DOD Whistleblower Tells Senator Donnelly that the VA's 1st Line of Defense for PTSD is a Drug that's KNOWN for Causing Suicides & NOW that Drug is KNOWN for Causing Alzheimers.WTF.... The DOD Knew I'm in SHOCK..... Have to go to Dr's but will blog more soon.
**************told me it will cost taxpayers 300k per vet w/Alzheimers ...so the "risk management types have now concluded use of meds not sustainable. So did iGet intel that SSRI's are a leading cause of Alzheimers & Studies manipulated &/or NOT funded cause of lobbyist interference because it was OK when the Vets were killing themselves by taking SSRI's but now that it will cost the taxpayers 300K each to care for them when then get Alzheimers the govt NOW wants them off of them? Someone please reassure me I'm wrong? Also please tell your member of Congress to tell the DEA to declassify pot so the Vets have "easy access" the plant might not be the solution for ALL & it might just be a way to relieve the Vets of pain BUT something has to happen quickly. Too many lives have already been lost.
From the VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guideline for PTSD perspective, these SSRIs, as well as the SSRIs fluoxetine and paroxetine along with the serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) venlafaxine are first-line recommended treatments.
