In addition to what Jaynee says, I'm very surprised that whatever you read here did not have a variety of opinions expressed about it, some that would have warned against an idea that was so apparently harmful. Generally, if there is misinformation in a thread it is corrected by others. On this type of forum, I believe that is what we should expect. That level of participation is what is 'advertised' in all the caveats issued when you register and in the FAQ--this site is not promoted as a physician's advice, or medical care and advice forum, nor does it indicate anywhere that the forum is monitored and/or maintained by medical personnel.

People can discuss their meds here--regular people, but self-diagnosis and self-medication are not 'officially' encouraged/recommended (even the majority of posters recommend people talk to their pdocs before modifying their meds).

If you have suggestions about how to make this more clear, that could be very helpful. However, eliminating this forum would, imo, do much more harm than good. I would hate to lose one of the only forums of this type, where people can talk about their meds experiences openly, with other folks who are on or may have been on the same meds. It is rare, in real life, to meet anybody on the same meds, and then there is the n=1 problem, to boot.

> I personally am very grateful for this site, and appreciate it. I would like it better if it wasn't edited at all, but maybe then things would get out of control. Some control is a good thing. But I personally like living in a free society, where the healthy exchange of ideas flow easily and freely. As adults we are the only ones to blame for our own actions.
