I have been reading the UCLA reports on PTSD and it's looking good!
But will it salve the probems on PTSD?

What happes to the thousands who are on claims for PTSD and NOW they can get some meds to end PTSD?
Will you claim have to be redone? Lose you income or have it cut down cause your better?
Under the VA rules YES - if you get better from your claim or claims / awards you can lose some of your money permonth and go from lets say 100% service connected to 50% if the VA says your better! Yes you willhave to be checked out again but this is what is in the works to cut VA funding is to cut awards / claims - so watch out what you do and what you say to your Dr's and what is typed in your reports as the VA can read what is going on with your health wise on every check up you go to and yes even outside Dr's must report back to the VA on your last check up!

So look out if there is a cure of some what you can and will lose a part of your awards real quick!
