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The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.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

How’s Reception?

Here are a few sites to bookmark in case you’re unable to reach us here at crazymeds.net

If you can’t reach the forum and/or wiki and there is no notice about it on any of the above sites:

  • Is Crazymeds Down? If you can’t reach the site and I haven’t posted anything, check here.
  • If the above site says Crazymeds is up and running then…
    • There could be some kind of problem (such as Internet weather) between you and Crazymeds1.
    • The more technically inclined can go to your preferred TCP/IP tools site to ping, traceroute, etc.
  • Keep in mind that the domain itself could be up and running - along with all the TCP/IP parts of the OS - and the problem is with other parts of the OS, or something else that’s software-related.

As I’m not married to my computer, my phone isn’t smarter than I am, and sometimes I’ll avoid the entire fucking Internet for a week. Or more. So I may not be aware of a problem and I’ll need someone to contact me and let me know there’s a problem.2 Please check one of the above sites first. That’s why I have so many of them.3 The of the above pages are publicly readable, no account on any of those sites is required.

I ignore questions about medications on the above pages, so don’t post any there. That’s what the the Forum is for. The best you’ll get from me are directions to the appropriate page(s) on the wiki, forum topic, and/or the the Crazymeds Facebook Group if you need ((((((((((((HUGzzzzzzzzzzz))))))))))))))))).

I’m Pleased to Announce

In addition to all of the asocial media above used for site problems, the following are also used for announcements about new content, features, merchandise, site updates, news, etc.:

  • I no longer use the Batshit Crazy Blog for this sort of thing, so don’t check there for content updates, etc.
  • The ever-growing page of updates you wanted to avoid. You’re on this page for a reason right?
  • Site News Forum
  • Jerod Poore’s LinkedIn page
    • No, really. I’ve had a LinkedIn account since before I went batshit crazy4. I just started using it for posting Crazymeds-related announcements, etc.
  • Jerod Poore’s Tsu feed
    • You need to create a free account before you can read anything.
    • Like anyone has an account on Tsu.
  • Press Releases. I completely forgot I set up aboutus press releases.
    • So if I remember to do it, and how to navigate their fucking user-hostile interface, I’ll post updates.
    • In the form of parodies of the bullshit corporate press releases I come across while searching for actual information.
      • You know the type, using the latest jargon and blowing the accomplishments way the fuck out of proportion.
    • So they’ll most likely be for things like insignificant updates and news stories that barely mention the site.
      • The sort of thing that warrants, at most, an entry in an existing topic in the Site News Forum and, maybe, a tweet.

Once again: I ignore questions about medications on the above pages, so don’t post any there. That’s what the appropriate Forum sections are for.

How do I get past their anti-telepathic mindcontrol tinfoil hats? | About Crazymeds | What’s the latest gossip?

1 Ever hear the one about the Internet being able to automagically route around any communications roadblocks? Because it was developed to survive a nuclear war? Yeah, well, it used to be like that. Back in the 20th century, before most of TCP/IP was replaced by HTTP and OSI. I could really bore you with my involvement in one of the protocols that was competing with HTTP, because HTTP was just one of several HTML protocols developed in 1989-1994 for use over TCP/IP. I also preferred Beta over VHS. Guess which one was, and still is, used until a TV or video-based movie production company goes completely digital?

2 Not that there's much of a guarantee of reaching me that way either. I'll often leave my phone in my purse, or somewhere in the house out of earshot. And sometimes the battery will run out of juice.

3 And freaking SEO gaming, just like everyone else. I'm just honest enough to admit it.

4 Well, the most recent time I went utterly batshit crazy, in late 2001/early 2002. AKA the madness that has yet to end.

5 Significant being defined as however important I think something is at the time I'm finished with it. As I wrote, press releases may be for thoroughly insignificant news and/or changes.

6 Despite being a perfectionist, and how I used to write internal documentation at a ratio of 2:1, sometimes 3:1 in relationship to actual code, I suck shit when it comes to noting the changes I've made and flagging minor updates. Which means if the only I change I make is adding or removing a comma, it will show up.

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.
Very little information about visitors to this site is collected or saved. From time to time I look at search terms used and which pages they bring up in an effort to make the information I present more relevant. And the country of origin, just because I’m geeky like that. That’s about it. Depending on how you feel about Schrodinger, our privacy policy should either assuage or exacerbate your paranoia.
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.
No neurologists, psychiatrists, therapists or pharmacists were harmed in the production of this website. Use only as directed. Void where prohibited. Contains nuts. Certain restrictions may apply. All data are subject to availability. Not available on all mobile devices, in the 12 Galaxies Guiltied to a Zegnatronic Rocket Society, or in all dimensions of reality. Hail Xenu!

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.
