This message is about my husband John Bacaris who is a***% Combat Veteran from Vietnam..* years ago the VA gave him Zoloft ** mg . He was NOT depressed. They did NOT monitor him and he broke off ** molars from grinding his jaw from the Zoloft .He then had such an allergic reaction he broke out in hives and a rash all over his body! I got on line and found out that He had EVERY side effect from that awful drug! At one point JOhn did not see a car stopped dead in front of us .I yelled STOP John! Then I was able to monitor him and get him off that Zoloft! Four years later John still has not gotten his teeth fixed after they promised him they would fix his teeth with implants! I wrote a letter to the SEcretary Steven Wilkie about this awful situation. John had beautiful teeth .He wore braces ..Now he has no upper or lower molars and has to chew with his front teeth which are really badly worn down..Fast forward to this July... Johns Physiatrist at the VA who he has to see ..He also sees a combat physiatrist.. His regular physiatrist who he saw twice ..Started pushing him to take Bupropion ** mg. He told her no, no .no.. I am petrified of those drugs and I am not depressed! He told her he had a horrible experience on Zoloft ** mg and it is all over his records that he is severely allergic to Zoloft! His phyciatrist kept telling him this is different and will help you . John took the bupropion. Ten days later the unthinkable happened .. John blacked out at the wheel totalling our custom truck that JOhn took years to build .The truck was totalled . We had over **,*** in it and a lot of time and sweat.. We got *,*** from insurance.. Now Motor vehicles sent John a letter that his physiatrist at the VA needs to sign this paper saying the bupropion caused JOhn to black out from an allergic reaction . Just like the Zoloft! He went to the hospital and was fine after he immediately stopped the Bupoprian..Now the VA is lying saying that It was not the antidepressant! Everyone is passing the buck throwing John under the bus .Because of their mistake ..John has not had a ticket or an accident in ** years and now they are trying to take his license away because they are * not taking responsibility for their mistake and causing catastrophic repercussions for us. I am a cancer survivor and had a stroke last JUly .If John loses his license . We will be in a horrible situation! We need to have our driving license,s. This is the thanks our veterans get for serving their country! ?This is horrible and needs to be brought into the light All you hear is about the opioid crisis yet the VA are giving dangerous antidepressant drugs to someone who clearly has it written all over his medical records that he is allergic to Zoloft and..Antidepressants ! yEt they pushed them on him and are now throwing him under the bus for their mistake! This has been a total nightmare ..WE are asking you to do a story on this ..Thank you for your attention to this matter!
