I checked it out, but can't find the old board for medication questions (don't remember exactly what it was called, but you could go there and ask others about side effects of meds etc.... why do we not have a board like that anymore??

hello, snowy --

i started this topic/resource because i've had a terrible time finding this transition chart over and over. i'll find it once, then forget how to find it again and spend ages looking for it.

there used to be a message board under"mental health/medications" that apparently has fallen by the wayside. now medication Qs have to come thru the individual exchanges, e.g., "depression," "bipolar," etc. in other words, find your disease/disorder, then do a meds Q thru that exchange.

the other thing that i have found helpful is to look at the meds info thru the "find a drug" link. go to the blue bar across the top of any page, and hover over "drugs and supplements." click on "find a drug." that takes you to a page where you can plug in the name of a med. when you get to the individual page for each med, it will have tabs for "warnings," "side effects," "interactions," etc.

hello again, snowy --

one other thing. once you get to the page for an individual med, look just above the part with the tabs, where there will be a link to "user reviews." once you go the the "user reviews" page, you can find a lot of info about a med, based on people's individual experiences.
