Lol, I am still waiting for the VA to give me medicine that I really need. But, the VA prescription game involves taking this, then than, then this other thing, then getting approval for something else, etc... and a couple of years later might get the same med my non-VA doc would prescribe in about 5 minutes.

Guys I cant do the show but hopefully maybe you can make this point.

Some meds are a Safety Issue. The vet must take them without delay.

We had a vet here about a year ago with a frustrating med problem and was getting a big run a round from VA. The meds were to prevent seizures, He was very worried.

I gave him this link and told him to file a IG hotline complaint ,but I was not sure as to how the IG would handle it, if at all....:

http://www.va.gov/oig/

The VA IG called the VAs (2 VAMCs were involved )and then resolved this in a heartbeat and he got his Seizure meds right away.

Patient safety issues are determined by the IG.

It is often critical that some meds MUST be taken daily with no delay.

We had another vet I advised this too as well but he never returned to let us know if the IG helped him.

As a witness to a major VA medical prescription error myself, that involved 2 VA PTs,

I know a med runaround could possibly even be fatal in some cases.They could have caused the death of one of these vets and they acted like it was no big deal. Until

I went to the VAMC pharmacy office myself and raised Hell about it and then they fixed it.

And they put a nasty note about me into my c file because I raised hell.

I really got a good laugh when I read it. :lol:

Then again when you try to do the right thing, VA has a way of blaming the complainer and not acknowledging their medical error. :wacko:

(MUch like their initial BS on the Phoenix incident)

Off Label use of drugs at VA is big problem. Many anti-seizure drugs are used for mental health issues. If vets suddenly stops use of these drugs he/she can have a seizure that may result in death or brain damage. Neuronin was used for everything at the VA. This is anti-seizure med not for use for PTSD vets.
