  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Quetiapine 100Mg Feedback?

Question

Has anyone been given Quetiapine 100 MG tab for PTSD? My doc has given me 3 types of sleeping pills and none has helped. Today he "upgraded" to this medicine and told me to be careful since I am going to be pretty sedated from it? I also take another pill for anxiety as well called citalophram....The upgrade in medication was because today was my appt with the PTSD doctor and I told him about stuff this month and how it has been rough...due to the 9/11 tv coverage etc.....so he said my symptoms are worst

9/11 adniversary hit me pretty hard since Im from NYC, loss a HS friend in the collapse, lost a few friends in the war (a HS buddy shot in the neck in Iraq for example)...then us not catching Bin Laden in 04 (i was there when Afghanistan was having their first "democratic" elections....so we had to protect voters, ballots, politicians, and then chase and hunt insurgents!)...

LOL im on top of my Meds because they help plus I dont want to spend money buying over the counter stuff.... so today, after I left his office, I got online and check My heatlhy vet and he placed the order already...should be here in about 7-10 days...

My Doc prescribed that for me recently as well. I have yet to receive them though. Sometimes he will prescribe something and I will never get it. The next appointment with him I will ask him and he will say " Oh .... You never got those? I must have forgot."

Zombie huh? Oh well.....I could probably deal with the Zombie must maybe not the headaches.

    • 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...
