Will a Trucking School like Swift take a new student if taking controlled Blood Pressure Meds
I worked offshore for over 20 years,I have a Able Bodied Seaman ticket and a Captain licence,and have to take a Coast Guard DOT Physical every 2 years,took one May of 2016.
I been on Blood Pressure meds for over 15 years. No side effects always good readings.took up weight training and cardio this year and feel great.
The Gulf oilfield took a plummet,wages dropped,etc.etc.
Three times in my maritime career I had to go into my savings.Bottom line fed up with the instability of the oil patch.Looking to get in the trucking industry.
My question here is will a trucking company like swift for instant take a student driver that takes blood pressure medicine?I figure it's the discretion of the company that's doing the hiring.
I tried looking up information on this and could not find any answers,Anybody that has any info on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
