My psych meds(effexor) stopped working for me about a year ago.I would go to the doctor about it and all they ended up doing was increasing the amount.It finally got to the point that they had me so doped up that I could no longer function.I was hospitalized in the psych ward three times in hampton va to get this straightened out.I finally moved down to NC to get help at a different hospital.They decided to put me in the mental ward and change my meds back to zoloft and seroquel.I was on zoloft before with good results.This time I started experiencing hallucinations and hearing voices(sounded like an alarm clock radio playing somewhere).Needless to say,I stopped the zoloft and the hallucinations and radio sounds went away.(It was kind of funny trying to find where the radio noise was coming from untill I realized it was in my head.)

Yesterday I went to see my shrink and explained the hallucinations and sounds from taking zoloft.He asked me why I thought it was the zoloft.I told him that I didn't have those problems before zoloft and since I stopped the zoloft, the voices went away.He prescribed me haldol.

I looked up Haldol last night and it looks like it is some pretty bad stuff.It says it is for people with hallucinations.I'm not having hallucinations anymore.

Has anyone on here taken this stuff?

I'm sick of feeling like a guinea pig.I have an appointment next Monday with a different shrink.Should I wait to see him?

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
