New Pilot with Questions


New Member
1. I take high blood pressure meds (mavik) and (lexapro) anti depressant.
2. I am wanting to go into aviation for a career.
3. Can having a history of these meds prevent me from an aviation career?
4. Are these meds prohibited while flying for a 121 carrier?

I'm certain these meds aren't currently required for my well-being. My blood pressure/health has gotten much better, and I was skeptical about the need for an SSRI in the first place.

Thanks Doc.

Do you know if having a history with these medications ever sends up red flags to potential employers, such as the major airlines?
