Is there a list of FAA prohibited medicines/surgeries?

I'm an ATC applicant. I recently passed through PEPC without any hang-ups.

But I was a little disturbed to hear the medical folks at PEPC tick off some of the brand-name medicines that could disqualify an applicant. This is going to give me pause now if the doctor writes a prescription for whatever.

I'm thinking about getting LASIK, should I not?

I tried to look through the FAA website, but its not very well organized.

I just know that the flight surgeon opened a program on his desktop, found my medication, and OK'd it... case by case, eh?

Should I bother the flight surgeon if my dosage has changed, but not the medication itself?

I believe you are required to report dosage changes if you are in ATC.
