      About two years ago, i went to my doc and was diagnosed with Major Depression, (Due to Failing Grades etc). Anyway i over came that without ever visiting a psychiatrist, or every taking any medicine. Followed up with my normal follow up with doctor (regular Doc) and told him that i am very well now, dont have any depression and quite happy now, and have no worries. Can the Psych DQ me for having depression?
      Hey guys, since we are on this topic I just have a question.

      I took/sometimes still take this pill called propanolol prescribed to me by my doctor because I asked for it.
      Basically what it does is calm your nerves and makes all nervous feelings go away. I use this in job interviews and public speaking and always nail them.

      Do they look at records like that? and would that be a problem?

      Thanks.

        Due to the numerous times I've seen posts like this... I must ask... are you being serious... or are you trolling??

          If a job interview makes you nervous, wait until you have to go through an internal investigation. and you will take multiple random drug screening tests.

            Yes and yes.

            It's a non-selective beta blocker. It's not good in a brawl because in such a situation you're likely to need your adrenergic receptors fully active but it's good for calming down afterwards. If you asked for it you presumably know that actors take it to reduce stage fright, surgeons take it to reduce hand tremor, and various persons for various other reasons including PTSD. It's contraindicated for persons with airway disorders. Different people respond to it rather differently because of its complex hepatic lipometabolism.

            If a Police Officer is known to be taking beta blockers a lawyer is apt to present an expert to attest to its negative impact on memory formation after you attest to something on recollection.

            If you've taken them of your own accord for the reasons you've specified, you should stop doing that before any Police interview, and you should disclose the entire matter without flippancy.

            Good luck Sir.

              Thanks so much for your answer. It's not like I need it all the time. I only take it whenever I need to maybe like once every two months for a major event. It is like steroids for the brain. I could stop taking it now, it really isnt that important and I could blow interviews/public speeches without it, but with it makes everything two times easier.

              Thanks again, appreciate it.

              @BNWS, As stated before im legally prescribed it and I am not dependant on it, its just something I take whenever I feel like I need an extra push and it only stays in your system for a few hours.

                Not judging you just trying to give you some insight to how stressful the job can be. You used job interviews to describe a stressfull situation. I'm just letting you know that something like cross examination is far more adversarial than a job interview. Its not stress once in a while its stress everyday at a level the average citizen doesn't comprehend. Anyway I wish you the best of luck.

                  make sure to have a backup plan and not depend on the NYPD.

                  sorry... takin a page out of NYCTNT's book and going to the point.

                    Thanks I know that. NYPD has been my dream ever since I was a kid and am currently auxillary but if they're going to reject me for such a reason then I I wont give them my potential and will get a job with the Ph.D I'm currently working on that would pay much more.

                    I would take the NYPD over my Ph.D regardless of pay just because I know I'll love the job.

                      I just want to chime in and say that I don't know many PhDs that make more than a cop at top pay and sometimes even at base pay. That's not even taking benefits into account. I know you're trying to rationalize and that's fine but be realistic.

                        Dreaming is not the same as knowing -- you don't know you'll love the job -- some people do and some don't .

                        If you're on track toward an advanced degree please be assured that having it won't hurt your NYPD aspirations.

                        I suggest you not worry too much about having lawfully taken prescription medications for smart-alec self-advantageous reasons. Just grow up and become exemplary if you want to be the Police. I'm marginal in that category -- I'm too self-indulgent -- although I'm OK with being entrusted I don't much like the associated accountability.

                          Thank you for your kind words and statements.

                          @DigitalFrenchie Many starting base pay Ph.D's pay higher than a PO's top pay according to the BLS. Engineering, occupational therapy, finance, public health, business, etc etc the list goes on, But this is going way off topic so let us not go there.

                            This is getting ridiculous.

                            First, you tell us your doctor diagnosed "major depression" but apparently didn't refer you to a specialist or prescribe any medication. Now you tell us the doctor prescribed Propranolol because you "asked for it."

                            Physicians like that are known as "Doctor Feegood" until they are known as "defendant" and then "inmate."
