to read the comments Attorney Gordon Johnson has to say about NeuroPsych Assessments (NPA).
I would also recommend having an attorney with expertise with concussion/mTBI and NPA's counsel you and review the intentions of the NPA. The wrong battery of tests can be detrimental to your future care.
And, do not try to prepare for the NPA. If you are anxious the night before and struggle to sleep, that is OK. It will only magnify your symptoms. Do not tell the tester if you could not get a good night's sleep unless asked specifically. Only answer questions asked. Do not try to volunteer information to explain your symptoms. Let the tests speak for you.
Do your best but do not try to accentuate anything. There are validity tests that will show if you are faking.
And, try to relax and go with the flow. You will be fine.
My best to you.

Added L-Tryptophan and stopped paroxetine after 3 months of tapering. I currently take 500 mgs of L-Tryptophan AM, 500 mgs noon, and 500 mgs PM.
As of Nov 15th, Due to high stress issues resulting in PTSD, docs put me on 3 meds. Clonazepam but only for 30 days ) .125 mgs twice daily (Doc presc. .25 mgs 2x daily but half a tablet is good) , citalopram (Celexa), an SSRI , and olanzapine (Zyprexa), an atypical anti-psychotic that usually causes weight gain before bed. I lost over 30 pounds since mid July. It just stopped the weight loss. Took me off the gabapentin. I am feeling better than I have in years.
This great feeling only lasted a month. Back to the same old PCS doldrums.
May 2014, I am off the olanzapine due to a 6 fold price increase. Back on 600 mgs of gabapentin before bed.
I am also taking L-Theanine to help with GABA regulation
