okay, I have to give my two cents. as a relative newbie here on the board, i am appreciative of ALL the information people choose to share, good bad, and indifferent - HOWEVER - no one here knows my medical history (race, gender, height, etc. for that matter!), so it would be pretty presumptuous to SUGGEST a med for me. In the same light, I would not be very smart to take anything anyone says here as gospel and make a health decision solely because Sal or Cam or anyone "said so." The point I think that people are missing though is that alot of people come to this board in a very difficult place emotionally, it goes without saying that as you try and navigate your way through ADs, there are going to be times when you feel pretty fragile - and may find yourself doing things or making decisions that you wouldn't make under "normal" circumstances. Out of respect for those situations, babblers really should qualify the information that they offer as simply their experience, understanding, or opinion because that really is all that it is. And, always suggest involving a doctor, because if shit goes wrong and heaven forbid there is a serious emergency, it will be a doctor you turn to for help, not your computer.

Besides, why do you think Dr. Bob doesn't get on here and tell everyone what to take!
