Automatic Disqualification from Military for RX?
Like this post? Yes | No    

Hello everyone,
Just wanted to let people know...
I went to a psychologist to just talk about life issues, going to school, rough patches such as breakups etc. Anyhoo he prescribed me several meds, but neither of us thought I truly needed them but figured they wouldn't hurt...


So Now I tried joining the military and found out

Automatic Disqualification for RX from doctor or any history of counciling

If you plan on joining the military or any government jobs it'll be almost impossible if you see a psychologist and especially if you get RX'd.

I wish my Doc had told me that before he said "it couldn't hurt"

That isn't why they disqualified you. The military is far too desperate for people. Everyone in America has had a rX for something. As far as a history of counseling, I also sincerely doubt that. Are you telling me someone who was counseled for being sexually abused at age 12 couldn't serve the military? If it sounds like BS, it probably is. Who told you this?

I believe adforester is correct. I almost joined the National Guard one time when I was fed up with life. I had to sign a medical records release form. If you are on any medications for depression or anxiety they will question it and most likely not let you enlist.

I'm sort of happy they might not be handing out guns to manic depressives.

If you were prescribed meds you did not need,that's an error on the doctor,not you.If you really want to join maybe a second opinion would be a good idea.

once more, the squirrel king speak with un-forked tounge!

i was a psychotherapist for almost 17 years.
i live in "military city u.s.a." (san antonio, texas.)
there are so damn many "crazies" in the military, who should be given a medical discharge, and disablity benefits.
my brother was what would be called today borderline personality disorder yet, during the vietnamese civil war, the goddamn marine corps took him EVEN WITH HIS DOCUMENTED MEDICAL/PSYCHIATRIC HISTORY!
one year later in vietnam, he married three different women, fathered my niece, beat the living shit out of his c.o. and, eat his motherfucking rifle.
this was all back when the u.s.a. government still had a draft.
he did crazy shit like that even before he was in the marines!
one hell of a lot of arrests, one hell of a lot of different drugs (both legal and illegal) and, one hell of a lot of hospitalizations as well!
whoever was the team of screeners, from the marines, who accepted him... TALK ABOUT PETER'S PRINICIPLE IN SUPER ACTION!

yeah, the op is full of bullshit!
the policy is, that the military IS NOT to accept any "sickies."
policy is one thing, what really happen behind the scine is something else.
from your opening post, it sounds like scapegoating because, the real reason you were rejected was, more then likely, you did not have the knowledge or, skill to play the interview game... that is the real reason you got screened out.

go dig up a copy of the book "sweaty palms: the neglected art of interviewing."
better luck next time!

..

I never had any long term care before i joined the army, but i was a high school drop out, I did drugs, I had a minor juvie criminal record, i visited a psychologist every couple months cause I was a high school drop out, they didnt do that medication thing in 1980's... I was prescribed medication while in the army for sleep, and pain..
I dont get any psych treatments now, though Im sure I should lol.. but Im cool... I dont need them telling me what they think I might be and bringing up suppressed memories...
