Reporter team note: “We are working on a ProPublica project and seeking any vets that took, or were given Provigil, Adderall or any “meth-type” drugs to support battle-ready states. The massive rise in veterans suicides seems to coincide with the drug side-effects warnings for these pills. Swords to Plowshares, and other organizations, have raised a flag. We are researching…. We need any data to disprove or confirm. Contact any senior editor at ProPublica, NYT or LA Times. They will know who to forward it to”

DFt-LAT/g- ProPub.

UPDATE: Another study is underway for Veterans suffering from sleep, fatigue or neurological effects. Call 1-650-724-2065 for more details
