Know your sources! Don't just trust some random website. Just because it's on the Internet doesn't automatically make it true! Plus, who is paying for you to know about all the stuff you read on any given website?

In keeping with HON Principle 7 - Transparency of Sponsorship & HON Principle 8 - Transparency of Advertising & Editorial Policy -

In short - I'm paying for everything out of my own pockets.  I keep all of the income generated by the pages with information about medications, conditions, etc.  That's from both ads and donations.  On the Crazy Meds Talk forum I split the advertising revenue with the moderators.  I also give the moderators all of the money donated on the forum pages.

I tried to keep and publish a detailed accounting of income and expenses, but my life got way too complicated in 2005.  By 2007 it was a total disaster.  I have no idea when I'll fully recover from it.  In any event I'm in no shape to keep track of this sort of thing.  Money comes in, money goes out.  The site pays for itself in terms of domain hosting, software and stuff like that.

Our advertising policies get a page of their own.



The Overlords of the 12 Zernox Galaxies have compelled me through messages in the Sunday Chronicle to beg you for funds to help squash the Arachnoid uprising. So if this site has been of use and/or amusement to you, we'd be grateful if you could donate some cash.

Visit the Support Page for how you can help if you don't have any money laying around.   This includes reviewing Crazy Meds for and/or

rating this site for Psych Central:

There's also our Mental Mall, to purchase some books or t-shirts.

If you're letting me know about how much you like or hate the site, or  need to let me know about medication effects in private, then just drop a note to jerod23 at gmail dot com  Honestly, I usually don't have a lot of time to answer e-mail these days.  The snide autoresponse message that may or may not hit your mailbox is going to tell you the same thing.
Another problem is that you may not get a response even if I wanted to send you one.  You see, so many dickweeds with malicious intents and too much time on their hands have appropriated the domain name to use for their spam, viruses and the like.  Subsequently some lazy-ass e-mail protection software authors just go by the domain name, and not the IP address.  So I've been blacklisted because of the actions of others.  Or the software just doesn't like the domain name because of the "crazy" and/or "meds."  Or your question about a particular medication will set off spam flags.  So the e-mail just wouldn't go through regardless.  Sorry.

Hey, did you find this page all by itself through Google or some other search engine? Great! But to really appreciate the entire site, you need to start here.

All rights reserved. No warranty is expressed or implied in this information. Consult one or more doctors and 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. Nobody on this site is a doctor, therapist, or a pharmacist. We don't portray them either here or on TV. Only doctors can diagnose and treat an illness. Some doctors tend to 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 medication. Self-prescribing is just as dangerous.  All information on this site has been obtained through personal experience, the experiences of my friends, the experiences of people reported on online support groups, and from sources that are referenced throughout the site.  Know your sources!  As such the information presented here is not a substitute for real medical advice from your real doctor, just a compliment to it.  No neurologists, psychiatrists, therapists or pharmacists were harmed in the production of this website. All brand names of the drugs listed in this site are the trademarks of the companies listed after them in the pages about the drugs, even though those companies may or may not have been acquired by other companies who may or may not be listed in this site by the time you read this. Always read the PI sheet that comes with your medications and never ever throw them away.  If you didn't get a PI sheet, demand one.  Loudly.  Crazy Meds is not responsible for the content of sites we provide links to.  We like them, or they're paid advertisements, or they're something you should read to 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. And from time to time I do look at search terms used to find it in an effort to make the information I present more relevant. Use only as directed. Void where prohibited.
