you can buy ads, which I may have to do, although with my budget I doubt their efficacy.  Hence my reliance on word-of-email, which has served me well for nine years, but now may not be enough.  What really gets something happening is reaching some tipping point with crowds[^##coast^] where everyone rushes to one site, making it one of, if not ''the'' place to go for information on some topic.  The flipside of crowdsourcing is [[http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/24518|the madness of crowds]].

[^##coast Which I may have had already in 2006.  While I've been building steadily upon that surge of popularity, and even recovered from the disasters in 2007, this latest adjustment in what is probably no more that normal dip in the cyclical nature of any site's traffic and income, has come at a ''very bad'' time. ^]

To make life easier for those who click on the beg button...

!!!!Thanks!
Thanks for your contribution.  It won't be wasted on anything frivolous like food, meds, or health insurance.  At this point all donations are budgeted to pay for the domain server.

!!!!Don't Worry About It
If you hit the beg button by accident, or realized it was either hypomania or the overlords of the 12 Zegnatronic Galaxies were just guilting you into donating, it's OK.  I know money is tight.

The Beg Button is back.  Since October 2013 Crazymeds has not been making enough money to support itself, let alone me.  As of right now (04 March, 2014) we've raised close to 70% of what we need to keep Crazymeds with
the Crazy Talk forum on the air.

I really don't want
to inundate Crazymeds with ads from sources other than Google's AdSense and shitty [[Merch/Merchandise|Crazymeds-related merchandise]]The way things are going I might be forced to.  I'm plummeting in the search results, sometimes meds completely vanish, but when you make a living off of the ad revenue from your site, not being in the top ten results is the equivalent of not being in the search results at all.

!!!How Do I Rate?
In addition to rating meds you can now rate the articles about the meds.  I ''plan'' on making more pages ratable[^##docs^], as this page is, so I can avoid an abstract discussion[^##rateme^].
[^##docs Much in the same way that I plan on keeping the "How to Read our Drug Guides" pages up-to-date with our ever-changing formats. ^]
[^##rateme Feel free to rate this page if you like. ^]

Please answer honestly.  One rating per customer per page.  Ratings are anonymous.

* They must be at least five years old.
* They must be prescribed
to treat a psychiatric or neurological condition.
** including off-label prescriptions like propranolol and verapamil
** or they were prescribed to treat the side effects of a crazy med, like cogentin
* They '''cannot be''' a benzodiazepine

I really don't want to inundate Crazy Meds with ads from sources other than Google's AdSense.  The way things are going I might be forced to.  I'm plummeting in the search results, sometimes meds completely vanish, but when you make a living off of the ad revenue from your site, not being in the top ten results is the equivalent of not being in the search results at all.

're some {-Commie Owenite who thinks ''everything'' should be free-} idealist tired of seeing advertisements wherever you look and would like to support Crazy Meds without {-feeding our nascent self-aware Internet Overlord-} {-filling the coffers of this century's robber barons-}  {-supporting the new Microsoft-} contributing to Google, you can always buy [[http://www.cafepress.com/crazymeds/6451993|a t-shirt or two]], [[http://www.cafepress.com/crazymeds/10508309|some mugs]] or [[http://www.cafepress.com/crazymeds|other crappy merchandise]], or [[http://astore.amazon.com/crazymedsorg-20|some of the books we use]].[^##amazon^]  Hell, I'll even take the filthy lucre that is the source of all of Humanity's problems; or cash money as they call it where I grew up.  Send cash, check, money order, bearer bonds, used books, DVDs, CDs (anything I don't want I can always exchange, sell or donate), or relatively recent medical journals[^##journal^] to:

!!!Are You Holding?
You can also send me your drugs.  Wait. What?  I'm not asking for medications I can't afford[^##free^].  What I need are meds I don't have for t-shirt and mug designs along the lines of the [[http://www.cafepress.com/crazymeds/10635695|I <3 (insert your favorite med) mugs]] and [[http://www.cafepress.com/crazymeds/6524853|The Depakote Made Me Eat It shirts]].  I want to spell out the names of drugs with the drugs themselves. I also plan on including pictures of meds on the pages about them, so various sizes and generics will be useful. If I get duplicates it's OK for me to flush them, as I have a septic system.

Here are the qualifications necessary for any meds to send me:
* They must be prescription-only medications.
* They must be at least five years old.
* They must be prescribed to treat a psychiatric or neurological condition.
** including off-label prescriptions like propranolol and verapamil
** or they were prescribed to treat the side effects of a crazy med, like cogentin
* They '''cannot be''' a benzodiazepine, a stimulant, a narcotic, or a hypnotic (Ambien, Lunesta, Sonata) no matter how old.  Those will get flushed immediately, so don't waste your money sending them.

Now we're in familiar, if head-bangingly frustrating territory.  Sites that are already popular, like Wikipedia, Drugs.com, WebMD, RxList, are going to rate higher because they get more traffic.  Recent graduates, and those who can remember what it was like, should recognize this as: "How can you get a job without experience, and how can you get experience without a job?"  The answer to that is becoming {-someone's unpaid lackey-} {-the corporate equivalent of a slave-} an intern and being paid in experience and maybe even college credits.  On teh interwebs you can buy ads, which I may have to do, although with my budget I doubt their efficacy.  Hence my reliance on word-of-email, which has served me well for nine years, but now may not be enough.  What really gets something happening is reaching some tipping point with crowds[^##coast^] where everyone rushes to one site, making it one of, if not ''the'' place to go for information on some topic.  The flipside of crowdsourcing is [[http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/24518|the madness of crowds]].

[^##coast Which I may have had already in 2006.  While I've been building steadily upon that surge of popularity, and even recovered from the disasters in 2007, this latest adjustment in what is probably no more that normal dip in the cyclical nature of any site's traffic and income, has come at a ''very bad'' time. ^]
