Hello, I recently got back my disposition on my medical wavier from USAREC G3 medical officer, as denied due to “currently prescribed ADHD medication”. The question I have is about what to due if I haven’t been prescribed this medication for over 5 months Plus and have been doing great. I do understand that I need a wavier due to the fact that I was diagnosed with ADHD in the past while in the military. Is there a process for appeals or another avenue for resubmission showing the proper documentation that I’m currently not taking this medication? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I’m not 100% positive on this, but I had to have a similar waiver for PTSD that I was diagnosed and put on meds. All I did was go to the behavioral health clinic and have them write a memorandum stating I had not been on medication and they do not recommend further dosages. I believe you can do the same thing.

The best thing you can do is contact the office that issued your disposition and ask what evaluation or letter from a physician could and would result in approval of your waiver. Then re-submit the request. This way you get it straight from the source.

Yeah.. you shouldn't have let them give you that diagnosis.. normally it's not military or VA disability rated... maybe you can be reevaluated to get the diagnosis thrown out. The two main BS diagnoses in the Army are Adult ADHD and adjustment disorder..followed by Borderline Personality disorder. Anyway they wouldn't want you to have symptoms while in the bird..can be very expensive.. they may view non medicating as non compliance for 2 years... I would become an expert on Adult ADHD and a junior Pharmacist regarding your meds.. then contact JAG or civilian Counsel.. Just be lucky they didn't give you the boot after the diagnosis... then move forward...
