Scotty,

You can apply for Depression as primary even though you already receive an award for PTSD.

Depression and PTSD are two separate conditions.

Regarding Depression as consequential to PTSD, the answer is yes.
Your diagnose of Depression would need to state in the report that it is directly linked to your PTSD.

Here is some Common Medical Conditions Which May Result in Whole or in Part from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and/or its Treatment:

Section C medical conditions may result in whole or in part as a direct result of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, from the treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder or the combined effects of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and its treatment.

Conditions listed in Section C of the Entitlement Considerations are only granted entitlement if the individual merits and medical evidence of the case determines a consequential relationship exists. Consultation with Medical Advisory is strongly recommended.

If it is claimed a medication required to treat Posttraumatic Stress Disorder resulted in whole, or in part, in the clinical onset or aggravation of a medical condition the following must be established:

1. The individual was receiving the medication at the time of the clinical onset or aggravation of the medical condition.

2. The medication was used for the treatment of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.

3. The medication is unlikely to be discontinued or the medication is known to have enduring effects after discontinuation.

4. The individualís medical information and the current medical literature support the medication can result in the clinical onset or aggravation of the medical condition.

5. Note: Individual medications may belong to a class, or grouping, of medications. The effects of a specific medication may vary from the grouping. The effects of the specific medication should be considered and not the effects of the group.


The list of Section C conditions is not all inclusive. Conditions, other than those listed in Section C, may be claimed to have a consequential relationship to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and / or its treatment. Other conditions may be considered for entitlement based on the individual merits and medical evidence provided for each case. Consultation with Medical Advisory is strongly recommended.


Sexual Dysfunction (e.g., Erectile Dysfunction)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Bruxism

Xerostomia

Periodic Limb Movement Disorder

Restless Leg Syndrome

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

I applied for mdd (major depressive disorder) once and was denied. Told it was part of the ptsd cookie cutter symptom thing.
