A Candidate will not be automatically disqualified from being hired as a police officer by the NYPD because they have taken certain medications. However, like psychotherapy, the NYPD will carefully assess and closely evaluate a candidate’s use of any medication. The NYPD will want to know, in full detail, the reasons why the Candidate was prescribed the medication, the symptoms the medication was meant to address, how the candidate did while on the medication, and the length of time the candidate took the medication. As always, candidates should be fully prepared to disclose the name of the medication, as well as the dosage and length of time if was prescribed.
