Dear MR President:
I am a 100 percent disabled Vietnam veteran and all of my medical treatment is at the VA Hospital, Togas, Maine.
While trying to reorder my medications I was informed that my prescription of B12 had been discontenued. I was not sent a letter or phone call that I am no longer intitled to this medication.
Upon doing some research I found that this medication was stopped for all veterans. The thought of the VA is that I can buy it on the the private sector at my expense.
My question is: how that someone who has never seen me and asked about the effects of this medication has on me? I would guess that they did not even look at my medical records. If they had, they would have found that the B12 medication has made a positive difference in my PTSD. Without this medication I don’t know how it will effect my mood and actions.
I would request that this decision be reviewed and that the veterans receive the medication that they deserve.
John F Eckert II
