Things like mental illness, crippling neuropathy, epilepsy, and frequent, blinding migraines can't be dealt with by gentle hugs, prayer and pretty angels, or the fad diet of the week with a basket full of overpriced supplements. Like a lot of aspects of life where you have to make a decision between two options, your only choice is to figure out which one is going to suck less.

Once upon a time these conditions were totally invisible and everyone thought we were making it up as an excuse to avoid whatever we had to do.  Now they are visible, more-or-less, on MRIs, CT, SPECT and PET scans, and various flavors of EEGs.  Eventually there will be accurate and affordable genetic tests, although that could do as much harm as good.  There are also measurable differences in the brains of people who have various conditions vs. those who have none.  They are the most obvious in those with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.  We're almost at the point of being able to identify with really good certainty that someone has bipolar or schizophrenia (but usually cannot distinguish between them) based upon the physical characteristics of their brain ''while they're still alive''.  Although there will always be people[^##family^] who think we're faking it, or that we can simply "get over it."  If it were as simple as spraying WD-40 up our noses, wrapping our heads in duct tape instead of tinfoil, and walking it off, don't they think we'd try that[^##no^]?
[^##family All too often they're family members or employers.^]
[^##no Please don't try that.  The combination of WD-40 and duct tape can fix a lot of things, but not brain cooties.^]

Things like mental illness, crippling neuropathy, epilepsy, and frequent, blinding migraines can't be dealt with by gentle hugs, prayer and pretty angels, or the fad diet of the week with a basket full of overpriced supplements. Like a lot of aspects of life where you have to make a decision between two options, your only choice is to figure out which one is going to suck less.

* [[MedClass/NP|Medications for Headaches and Neuropathic Pain]].  "Headache" usually, but does not always mean "migraine."  Like every condition discussed on this site, officially or unofficially, headaches are a spectrum disorder.  Neuropathic pain is a catch-all term for specific conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia (sometimes misdiagnosed as migraines) to "chronic idiopathic pain" - which is doctorese for, "it may or may not be psychological in origin, but the pain is obviously real even if we don't have a clue as to what's causing it."  The drugs used to treat are primarily AEDs, like [[Topamax]] and [[Neurontin]], and some [[antidepressants]], like [[Cymbalta]].

If you do need to take medication the math is really simple: which sucks less?  Taking an imperfect medication that controls the symptoms of a condition that puts your life somewhere in the spectrum of "barely tolerable" to "dear God please kill me now;" or trying to get through life with that same condition which will keep getting worse the longer you go without treating it.  A lot of these meds suck donkey dong, but you know what? When you're mentally ill, and/or have some neurological problem like epilepsy or migraines, and you're not taking any medications, or not taking the ''right'' medications, it sucks syphilitic donkey dong while a red-hot poker is being jammed up your ass.

You don't think it's that bad?  That's because you're reading this site, which is on the Internet.  Which means you have access to the resources needed to read it.  Have you ever been homeless and crazy?  I have.  Twice.  Have you ever been in the lock ward of a psychiatric hospital?  I have.  Before Medicare Part D-for-Defraud existed, which was also when all the meds I took were available only as brand, I ran up so much credit-card debt paying for them I had to sell my house.  But I was lucky, because:
# I had a house to sell.  Most of the mentally interesting don't.
# I also had credit cards, as do many of my fellow bipolar types do.  And we often run them to the limit.  At least I didn't buy anything stupid.[^##fail^]
# I sold it in 2004, so I got out of the real estate pyramid scheme before it all came crashing down on everybody.
And my experiences were ''nothing'' compared with the lives of people I saw around me.  I'm a fucking poseur when it comes to the syphilitic donkey dong and red-hot poker meeting each other in my stomach.  I may no longer be able to hold down a job, a relationship, or be moderately functional more than a few hours a day a few days a week (at best), but I don't live in a constant state of fear inside of a cardboard box.[[<<]]
So, if you ''really'' need meds and aren't taking them, or taking them sporadically, or if you're taking completely inappropriate medications, then you had better get ready.  Falling into the abyss happens faster than you can imagine.[[<<]]
And it's no picnic if you're taking neurological / psychiatric medications when you shouldn't be taking any at all.

We recognize that there are legitimate, and highly successful ways to treat serious neurological and psychiatric conditions that don't involve medication.  Lifestyle changes can do wonders for preventing migraines.  Talk therapy is one of the best ways to handle depression.  Specific types of ''prescription'' iron supplements are all some people need for restless leg syndrome (RLS).  These and other non-medication, but still non-placebo treatments are all a lot of people need.  If you think they might work for you, that's great.  Crazy Meds is by and for people whose conditions respond only, or primarily to prescription medications.

This is the beta of Version 2.  Released much sooner than I wanted as far too many of the pages that haven't changed much since 2004 are no longer viewable with IE 8, Firefox 4, Chrome, and maybe other browsers.  So there are lots of heroically fugly pages, dead-ends, unfinished & barely started pages, and a general atmosphere of ADD, chaos and confusion.  In other words
, it's early 2004 all over again, only with less chance of my landing in the lock ward.

If you know the name of the medication(s) you're looking for, you'll probably want our [[MedClass/MedList | list of drugs by name.]]  It's pretty big, with all
the meds we know about to treat various conditions. The list is more-or-less in alphabetical order, by both generic and brand name, and includes all the brand/trade names we can find for every med.

To resurrect my old analogy, these are physical conditions like a broken leg.  The above tests are like x-rays, although currently they are extremely expensive aren't always worth the cost.  Regardless, you get your diagnosis and your meds are your cast and crutches.  If your leg is totally hosed, your meds are like a cane and the pins they need to implant, both of which you'll probably need to have for a very long time, if not permanently.  And just as you need to explain the cane you need to help you walk and the pins when you go through metal detectors or get an MRI, so too must you explain your condition and meds at certain times in your life.

We deal with the cerebral equivalent of broken legs.  Physical conditions, not purely psychological ones, that are treated with physical methods: drugs, surgery, or electromagnetism.  The information on this site is to help you work with your doctor(s) to find the right treatment options.  Too many of us get nothing more than 15-minute appointments with overworked doctors or nurse-practitioners, so we need all the help we can get.  We need to talk to our prescribers about the ''best'' med treat our condition, and not the most profitable one

This is the beta of Version 2.  Released much sooner than I wanted as far too many of the pages that haven't changed much since 2004 are no longer viewable with IE 8, Firefox 4, Chrome, and maybe other browsers.

If you know the name
of the medication(s) you're looking for, you'll probably want our [[MedClass/MedList | list of drugs by name.]]  It's pretty big, with all the meds we know about to treat various conditions. The list is in alphabetical order, by both generic and brand/trade name, and includes all the brand/trade names we can find for every med.

The math is really simple: which sucks less?  An imperfect medication that controls the symptoms of a condition that would otherwise make your life barely tolerable, or trying to get through live with an untreated condition that makes your life barely tolerable and will keep getting worse the longer you go without treating it.
