Medication that Disqualifies

Postby pilotgary111 » Mon Oct 05, 2009 6:18 am


There are some medications that the FAA sees as automatically disqualifying for medical certification no matter how great we feel while taking it.
Some have been around for many years and are very effective.

It is a shame that the meds we take that help us feel well at the same time disqualify us from flying in any capacity. Does the FAA want us to fly even though we don't feel well? If the diagnosis doesn't disqualify you, then the meds SURELY will!

There is something terribly unjust with the system.
