Hey there Purell. Here's the current Medical Manual:
It speaks specifically to anxiety disorders. It doesn't look like it's a complete disqualifier but it does mention that you have to be off treatment (including medication) for at least 24 continuous months. Maybe this is waiverable but that would be a conversation between you and the recruiter.
The DoD Medical Standards for Enlistment ( https://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/issuances/dodi/613003p.pdf?ver=2018-05-04-113917-883 ) states you must be free of symptoms and out of treatment for at least 36 months, not 24. This is the document all branches use to determine medical suitability for enlistment. Understand, too, that your recruiter is not under any obligation to apply for a waiver for you ( if this is indeed waiverable). The CG always gets more applicants than it has spots for. If your recruiter gets someone who has your skills and background, but not the waiver issue, they're likely going to go with that person. It's just one less thing busy recruiters have to deal with. Not saying this to rain on your parade, but just be sure to have a plan B in mind in the event this doesn't pan out.
