Thanks for your attention to that. What did go through was the most important. Thanks

Just an update for anyone who is curious how making a switch could affect ad revenues. We ran a short test including temporary 302 redirects for all of our pages to the HTTPS versions and noticed a 13% drop in overall revenue (RPM). Furthermore, a number of ad networks which we have worked with were unable to support this without throwing mixed content security warnings. Seeing as how our business model relies on advertising for all of our revenue, we've just deployed a quasi-solution for the time being: (1) All forms which collect user information are submitted via HTTPS. (2) The rest of the site (i.e. pages with ads) are served over HTTP. At the very least this should help the user experience (but I admit that we are not finished here and that this is not a permanent fix), but our hope is that this could be a helpful interim solution for our users until the online advertising ecosystem catches up to this standard. I welcome feedback or questions from anyone.

It was good meeting you & thank you for your kind words. While we don't currently have a dedicated service for pet medications, we do have some threads on the site which people did start regarding their pet's meds. Wow your pooch is a ripe old age - I hope that ours can live that long!

Very interesting - Washington post published info about NASA's Grail lunar mission: They will be gathering lots of high res imagery from the far side of the moon. They included a link to a NASA photo located at http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/620251main_grail20120201-full.jpg - after looking at the photo I found a strange shape in one of the craters. Let's all speculate what that can be LOL ... ;) Original article: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/post/the-full-snow-moon-comes-tuesday-and-see-the-far-side/2012/02/06/gIQABmiNuQ_blog.html

Anyone know the ingredients in Strovite Advance?
MedsChat originally shared:
 
Community Discussion: "The ingredients in this multivitamin do not appear to be listed anywhere online. I'm not sure why this is, but it may be a product that is manufactured outside of the U.S. and that would explain the lack of information available on it.From what I could gather, this is the only thing listed for active ingredients:"multiple vitamins with minerals"I would recommend contacting the manufactured that you purchased your Strovite (iron free) from and ask whether or not their other product contains similar ingredients. I don't see why they wouldn't be able to provide you with a list of ingredients over the phone or through email if you have ordered from them before.Alternatively, I would consider taking the pill over to your local pharmacy and having it analyzed by their team to see if they can come up with anything. And as a last resort, you could ask them about getting the pills ingredients lab tested and brought back to you. I hope this helps!"

Getting ready to re-launch The People's Medicine Community at its new home this weekend. Wow, such a large checklist to follow! This will be the most major upgrade to the platform since it was originally designed & built in 2005! Fingers crossed

+Fineas Smith No I'm not, but my site has faced a few challenges relating to policy, and we've implemented a number of measures in order to remain compliant. (The nature of our site drugs / medical content can sometimes be a gray area).

From our forums: "Okay,my opinion,First-Vermon,thank you for all your advice,websites,your opinions,suggestions and just kind words.I,too,am a chronic pain patient.I've been on some sort of narcotic since 1995 due to RSD/CRSPS from a 'botched' ankle surgery.Currently I am prescribed Max6-10/325mgPerc & 4-10mgMethadone per day & I'm very near the point where they are not helping with the pain--at all.I wake in the morning and lay in bed,on the couch & wait for the evening bed time to come around again.I'm seriously in pain.When you say addiction,explain what that means.Yes I take narcotics & I think my body is at the point where what I take in a day just isn't enough,is my body just too used to this size/mg & my body needs more or am I addicted?These things confuse me.Like others on this forum,I'm afraid to 'discuss' different medicine options with my doc,who I've been with since Sept 1995,afraid that he will think that I just want more to get 'high'.I do not & don't think I ever have been 'high' on any of my RXs--Is that a good thing or bad thing? I'm thinking of discussing Opana's with my pain doctor,what is your opinion on Opana's vs percocet vs dilaudid vs methadone vs morphine vs fentanyl vs ETC? I really value your opinion&suggestions and would really appreciate a reply from you. Thank you again for your time and knowledge.It is appreciated by me. TakeCare,BeWell&StaySafe"
