T-Bird, I tried Celexa for my first dep. med. It worked pretty good, but really made me lethargic. I then went to Welbutrin but that made me very excited and anxious. I'm now on Prozac and it seemed to do okay at first but I've been on it for 9 months now, and think I may need to try the Celexa again. The prozac just isn't cutting it anymore.

wow, celexa makes me more energetic, strange isn't it how a drug effects different folks differently, i was on prozac for a lot of years and it just seemed to quit working. you just have to make your doc try different things till you find the right one for your body chemistry.

Hi...I've been on celexa, wllbutrin and lexapro. I've found combinig meds works ay different levels, because your body and mind don't just have one proble...I wouldn't expect one pill to heklp ease all of your symptoms. I too tried them alone but everyone has complex issues. I now take celexa and wellbutrin...they kind of counter act each others side affects. I felt too lethargic solely on celexa...too hyper on wellbutrin...like i had 10 cups of coffee at once. Together they seem to do pretty well for the clearity of my mind and energy.l Also, I think some meds just do they best they can so perhaps they help you some of the way...another the rest. Don't give up the fight!

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • 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
