  1. Hi just wandering if anyone on here can help. My whole life i've dreamt of joining the Army but during my teens went through some family and personal problems which lead to doctors prescribing a type of prozac luckily i saw what was going on and stopped taking them after a year or so. Does this mean that i cannot join the Armed Forces though?
     
  2. check the other threads on similar subjects.
     
  3. Best bet is to check the search, and, speak to your local afco. It doesn't neccesarily mean you can't join. The army docs would want to see all your med history then they make a decision. Good luck anyways.
