I just renewed my medical certificate and did the usual pencil whipping. For the most part, I’ve got a clean medical record and great health. Unfortunately, I do have some undiagnosed anxiety issues from my past military service. Just wondering if anyone out there has revealed this to the coast guard, or if there are any related prescriptions that are not coast guard approved? I intend on seeking treatment soon but am worried of the repercussions to my sailing career. Thanks for any advice.
I have heard that an anxiety diagnosis, or anxiety meds, can be a big issue with the USCG.
