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.us, so searching for crazymeds or crazymeds.us will show you most, but not all of the cookies created by both the forum and the wiki software. Looking for the crazymeds.us 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

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.
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.
