Just a fan letter, a local psychiatrist gave us the name of your site and we have found it extremely useful and informative this week in connection with new medication for a family member – and also I really like the approachable/informal tone of the narrative entries and answers to questions. Usually material for patients/general public is patronising and dumbed-down to the point where I resort to material for professionals – this site is a refreshing change. Also appreciated the info about where the information comes from and how you are funded. Thank you for all your hard work with this site – it is fantastic.

Realistic, pragmatic, detailed, reflects anecdotal reports not just the pharma labels.

I have been enjoying reading the site you manage for ‘Choice and Medication’ West London Mental Health Team. Being a mature student doing a PgDip Mental Health Nursing course I am seeking to learn and understand the complex world of mental health. I have found your views on many subjects very interesting. Keep up the good work!

I was recently running a training session for medical secretaries at our hospital and as part of this session I directed the staff to the choice and medication website. They all found the website to be extremely informative and very interested. Thank you!

I just read the agomelatine page and I was really impressed and will use your website in the future, when usually I just go by the top few Google results. Thank you for your clear and concise explanations. If there is an individual author, please send my compliments. In particular, I commend your approach to illicit drug information – honest and realistic with a bit of warnings snuck in. Perfect!

I just wanted to express my thanks for the information you have available on Quetiapine. I have found it very difficult to find information on the drugs interaction with pregnancy and breast feeding due to the lack of human trials. This is the first information that I have found that is honest but still provides me with hope that being on my medication is an option. It has been well written and has provided me with a resource which I can take to discuss with my consultant.

I’ve been suffering from an eating disorder since I was about 8 [I’m <snip> now] and in recent years very severe/acute anxiety. I came across this site when trying to learn more about Benzos since I’m being put on a 2 week trial of regular diazepam. I then read more into your site and honestly think it’s one of the best ones out there. The info about EDs isn’t belittling or complete rubbish like so many other sites. I love the layout of the sections about medication and it genuinely answered all of my questions. You should be really proud of yourselves. 🙂

Currently in living in Japan with depression/anxiety problems and am thinking of going onto antidepressants.  A doctor friend of mine recommended your site as a well-written and informative site – and it is!  Thanks!
