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. For these programs, I have to do a head to toe physical to ensure I'm healthy. My question is, is my doctor authorized to document this medication on the physical paperwork (if I take allow him to prescribe them) and if so, can it keep me from getting in? I don't want them to say that I'm not "stable" enough to be in their program...or something along those lines. I would venture to say that my answer is no, but I need to be sure before I make a decision. A friend of mine was denied a job because he had been RXed antidepressants a few months prior for a non-nursing related field, but still in medical none the less.
