    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Call your VA and talk to a patient advocate. Explain your situation and ask that they have your doctor call in a script for you at your local pharmacy to get you by until they can get your medication to you. Have a number to your local pharmacy ready. When they mail this to you, do you have to sign for it? If so, they will be able to verify that you have not received it yet and are not abusing it. They should do this for you. If they don't call your congressman's office and ask to speak to someone about Veterans issues and tell them what is happening and ask them to make a call for you.

Going to the VAMC ER for narcotic pain medicine will not work.

It's fairly routine for the VA to go pass the renewal date for pain meds. I usually get skipped a whole months supply every yr. Often recieve them a week or so late.

Withdral symptoms? Thats one of the reasons, I "refuse" to take Methadone.

Feel like your going to die? Thats not going to matter to "anyone" at the VAMC. It happens way to often to matter. Almost like it's a cost saving agenda, isn't it?

I would go to your neighborhood doctor and have him at least give me samples today. I got hooked at that with the cancer and had a helluva time getting off it, along with morphine at the same time. Tonight take a sleeping pill until morning.

I`ve been bumming Nexioum samples from local doctors while fighting VA for it. They say I have to take the 5 other generics and get a doctor`s letter after each one is prescribed saying they don`t work before I can get Nexium. Hell I can`t live without it and its all that will work.

Yes- call the patient Advocate and call the Pharmacy director too-

I went through something like this-locally- it was awful -one vet got someone elses meds-

this vet died and the other vet was given all sorts of hell by the VA-

they insisted they had mailed him his meds- he never got them and he needed them too-

Someone got your meds. WHO?

The VA accounts for meds in an inventory every day- if they dont and JHACO or the OIG finds out they get in trouble--

it is no secret that VAMC personnel have swiped meds-prescribed to vets-

doesnt happen much at all but still- get on them right away on this.

If the PT rep or Pharmacy seems lackidaisical call the VAMC Director.
