Should I be giving untrained medication advice on line?

Note this is not an anti medication thread.

I’ve been a member here for about 9 years, and on occasion I have discussed my medication use with other members online looking for insight into their own medication use, or possibly taking medication in the future, etc.

And I wonder sometimes, given the large amount of medical conditions/symptoms that mimic AD(H)D, if I should be giving medication advice online especially when I am not professionally trained to do so?

Should people looking for medication advice online be consulting their doctors?

Thoughts appreciated.
