    DH is on 3 different meds for his anxiety. He got booted out of the rate he was in and had to pick a new one, but they didnt boot him out.

    everyone is going to have different opinions and what may or may not be FACTS on this as we've already seen from the Taylormysailor drama that unfolded here.

    well i never read that drama. I was just asking what the Navy policy itself was regarding matters like this. I dont just want opinions but I need facts unless thats different and varies depending on what meds you have to take and what your job is.

    that i am not sure of. in the end it is going depend on his rate (if he is allowed to be on meds and work) and his command.

    Like before, DH was an AC. He had to have medical clearance to be on anything stronger than motrin.

    well right now I dont think he needs to be on meds because he hasnt had any problems at work so thats good. so maybe he should just live with it as it is and not worry about it.

    If he is close to retirment and he isnt having issues at work with it, i would just leave it alone and not take the chance.

    well we just found out today that he has it but he is also super smart to and thats why he says he it doesnt seem to affect him at work. now me on the other hand thats a different story. LOL i need meds since I have been so scatter brained and disorganized in my head for the past 2 weeks. So I know I will be needing something to take.
