Breaking News!

As the only serious offers I’ve received can’t meet the price I need, Crazymeds is off the market for now. I’ll have to find some other way to raise the money to move, preferably before a seizure-induced accident kills me.

In the meantime I’m reformatting pages to make the site less mobile-hostile, as most visitors are using smartphones and other mobile devices. As I do all the work on a 23-inch monitor, and have a Samsung Strives-to-be-smart phone for testing, I have no real idea what this site looks like for most of the people who see it.

Hey, How’ya Doing?

Welcome to Crazymeds, where we try to explain more about psychiatric and neurological medications than the WebMD family1 and any other site that offers “FDA-approved” information. Instead of reformatted for a more advertising-rich experience2, but otherwise word-for-word copies of the same medication guides and prescribing information / package inserts (PI) that often are supposed to come with your meds3, Crazymeds is where you can learn what’s good, what’s bad, what’s interesting, and what’s plain weird and funny about the medications used to treat depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, epilepsy, migraines, anxiety, neuropathic pain, or whatever psychiatric and/or neurological conditions you might have. We give you details other sites don’t, ones that are really helpful for you to work with your doctor(s) to find the right treatment options. Things like:

  • How likely a med will work to treat what you have.
  • When will it start to work.
  • What its pros and cons are.
  • How long side effects stick around
    • and what, if anything, can be done about them.


You Can Find What You’re Looking For!

If you know the name of the medication(s) you’re looking for, you’ll probably want our list of drugs by names and class/category. There’s also our much larger list of all the meds we know about to treat various conditions, including all the brand/trade names we can find for every med in every country in which each is available. We also have the drugs sorted into broad categories with lots of overlapping memberships:

1 WebMD owns eMedicineHealth, RxList, Medscape, MedicineNet, and theheart.org.

2 Like I should give them shit about ad-rich environments.

3 If you didn't get that information with your meds, we have it. You can also get it from the drug's official website - which we link to - the U.S. National Institutes of Health's collection of medication guides at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginformation.html , and their direct-from-the-FDA package inserts (AKA "FDA-approved information") at http://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/about.cfm . All on one page without any ads.
At least Drugs.com, while they get a most of their content about individual drugs from the PIs and medication guides, also gets and presents info from other sources. Eventually they put up stuff we've had since 2004, like trade names and availability outside of the US, and popular off-label uses. Like most sites they had drug ratings long before I did. They also have the best drug-whatever interaction checker since AIDSmeds took theirs off the air, and generally the best pill identifier I've seen. And they go overboard with a lot of their HONcode requirements like I do. If you can't find what you're looking for here, go there.

4 Note how I've emphasized the word ADULT. Crazymeds deals with adults. Other than listing a medication's pediatric approvals, warnings about not prescribing a med to kids, and reminding some people how lucky they are to not have children with specific forms of neurological or psychiatric disorders, we don't deal with children. We especially do not deal with kids on the Crazy Talk forum. Parents: you'll need to go elsewhere. I don't have the emotional stamina to help you.
