    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?”

    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

Yes I have heard of problems with at least two of these drugs. Celexia can cause sexual problems and clonazepam can cause depression and is addictive as hell. Take clonazepam on a regular basis for 6 months and then stop suddenly and you will really feel it. Every drug has specific side effects and allegic reactions in some.

Just a warning to people taking prozac or the generic if you get it from VA. It can cause extreme weight loss. The person taking the drug doesn't notice it until they are extremeley under weight.

Some racial groups have to be wary of statins.

My neighbor started to have a bad limp-

he was given simstantin- for diabetes I think-

2 years ago the VA wanted to operate on his hips -he said no way, got a second opinion and had no reason for hip operation.

But the limp -he couldn't figure out-

He is a Native American and I told him make sure the doc knows that-

Here the VA had thought he was a South west Asian-or from Indian-

and never thought he was an American Indian- the docs told him this is why the statin caused the limp-

they switched his meds and the limp is getting better.

Anyone taking lots of different meds should make sure some dont interact with other ones-

If a SC med causes additional disability-the additional disability cam be SCed.

See I am going to argue with the doctor. What in the hell is the doctor doing giving me Clonozapam when I suffer from PTSD and MDD. Making things worse on one side to help me sleep is crazy. Ive tried before to lower the medication and I've received some bad bad migraines. Scary. I have had no real issues with Celexia. The only time I have had a problem is that Celexia with Clonzapam makes me extremely extremely tired. I take 40 Mg of Celexia and 2 Clonazapam.
