DOT physical after meds for mental illness
by: Hervy

The easiest thing to do would be to call the same Dr that you were at when you took the first physical and discuss with him the situation.

I assume that if you were taking meds it was prescribed by Dr. If you no longer have illness, I don't see why not taking the meds would hold you back. Having said that, it is not a response by me from first hand knowledge or research.

I am sure the details of the situation matter. We don't know the details
