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. [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 (and now as of May 2018 the original site is completely offline and no longer even has any A records in its DNS)]
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.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This mirror is unfortunately incomplete (and very slightly outdated), as /CrazyTalk/ was not included when I scraped the site (it was far too large to scrape given the site's extremely poor performance, my wish to avoid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 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): Additional updates regarding the status of this site will be posted on https://info.crazymeds.net

Broken News

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.

Why Can’t You Just Leave Me The Hell Alone?!?!?

Don’t worry, we will.

We care about you. We care that you get the right meds, or don’t take meds if they aren’t appropriate at all. We care about your health.

Be we really don’t give much of a rat’s ass about who you are, what your e-mail address is (except that a valid one is required if you register for the Crazymeds Talk forum), where you live (other than the country), how much money you have1, or anything like that. I do need to know about the computers and browsers used to access this site. The wiki and forum software will, in theory, automatically give you the format that will look the best for you depending on if you’re using a real computer2 or a mobile device, and if it is a mobile device whether it is a tablet or a phone, and what the screen dimensions are. Google likes to know that as well, so they can tailor their ads to you. Why that makes a difference to them is beyond me, but they know best, right?

So we’re all about HON code principle 3 - confidentiality. The only statistics I keep and make accessible to others are how many people read this site, which countries do all y’all hail from, and which search terms were used to find this place. I am once again publishing site statistics. I have published the approximate percentage of browser usage, and have discussed the percentage of people using mobile devices and which ones they use.

I can find out the IP addresses of visitors if absolutely required. It’s the only way we can effectively ban spammers and other total dickweeds. And as stated in the user agreement, you start discussing anything highly illegal, like selling drugs, you can bet your ass it gets turned over to the appropriate law enforcement officials as soon as it’s asked for. At least if they ask for it within two weeks, which is the maximum time the backup of the access logs hang around.

The forum software (Invision Power Board, or IPB) requires cookies to work. It saves your login information, when you were last on so it can tell you which topics are new, that sort of stuff. IPB software doesn’t track where you go or collect any information about you. Cookies are required only if you wish to be a member of the forum, but you don’t need to accept cookies to read without joining. The wiki software for the drug pages now creates a bunch of cookies in order determine the best display based on the device you’re using, and to remember any settings you’ve selected.

There used to be an option to delete all the cookies associated with your IPB session if you don’t like any cookies hanging around, you now need to do that manually. You need to manually remove the cookies the wiki software creates. While many, but not all of the cookies begin with crazy_meds_ , all of them are in a folder named crazymeds.net, so searching for crazymeds or crazymeds.net will show you most, but not all of the cookies created by both the forum and the wiki software. Looking for the crazymeds.net folder is a lot cleaner if you want to delete our cookies without having to delete all the cookies from all the sites you visit. How you find and delete cookies depends on the browser and device you are using.

Google is giving you a cookie when you visit any page on this site that has advertising, which means every page on this site. It’s all part of their targeted advertising campaign. You know, making the ads more relevant to you by tracking the websites you visit and all that. Reality is catching up with satire and/or science fiction faster and faster these days. If you don’t want the new masters of the universe my nearly-sentient global Overlord Google and, perhaps, some of the sites on the ads you click tracking the websites you visit you have two options. You can opt out of this service (because it’s always opt out) and/or do what I do, which is setting your browser to never accept third-party cookies. For more information read the page with the opt-out option, as it also has Google’s new privacy information regarding ads. Google also requires you to have third-party cookies activated in order to like/share us, Facebook will probably require that soon, and I have no idea what other social media/bookmarking site want. While liking us helps us a great deal, it’s certainly not required to read this site.

Another thing that is of interest to us is how you came to visit us, and if you found this site through a search engine what particular words you used in your search. Sometimes those search terms help us try to make this site better. Sometimes they just amuse us to no end.

Oh, don’t be embarrassed by our being amused by your particular choice of search terms, we have no way of connecting a search to you. Whoever needed to know about “Prozac” and “porno boobs,” I hope you found what you were looking for. We do our best with that sort of thing. We don’t know who you are, where you are or when you were even looking for that connection. It would even be difficult for the fucking NSA to track you down if they wanted to, for us it’s utterly impossible.

Coming out of the mental health closet is your decision. Stigma is a big deal in the English-speaking world. Just because I’m all out in the open about everything doesn’t mean you have to be. You may not be in a place in your life to come out. That’s fine with us. We respect your privacy.

And Don’t Go Near My Kids!

All of the above goes double for anyone under 16, especially since this site is not for, about, nor designed to attract anyone under 16. If you’re under 16, for God’s sake find an adult you trust to talk with. There has to be a priest counselor family member teacher Scout Master fuck, you might be better off hanging around the Greyhound station until you meet a stranger in a van looking for a lost puppy carrying a bag of candy. No, wait, don’t do that. Start here if you’re in crisis mode, or one of the Community, Info, and Support sites on the right sidebar. Click here if you don’t see the right sidebar.

Keep up with Crazymeds and and/or my slow descent into irreparable madness boring life. Pick your preferred social media target(s):

Almost all of the material on this site is by Jerod Poore and is copyright © 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 Jerod Poore.

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.
