Site statistics | About Crazymeds | Off-site Crazymeds Sites

If you’d rather get your What’s New info from someplace that doesn’t take a bazillion years to load, somewhere else for whatever reason try this page of links to other Crazymeds sites.
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. Updates prior to whenever the hell I feel like moving them can be found on the updates archive.
If you need to track every update the moment it happens, the PmWiki software automagically tracks all changes to all pages, so if you want to see it every little detail in the updates I’ve made1:

17 November 2014

  • Merry ℞mas everyone! We have an assortment of ℞mas cards and gifts available so you can celebrate being mentally interesting and medicated while fulfilling holiday obligations.
  • I don’t know why it took me so long to think of it, but I’m now archiving these updates on a separate page.
  • After looking at the overlap a few times too many I merged the SSRI and SNRI into one page, and have expanded, or eventually will expand, the subsequent SSRI-related pages to include SNRIs.
    • Why, I might even finish the page on SSRI/SNRI Discontinuation Syndrome.
  • I’ve been OCDing like crazy about getting every freaking trade name used around the world for Effexor and Celexa, especially Effexor, along with PILs and SPCs in 20–30 different languages.
    • Why? Because you never know when you’re going to need one in Georgian or Maltese or Icelandic, do you?

21 September 2014

  • I put this up almost a month ago (2 September), wrote about it all over the usual places, but neglected to enter it here. And it’s something I’d been meaning to do for quite some time. Free Wallpapers! So don’t say I’ve never given you people anything. Better versions will be available as posters at Straitjacket T-shirts.
  • Speaking of which, more new merchandise:
  • Currently we’ve been able to identify Bipolar, Depression, Epilepsy, OCD, PTSD, and Schizophrenia as forms of brain cooties that are NOT contagious.
    • I’ll see how it sells and/or gets much action on the social media front before deciding if I’ll create a version of “Mental Illness is NOT Contagious” for shirts, mugs, and buttons. It’s just on a bumpersticker for now.

28 August 2014

  • Most of the work I’ve been doing there involves updating designs with the latest, and probably final, version of the Pill Font.

06 June 2014

Happy “Holy Fuck! Grandpa was the Toughest Badass on the Planet” day.

I’ve been doing a bunch of crap over the last month. Having my wallet stolen was a great impetus for getting work done, to the point where I was tweaking things so much that additions to some pages became articles in their own right. I’m still not completely satisfied with most of these, as if I ever am with anything I do, but it’s about time I announced them:

  • I managed to add a useful feature to the Crazymeds wiki I’ve wanted for some time. We now have a Glossary of Terms, Abbreviations, Acronyms and Initialisms.
    • I had set it up so every time you hovered your mouse’s pointer over a term, abbreviation, acronym or initialism highlighted in green the definition would pop up.
    • Like everything else on the wiki it’s more complicated than I wanted it to be. Due to performance issues (Phrasing!) I had to split the glossary into two files.
      • One file for the hovering mouse pointer, with fewer, shorter entries to pop up with definitions for things I guess are unfamiliar to many readers. These have links to …
      • The larger Glossary of Terms, etc., where the entries themselves have much greater detail. There are also definitions for things that won’t be highlighted in green.
    • More terms, etc. are being added all the time.
  • I’ve written Evaluating Research Papers: a page on how to tell if a research paper to which any random high school drop-out with a website links is itself legitimate or bogus.
  • The General Bibliography is now Crazymeds’ General Bibliography & Guide to Medical Research Sites.
  • I’m revamped the Guides to Decoding Our Med Articles & Getting Unlost.
    • I’ve updated the section on the site’s features for tablets and real computers.
    • I’ve also improved (I hope) explaining what everything on single-page drug articles and the overview (AKA first) page of multiple-page drug articles.
    • I’m plowing through the rest of the pages on the more-detailed articles. It’s kind of difficult as the more-detailed pages already explain what everything means.
      • At least, they’re supposed to. If I could make them clearer, I would do so on those pages, and wouldn’t require an article on how to decode them.
      • Except for the pharmacology pages.
      • Even through the whole point of them is to make the pharmacology your meds somewhat understandable if you don’t have a med school degree.

28 March 2014

Some things are old, some things are really old, and some things are relatively new.
Buy now! Sorry. By now most everyone has probably noticed the plethora of Amazon ads that have infested the site. Look, here’s one now:

With the commission I get on these sales, and that I keep insisting people buy their books and other crap from local stores, assuming you have any, you’d wonder why I’m doing it. As do I. Every time I add them to a page I feel like Jean Genet on a Marseille wharf. But way back in 2004–2005, when traffic was less than a quarter of what it is today (and a sixth of what it was compared with the number of visitors we were getting in the Spring & Summer of 2013), it would bring in $100 some months. Granted that was probably due to someone’s mania-induced spending-spree, which I like to rationalize as one or both of

  • Filling a shopping list for some personal holiday
  • They were going to spend it all anyway; I may as well make a direct profit off of someone’s madness along with all the indirect cash-from-crazy that has been supporting me for the last five or six years.

So books and other crap that Amazon thinks you’ll like, based upon whatever cookies you may have lying around from your previous visits there, the contents of the page you’re on, and whatever keywords I feed it, or books available from Burning Mind Books, will be displayed for your retail therapy needs.

  • In case you didn’t follow the link to Burning Mind Books, it’s not the same old Amazon store. OK, It is. But it’s now embedded, for her pleasure, in the wiki. And to enhance opportunities for achieving a quality retail experience.

As for site content…

1 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. Sorry.

Almost all of the material on this site is by Jerod Poore and is copyright © 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Jerod Poore. Except, of course, the PI sheets - those are the property of the drug companies who developed the drugs the sheets are about - and any documents that are written by other people which may be posted to this site will remain the property of the original authors. 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 through our personal experience and the experiences family, friends, what people have reported on various reputable sites all over teh intergoogles, the medications’ product information / summary of product characteristic (PI/SPC) sheets, and from sources that are referenced throughout the site. 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 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 the browser you’re not using on the platform you wish you had. Between you and me, it all looks a lot cleaner using Safari or Chrome, although more than half of the visitors to this site use either Safari or Internet Explorer, so I’m doing my best to make things look nice for IE as well. I’m using Firefox and running 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.

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 of anonymity. 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.
