Question

I am a vet 100% PTSD and 50 % hearing loss sec, My question is that my dr wants me to use an alpha stim stimulor instead of taking the meds that I cann,t tolerate, But her boss won,t approve this but it is VA approved and is being used with great sucess for deppression, Pain, aneixty and insomia. This to me seem like a win for vets other than the meds. Does anyone know about this thanks

The VA uses Veterans to test anti deppressant meds for the drug companies and have traditionally kept up with new ones unless it was using them off label.This may explain why easier to get through VA although the VA is very slow to bring in expensive meds into their formulary. Look for Medicare to go in the same direction by making expensive meds off formulary or third tier (much larger copay)

It is not a med but a device that uses electrical stimulation to release the seraton, and endorphines that the meds do without the side affects. go to the web site alpha stim 100

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
