    Ok, so I'm kinda worried about getting into the Air Force... Anyone that can help is greatly appreciated

    On my medical record is show's I've taken:
    Adderall (Last refill was when I was 17)
    Ritalin (last refill when I was around 11)

    Prozac (last refill a few months ago)
    Wellbutrin (awhile back, for stop smoking aid)

    I was diagnosed with depression, I told my doctor that was resolved so that's no longer on my "issues" list or w/e that list is. I'm no longer listed for any medications as of right now or problems/diagnosis.

    I know those meds are "no no's" but can I have my doctor write a referal? Saying my ADHD was mis-diagnosed? Same with the prozac?

    My advice is to go talk to a recruiter. You don't have to give them your name, just tell them you're asking for advice and information.

    What do you want to do? I can see the medications being a problem for a job that needs a clearance.

    You need to be off any ADD/ADHD medication for a full 1 year before you're eligible to join.
