    Yea it is a bit confusing.

    I'll stand by my earlier advice ---------------------if it doesn't apply to you don't worry about it.



    The truth will come out at some point...............................that is what investigations, academy, & FTO is all about.

    I'm slightly confused by this thread as well.

    Many references to using meds (even over the counter) to try to cheat a CVSA/Poly.

    I will say that it's so confusing that it's possible the OP is being misinterpreted (just trying to be fair); i.e. he has issues with pollen and uses over the counter meds on occasion. Nothing wrong with that.

    If this is beyond that, then yeah, this is some cheating BS, and we don't really need to worry about it since the CVSA/Poly will SHOW deception.

    Really nothing more to add to this thread. It's one of two things, and the BI will soon know which.

    Edit: Wow, I just reread what I wrote up there and it came out completely wrong, which is now why I see why you asked that question. I just meant would it be worth it to take an anxiety reliever or just forget it and move on?

    Thanks for your response.

    Thanks for the response Iowa----I won't worry about it then. Thanks for the response.

    LINY, thank you for your input, I would imagine that it is the same as New York.

    Thank you everyone for your replies.
    B.S. You said it in my above quoted statement of yours. Which leads me to believe you have taken them before and don't have a prescription which makes however you acquired them a felony, not to mention a severe lack of good judgement for what I just said and for trying to cheat the test. This makes me believe you are deceptive which is an integrity issue and is why I am being so blunt!

    Uhm, that's called trying to cheat the test, and if that's the deal you don't need to be anywhere near LE.

    As someone who went through the same process, I hope I can offer some insight. In NY, Civil Service exams only need to be given for competitive Civil Service positions. Auxiliary Police Officers are Civil Service positions (once again, in NY at least), but it's not a competitive process or position. I imagine it's the same for Ohio the way you described it and it's nothing to worry about.

    Remember, dress for success too. This means being in a suit and tie every time you meet with someone from the Department until you're hired. If you have any more questions, PM me.

    You will have enough worries dealing with all the other crap involved with the hiring process.

    Again thanks for your time.
    What anxiety relievers were you talking about?

If you do take a prescribed med, it would probably be in your best interest to inform the examiner. Take the test. Don't try to beat it.

    Agreed


    Also ------------if you have taken any OTC meds within the last week------------------let the examiner know before the test starts. They will appreciate the heads up.

    What meds do you take?
