Ok so i posted a question a few days ago about how i was on meds for anixety/depression. And concerns about going to the avation doc for a class2, i forgot to include some details. The first being it was a 6month trial and I've been off meds for 2 months with no current issues. It was determined by my psychiatrist that I could go off the medication at this point 2 months ago. In my original question I made it seem like I was currently on them and plan on continuing to be on them. But I'm currently receiving no treatment for it so I'm not seeing a psychologist or a psychiatrist. I guess you can say I've graduated and i guess ilyou could say im "normal" and have no depression or anixety issues at this point. Im sure I'll have to go in for a check up with the doctor to see how im doing further down the road.

(1) The FACT is that you are required to report it on your medical application.

(2) The FACT is that an aviation medical examiners is bound by the regulations to not issue a medical certificate and to defer your application to the chief medical examiner's office for further review.

(3) The FACT is that you will be required to furnish thorough documentation regarding this situation and that you might be required to undergo further psychiatric evaluation at your own expense.

(4) The FACT is that you will have a far better chance of obtaining a medical certificate if you present your case to a private, professional aviation medical consultant so that they can advise you what to do and steer you through the somewhat lengthy and complicated process of obtaining a "special issuance" medical certificate.

(5) The FACT is that you may be required to jump through similar hoops to obtain future medical certificates. You should expect to have to go through the same application process for at least a couple of years before it is determined that you are symptom-free without medication and can obtain an unrestricted medical certificate.

(6) The FACT is that if you obtain a special issuance medical certificate, many companies would not consider hiring you as long as your medical remains in the special issuance category. That is because they would not wish to risk you losing your medical in the future.

(7) The FACT is that if you don't work through a private consultant the chance your application being denied is high. If this happens your future employment opportunists with an airline will be close to nil.

If you are an AOPA member, call the Medical Support group at AOPA and ask the best way forward. If you are not a member join AOPA or find a local consultant and get real advice! Asking here is like asking your neighbor how to overhaul your boat, he may or may not know.

Any psychological issues or use of anti-depressants need to be considered by specialists before you can pass an aviation medical.

What the results of that will be, for you, we have no way of telling you

It doesn't matter if you need your meds or not, the simple fact that you had an issue with depression will be a major red flag regardless of the details
