Sunnely - Don't even bother to try to use reason, on this subject. Sal feels that he has a right to self-medicate with prescription medication; objective insight be damned. He also seems to believe that he is qualified to prescribe this medication to others, without first taking even something as simple as a history.
I think that we have to wait, and keep away from his posts as much as possible, to avoid being sucked into any potential litigation. Sal loves playing doctor (prescribing treatments and telling people to change their medication regimens); and is now urging people to buy FDA-unapproved medication without a prescription from overseas pharmacies. His preaching of this is far worse than anything JohnL ever did.
For example, Sal is self-prescribing and self-monitoring a combination of moclobemide and bromocriptine (Nuff said?).
Dr.Bob seems to think that his own butt is covered by his disclaimer. A death caused by Sal's actions would make "great copy" for a future journal article, but I am not sure that this is Bob's intent. Pleas by myself and others have generally fallen on deaf ears; Sal is going to pretend he has a medical background, no matter what we say.
I guess we just stand back and watch it happen. Caveat emptor? Indeed!
