> > To make an educated decision depends upon one knowing the facts. This community prohibits me from posting facts that could be included in one's decision as to take a drug or not. So if this community is for support and education, the prohibitions to me here by Mr. Hsiung could establish an indoctrination here by the exclusion of my input involving education to help people make a decision.
> > So this community can lead one to death by the nature of prohibiting me from posting facts. One can come here and see the statements that could arouse antisemitic feelings that are allowed to stand and the pages of outstanding requests from me to Mr. Hsiung that go back days, weeks months and years which IMHHO is the antithesis of support. The poster here wants to be free from Tramadol and if the prohibitions to me were not made, I think that the poster could be delivered out from the bondage of the drug by reading the facts that I am prohibited from posting here. Is not the forum's (redacted by respondent) oxymoronic?

> Okay, Lou, here's my last response, because I'm not comfortable that underthesky's question for help with Tramadol has been hijacked, but I feel strongly enough to reply.
> By making an educated decision, I consider feedback from my doctor, my pharmacist, other patients/reviews, any literature I can get my hands on, and my own experiences and biochemistry. The very idea that we all possess a unique biochemistry makes the "facts" about meds a generally fluid concept. I take medication knowing that side effects and other risks are possible at any dose. And I do this because I need relief from symptoms of depression that prevent me from functioning if left untreated. Information sourced from you tube doesn't constitute as "fact".
> I'm curious as to where there is anti-Semitism on this site (or comments that provoke anti-Semitic feelings). I am Jewish (my grandparents on both sides are all originally from Europe and came to the US before and after WW2), and I would be extremely appalled at such sentiments. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I just haven't seen it here.
