Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498618-Can-You-Take-Prescriptions-Boot-Camp "Welcome to the first and only episode of ""What About My Prescription?"". I'm your host Sgt. Volkin, and in this episode I'll be fielding questions from a fake audience today. Alright, thank you very much. So, what will happen if you bring your prescription medicines to Basic Training? Very easy answer. It's going to be taken away from you. If you require medication you most likely won't get passed MEPS, or the Medical Entrance Processing Station. Once you're at Basic Training and you need to obtain medicine, you can go to Sick Hall and get it there. Sick Hall's not that much fun though. If the medication is strong enough that you can overdose, you're going to have to take the medication with your Drill Sargeant, and that usually comes with contingencies like doing push-ups so that's not fun. So, let's go ahead and go to the questions from our fake audience. Question number one: ""Can I bring my birth control with me to Basic Training""? The answer is 'No' Question number two: ""Can I bring my asthma inhaler?"" The answer is 'No' In fact, you can't even get into the military with asthma, so the answer is still 'No'. Question number three: ""Can I bring my heartburn pills?"" The answer is 'No'. Another question from our fake audience is ""Can I bring my heart-worm medication?"" Not unless you're a canine and if you're a canine, you can't get into the military, so the answer is 'No'. Another question: ""Can I bring my Viagra?"" 'No', not sure why you're going to want to bring that to Basic Training anyway. Thank you for joining me on the series premier and the final episode of ""What About My Prescription?"""

Additionally, a study was conducted recently that said over 71% of Americans are ineligible to join.
followthegoldenrule4ever (1 месяц назад)
But the military doesn’t discriminate right? Lol what a joke. I’m tougher than anyone of you, but because of epilepsy I’m not allowed to serve. Disgraceful after all my entire family served, but I and many others get the boot because we were born with pre-existing conditions.
followthegoldenrule4ever (1 месяц назад)
Collin Gillespie Thank you very much for proving my point so you have them controlled with your prescription medication you still cannot join. As you said it was 6 years almost a whole decade of being seizure free. That still is not a guarantee that you will not have one. My point is that this is a national security crisis according to a February 13, 2018 report by the Heritage foundation 71% of Americans between the ages of 17 and 24 cannot join the military because of pre-existing conditions. I’m doing my best to keep strong and keep my country strong.
Collin Gillespie (1 месяц назад)
Bruh it’s not discrimination haha. My epilepsy has been gone 6 years and I have prescription meds that if I could bring I would have gone but I don’t know if I could bring those to basics. I’ve met the criteria of joining since I have been free of 6 years. However I also understand the caution they take. You are putting their life at danger joining if your epilepsy is not controlled like mine.

I have a question, so I called a recruiter and he asked if I ever took any medications, so I admitted that I took Anti anxiety medication over a year ago, but I only took them for 3 weeks, and I don't take them any more and I don't need them at all right now. Would I get disqualified for taking meds over a year ago?

What if I have blood pressure meds that were prescribed by a military doc because I am a military spouse? you didn't mention that. plus meps saw my medical read that stated my history of hypertension and the name of the medication I was taking and I was able to go to meps. I know that my meds won't be a cause a burden on the military because they are already paying for them anyways...
Briana Balderas (2 месяца назад)
My Own Kind Of Beauty did you pass meps? I’m a military spouse as well with Tricare health records.
Rebecca Roberts (1 год назад)
Inaccurate. You can bring birth control... You just need to bring a copy of your prescription.
Y Yeezyy (5 месяцев назад)
My Own Kind Of Beauty actually you cannot take thyroid medicine otherwise I would be in basic training right now it's stopping me from joining and that alone is
My Own Kind Of Beauty (1 год назад)
Rebecca Roberts yeah you sure can! You can even have thyroid meds too and you can also be on meds if you were given a medical waiver

I also have anxiety but from what i have heard you need to be off for at lest a year and in the army you need to be off for 2 years and i don’t think they can check your med history
Emily S (1 год назад)
Squad Sector- Apparently you need a waver for that. As it is difficult to enlist with any mental conditions. A recruiter may help you out, but may just do the exact opposite.

I have Restless leg syndrome which only bothers me for sleeping ( I'll stay up late but will usually fall asleep if I don't take it) so I take a prescription a couple hours before bed. Does anyone have any knowledge or know of any cases where this type of medication was allowed?
Nicholas Steiner (1 год назад)

Will they give you an inhaler in sick call?
Kris Gordon (3 года назад)
For the women asking about cramps, they will give you medication. They also have options for birth control. You cannot bring any medication whatsoever with you to basic training. If you need anything, ask for it, including a tampon.
Sean Herlihy Vids (3 года назад)

If you don't require any medications for your asthma you doctor can put that on your file and they will know that it's not active anymore. Otherwise you'll be denied.

ImaginaryXxXShadow (3 года назад)
Many people told me to not bring contacts. They said it's much better to bring glasses because the environment apparently isn't good for contacts.
EmoBurrito123 (4 года назад)
can i join if i get migraines? 
The Moon Bear (3 года назад)
+EmoBurrito123 Only if you haven't had a migraine in the past 3 years I believe is what it is. Sucks I know I'm in the same boat sort of. I am having difficulty joining because I was given an inhaler once when I was shortness of breath (allergies or something) I was never diagnosed with asthma.
Faythe Crosby (4 года назад)
Can you join the army with bad credit
Sulfen (2 года назад)
+Crystal Robinson If you can prove to them that you have made the steps to avoid future financial issues, you can. But it makes it very difficult to prove it.
Crystal Robinson (2 года назад)
Yes you can lol... ^^^^
Sulfen (3 года назад)
mbyard87 (3 года назад)
Yes you can. My credit is horrible and I'm getting in. It just limits you on certain jobs because you can't get a security clearance with bad credit.
Tommy Dew (4 года назад)
I have asthma but it hasn't cause me any problems in about 11-12years I'm now 18 does that still fuck up my chances of joining the army if so fuck my life!
Ben Woodford (3 года назад)
+Tommy Lee If you have been clear of asthma for 4 years and have no medication for it you can join.
Kalmahavak (3 года назад)
+TheMexiChannel  Just ask the recruiter to give you a medical review form to send in to MEPS. It'll take a few months (Mine took 2) but you'll get a response of whether MEPS will look at you or not. Then, you'll either be cleared, denied, or have a waiver request sent out. This usually takes about a week. Also, make sure you get your ENTIRE medical record to submit.
LuzaGunner (3 года назад)
+Andrew Holstein I got asthma when I was 6 and never had asthma attacks and I stop using medication when I was 17. In 2012 I tooked the pulmonary function test and passed (lost the doctor notes so im gonna take it again in a few weeks) Would I be able to get a waiver?
Kalmahavak (4 года назад)
+Shiloh Kingston Well it depends on what branch you join. Even if you've had asthma after 13. For instance, the Army requires you be off your Asthma meds for 1 year, and submit ALL your medical documentation to MEPS. From the date you were born, up until when you reported for recruitment. For the Air force it's 2 years, and for the Navy I believe you just have to pass a Pulmonary Function Test.
It's Shiloh, Hoe (4 года назад)
+Andrew Holstein Waiver is only possible if you haven't had an asthma set-on or issues after a certain age. Maybe like thirteen. If you run and still get weezy after age 13 then the waiver is still no good.
christina edgell (4 года назад)
I was gonna join but i have asthma like really bad :/ sucks!
Matthew lewellyn (4 года назад)
Well thats fucked what if i have mild asthma this is all ive wanted to do all my life

viagra relly?
Johnny YK (4 года назад)
seriously who bring Viagra
Will George (4 года назад)
What about headache meds?
It's Shiloh, Hoe (4 года назад)
As he said; no. If there's no underlying condition for the headaches you can join the military. If there's a medical condition why you have headaches it's probably on the disqualifying list.
shontay primm (5 лет назад)
Why can't u have asthma in the army
KaturianKaturian Katurian (3 года назад)
+shontay primm Because you're constantly exercising and they don't want anything like asthma that can cause you problems.

in case of someone as clueless as you joining them
Krill156 (5 лет назад)
It would be very bad if the person was deployed and was unable to obtain the medicine in time. Last thing i want in my unit is some one with asthma.

Awe man I have asthma
Bobbatron808 (5 лет назад)
Yep definitely won't survive the weeks of bootcamp without my daily medication.. Shit
Hol Dek (5 лет назад)
The medication is what prevents you from becoming sickly. But there's no pill for stupid or for criminal.
TheTwinkiefoot (5 лет назад)
I have sleep apnea? Can I bring my CPAP machine to OCS?
Moonlightsweetner (9 месяцев назад)
TheTwinkiefoot im not interested in joining the army but im curious bout that too cause i use a cpap. i take 12 pills already so i couldnt join even if i wanted too
Hol Dek (5 лет назад)
So, let me get this straight: they've lowered recruitment standards so much that you can now get in with a criminal record and low aptitude test results, but you can't take prescription medications?
Mikayla Pratt (6 месяцев назад)
Kapinder123 (5 лет назад)
"you can't get into the army if you have asthma" what about if you have diabetes or any life threatening disease like that?
Aaron Meadow (5 лет назад)
You can make it through with ADHD. Two of my brothers have it and both of them are in the army. One of them is a highly decorated soldier who is a qualified sniper. All you have to do is stop taking the useless medication.
Bapat Lal (5 лет назад)
How about ADHD medication?
jamestheawsome100 (5 лет назад)
I have read online that you can get into the military with athsma, but you have to be able to control it without medication, sucks for me.
Brianna J (5 лет назад)
You can join if you have asthma. But asthma has to be gone along with the medication a the age of 12 or under.
Ross Spragg (5 лет назад)
If you get clearance from a doctor or physician you can. You have to document to the recruiter that you are well enough to join.
GenBadGuy (5 лет назад)
Like Asthma, its highly unlikely they will let you into the military with ADHD.
MrAboor88 (5 лет назад)
yes. yes they are
manonfire215 (5 лет назад)
they're dogs in the military though.
U.N. Owen the Sandvich (5 лет назад)
Is it documented by a doctor?
Kuohwa Ni (5 лет назад)
you can only get a waiver if you had asthma as a kid and lieing in your application is fraudulent enlistment and is punishable by law

airsoftalex100 (5 лет назад)
Seriously they need to let people with asthma in the military it's not a huge illness in fact there are many people with asthma who are in the military I wanna join so bad but I have asthma this such. Bs
AbnormalPairRS (5 лет назад)
You can get into the Military with Asthma, my dad has a few buddies in the Army/Marine Corps that either got a waiver for it or lied about it and they've been in 10+ years.
