Medicines and the medical

(Originally posted this in the PQO / RAMC forum, but thought it might be better here).

I am a prospective applicant to the RAMC. In civvy street, I am a urological specialist registrar (3 or 4 years from being a Consultant Urological Surgeon). My medical is in a month's time.

Reading through other threads along a similar vein, it seems that being on prescription medication per se might make you "unfit" to join. Those threads really discuss anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs, though. I am on a lipid-lowering statin as I have fatty liver disease (too much good living, I suspect). This is no way affects my daily life, my ability to perform physically or mentally, or puts me at increased risk of future death. Would it automatically disqualify me?

Thanks for any advice,


Edit - By "future death" I meant premature death. We obviously all have the same odds on dying sometime.
