I have used it since 1995 with good results. Its a miracle for neurpopathy and I think it helped fepression and panic attacks also.

I saw a news article relating this drug to suicide and attempted suicide.

I know the VA prescribes this medicine.

I know that drugs work in different way for different people. My daughter is bi-polar and took Neurtontin and did the sucide thing. She took the whole bottle. She was rushed to the emergency room and was given tons of charcoal. Her blood pressure went down to nothing.

She was finally stabilized, but spend the night in ICU. She was then transferred to a mental hospital for a weeks visit with shock treatments and other medications. She was immediately taking off Neurontin and doing well with her other medications.

I don't mean to say that anyone taking Neurontin will try to commit sucide, but wanted you to know that it has happened.

Josephine, I am sorry to hear that. Your case is difficult. Hang in there. By the way, The Attorneys are having a filed day with this activity. Just do a Neurontin search. I do wish you the best of luck and I will say a prayer for your daughter.

Thanks"jstacy", my daugher is out of the woods now, but I am glad that you posted the issue of Neurontin, as it is not a safe drug for everyone.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    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.

    employment 2.jpeg
