I'm pretty educated (three degrees and counting) -- think I'm pretty smart. But I am still probably in that category of the majority of those who come across this board -- I would be foolish to self-medicate. I just have not studied this stuff enough to have the basis to make those decisions for myself.
Yet, I am sure there have been times, and may yet be times in the future that I am in enough emotional pain that I could be tempted by the information set forth here to try it -- wanting a quick fix -- thinking that my pdoc isn't helping me, isn't available enough, is ignoring me. There is a lot of information on this board -- a lot of good information. But it needs to be filtered in most cases. If everyone is honest, then you will realize that there are few people on this board who truly have the knowledge to handle self-medicating.
