Hi all. My doc recommended that I start taking some anxiety medication, an SSRI. I'm currently awaiting decisions from a few nursing programs I applied to.
I hope to join the Navy or AF for direct commissioning after I finish nursing school. Will being on an SSRI such as Prozac, Lexapro, Paxil, etc. prevent me from being able to join as a military nurse?
A friend of mine who is currently active tried to go from enlisted corpsman to IDC and because he/she had been prescribed an antidepressant within the past year, the package was denied. He/she was told to wait one year.
