While there are no medications that will automatically disqualify a Candidate from being hired as a police officer, the NYPD will carefully assess and evaluate any medication you have used. They will want to know the reasons you are/were prescribed such medication, the symptoms the medication are/were meant to address, how well the medication worked, and be given a timeline of how long you are/were taking such medication. Candidates should always be prepared to discuss any medications they are/were taking, including the name of the medication(s), the dosages and the timeline for which they were/have been prescribed such medication.
