It seems more and more people are out of the closet about their meds prescriptions; I’ve already mentioned my relationships with Paxil and Effexor, I believe.
Just seeking people’s experiences here: If you’re on antidepressant meds, AND you’ve ever had to take a drug test for a job, what happened?
Did you (a) list the antidepressant on the list of medicines you take, that they make you fill out?
(a)(1) Did you then get, or not get, the job?
(b) Did you not admit to taking the medication, and then,
(b)(1) Did you get caught? Did the medication show up on the drug screen?
I’ve heard that Effexor can test positive as PCP. :eek: I don’t want to lie and be caught, but I also don’t want to announce to every potential employer, “I’m emotionally unstable.” (Let them find that out on their own. )
