I can't believe I haven't posted this link yet. It's really THE best site to find out everything you want to know about any meds you're taking. They describe, in layman's terms (with links to all the technical doctor & pharma-speak stuff too), pretty much all meds for any and every brain disorder, brain pain, chronic pain, headaches/migraines, epilepsy, allergies, and more.
Also includes links to drug PI sheets and at least most of the "official" sites for each one too.
I like their forums too, both serious and funny stuff, just like us (only NOT rated "G" - the moderator makes this point clear on the first page.
The above URL is for CrazyMeds, and the forum, CrazyBoards.org is located here:
A word of *Caution* - this site is meant for adults and those NOT offended by certain language. There is a LOT of both slang and some swearing, so if that's offensive or bothersome to you, then please don't go here. They talk and write like me (when not posting on WebMD, I mean. Potty mouth queen that I am. )
I've been using these boards for almost 2 years, and I subscribe to almost all of their RSS feeds.
