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The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.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

trying to make sense of our crazy articles
Single-page Article Format >
Our Medication Articles Explained!
The nice thing about standards is that you have so many to choose from. - Andy Tanenbaum1
Like PI sheets our drug guides come in two formats: an old one marginally updated to fit the wiki software, and a new, “improved” model.
- Single-page Article Format. As of this writing most of the meds are written up this way.
- MultiPageMedicationArticle (longmed) Overview Essentially a briefer version of the above, with links to the following pages for more detail:
- Approved & Off-label Uses Including failed and dangerous ones, and when it’s a good or a bad idea to take the med.
- How Long & How Likely To Work, Comparisons with Other Meds Details on efficacy, including off-label uses, and comparisons with other meds for approved and off-label uses.
- How to Take and Discontinue As much detailed information as we can find, including tips for and symptoms of discontinuation.
- MultiPageMedicationArticle Pros & Cons, Interesting Stuff Your Doctor Didn’t Tell You
- MultiPageMedicationArticle’s Side Effects Including anything we can find on how to deal side effects.
- MultiPageMedicationArticle’s Blackbox and Other Warnings AKA the things to legitimately be paranoid about.
- MultiPageMedicationArticle Brand and Generic Availability All the names for a drug we can find, if and where it is available as a generic, any known problems with generic versions or preferred generics, how it is supplied (tablet, injection, etc.), shelf life, drug classes.
- longmed Pharmacokinetics & Noted Drug-Drug Interactions The stuff only pharmacology geeks care about.
- longmed Mechanism/Methods of Action/How it Works See above.
- Comments On those incredibly rare occasions where I didn’t go on for long enough on the overview page.
- Consumer Comments about MultiPageMedicationArticle where you get your chance to go on and on about a med.
- Allegedly Useful Links Mostly official sites, PI sheets from outside of the US, and consumer reviews.
The bulletpoint list above would serve a purpose if the multi-page med article template didn’t have it built-in, but you’ll see it on other articles throughout Crazymeds. That’s the index that makes the trail you see near the top right, and often near the bottom right, of the pages in large or related articles. Clicking there takes you from page to page. There will be a link to the index after the index page itself. Once you’re at the multi-page med article the index will be the same index page every med article uses.
