    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

I went to the VAMC (Mental Health) and they took me off of Trazodone and put me on Seroquel 400 mg. They left me on the Bupropion though.

Haven't had a good night sleep in forever. Guess that is why the dosage is so high.

Has anyone been prescribed this medication? What do you think about it?

I was prescribe Seroquel once, and did not have good results - it is 50% benadryl so helps with sleep (NOT for me). The biggest adverse effect it had on me was that it did not help my moods at all, and my HgbA1C started to rise, so they discontinued it.

Not saying it wouldn't work for you, hope it does, but it did not work for me.

Seroquel works well for me.

I haven't had labs drawn in almost 2 years so I don't know

if it has elevated anything or not.

I've taken Trazodone, had to get off of it. It made very disoriented and half out of it all the time. Never been on Seroquel that I remember. Over the years I have been on a lot of different medications for sleep. This year we changed again, I asked to change because sleep is a major problem for me.

So now I take 1/2 of Remeron and if I am not asleep after an hour I take 1 ambien and 1 xanaax. The Remeron usually does the trick but about once a week I still have to take the ambien and xaanax. I'm ok with that, it is the most wonderful thing to lay down in bed and be able to go to sleep.

I hope you have good luck with Seroquel, but if you don't they can change it to something else.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
