Hello, my name is Sergeant Michael of the US Army.. Though I've spent over 15 months in Iraq attached to an Infantry unit. I believe there is more that the VA psychologist, and therapist have not recognized. I was diagnosed with PTSD over two years ago and have been taking a certain pills to help cope with depression and severe nightmares. The first pill is "Seroquel" and the second is "Hydroxyzine Pamoate." For people who do not know what Seroquel is; it's a anti-psychotic. When taking Seroquel on a daily basis, twice a day as recommended by my psychologist. I am able to finally sleep without having nightmares from being deployed. The other prescription drug Hydro Pamoate, does nothing but make my chest hurt every time I take it. To further inform you of my other symptoms; I'm explode not violently but out of anger very easily, I'm constantly depressed because of being a veteran with only combat experience on how to kill/hurt someone with small arms and explosives doesn't help me out at all, next I have OCD and when I don't something right the first time I want to break something immediately, then when someone doesn't see that their ******* me off bad I try to walk away, but would still be upset and angry for multiple days about something that maybe small or not small at all. I have an appointment here on the 22nd with my psychologist to explain what's been going on and what's been recently happening. I'm going to ask for Xanax here next week, because after thousands of hours reading about Xanax, I think it might be better to cope with the stress I am dealing with. Does anyone have suggestions seriously of what pill or pills that will help with my symptoms? Hopefully is doesn't make me hungry, make run into walls, and hallucinate like Seroquel does. I'm still taking Seroquel, because after all the prescriptions I have taken and being a Ginny pig for the VA. This is the only drug that makes dormant and sleep all night long and more..
