I also have enough iron to build a tank but have been on venaflaxine for 3 years with no problems so far.

I been taking xanax for axiety and since I have to get phlebotomies every 6 weeks I don.t worry about it. If it does have iron in it, it's only a minute amount anyway.

Like I said before, I've had iron overload for 20 years and never worried about taking anything that had iron in it. Just keep away from liver and iron pills and you'll be just fine, as long you keep up with your phlebotomies.

I've had diagnosed PTSD for 22 yrs (rated 100%, solely for ptsd) and have only taken meds twice, for it, each time for about 3 months. I believe if the meds aren't for something critical, don't take them. These days I worry about kidneys and liver. No problems, yet, but why chance it. The VA doesn't really care about us and uses meds as an easy treatment. jmo

    • 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:
