1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Such is what amazes me when I hear people wondering how much of one of these molecules would be a good high. Good Gravy!

    Yes, tis very surprising, the only good high those medications can cause are of the benzo's class and she would not recommend them. Psychiatrists in general are very good with "creative writing" when trying to describe people too, still its ment to make u feel better right.. lol

    Lol.. yeh funny thing that.. Strange how people change when it suddenly happens to you. although nothing new for swia. She herself wonders why some people were put on so many different meds in the first place and as a result had to stay longer due complications from a result from there medication.

    "Oh baby! Let's do some perchlorphenazine for a month and get ripped! We can get some Fluoxetine from Tina, too. Then when our legs swell up big as a phone-booth, we can party at the All-Night Junior High Dance and win the prize! Isn't it cool this stuff is easy to score?" <gulp!>

    Swim was perscribed Olanzapine without being told of the side-eefects even though swims Dr knew swim drove for a living and low and behold after about 6 months of this medication swim had a seizure behind the wheel of swims company van and had a bad crash, then a month later swim had another seizure cuased by the same drug luckily this time swim was not driving. When it came to find out what had caused the seizures it was the Olanzapine and not Epilepsy or any other abnormallity. Swim has had no other seizures for 9 months since coming of this medication. It would have been nice for someone to discuss these kind of things with us. We maybe abit crazy but we aren't STUPID.
