Hi everyone, I am new to this site so please bear with me LOL. I have a very serious question. I am currently in school finishing my prereqs to apply to a nursing school in Chicago. Unfortunately I have just been given a prescription for paxil to deal with depression and anxiety. I am very hesitant on taking them at the risk of never being allowed to attend or get my liscense for nursing. Anyone know if this will affect my future as a nurse. I know medical background checks are done at some point and I an frightened to death that because of my situation, my plans to ever become a nurse are ruined. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
