Default why cant I print a thread with meds info since I am considering meds change?

I want to print info on bipolar meds on a thread because I am contemplating a meds change?
Why are we unable to print info from a thread?
Yes some people on the forums are impressionable, but there is triggering info on the forums every day. Everyone knows we are not doctors, but I have gotten more help from Psych Central in my 40 years w bipolar than from any doctor. Now docs have 15 minute sessions on average w Medicare and I believe many ins plans, and thats ridiculous. Why shouldnt I be able to print something extremely helpful that someone is discussing the forums here?

I'm so sorry you're experiencing this issue. However, it's difficult for anyone to help with a technical issue -- and we do want to help you! -- without having some basic information about what it is exactly you are trying to do, and then the technical error or exact problem you're experiencing.

What type of computer are you using? What browser? What error message are you receiving when you choose "File > Print"?

The forums aren't doing anything that blocks you from printing a page (just tested it on Firefox and Chrome and works fine). Maybe if I knew what specific thread you're referencing as well, I could help you further.

I use print friendly for webpages. You copy and pasted the link into the bar and it generates a print friendly page of the info you were looking to print.

ógreat to know we can print from the forums. Thanks, Sarah, I finally worked it out. Finding a doctor I trust to do a medication change will be a lot harder. I know what my current pdoc suggested wonít work and so far 2 anti psychotics have caused panic attacks. Iím not a nut. I have 3 degrees (not that that guarantees logic) and am disgusted with the 15 minute sessions. Private pdocs often donít give more time. I called UCLA and they wonít take me because I am over 65. Mayo here in Phoenix is booked up. I will try calling the Arizona Psychiatric Association for a referral. This really shouldnít be this hard..
My brother is on a couple boards and has some connections but thatís a little iffy and what does the average person do? Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated.
