Is Zoloft an automatic disqualifier?

    I was recently prescribed Zoloft, been on it for two months. I read that it could DQ me from enlisting, so I want to talk to my doc about getting off the meds. I have never taken any antidepressants before, and have no history of any depression or anxiety. What, if anything, is this going to do to my chances at a career in CG?

    Why would your doctor prescribe you something if you don't need it? It's going to hurt your chances. Someone will be along with the exact wording from the medical manual, which you can Google, but in general, no, we don't take people with a history of taking antidepressants.
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    I basically got prescribed them two months ago after my mom encouraged me to talk to my doctor. I was feeling down about not getting into the Academy. It's not a pattern in my life and this is the only time I felt so disappointed. I did it more to get my mom off my back. As a matter of fact, the first time I went to my doc, he didn't prescribe me anything. I had to go back and ask again, at my mom's prompting. He did not say I had a diagnosis of clinical depression. If I go and talk to my doc and get off the meds, which I think I can do with no problems, how long do I need to wait before I apply? My medical shows I have no issues at all. Is it an automatic DQ or can I get a waiver?

    You will need to wait 1 year after the date your doctor officially takes you off the medication. When your finally able to apply you will need to provide detailed documentation in regards to why you sought counseling, why you were prescribed the medication, when you were taken off, doctors evaluation, and show how you have been coping since. MEPS doctors will review and give their determination of whether your qualified or not. If they recommend a waiver then it will be up to the USCG Doctor to review everything and say yes or no.
