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

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
