The FAA and Antidepressants: Safer Skies Ahead?

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing a rule to allow some pilots to go on duty while taking one of four antidepressant medications. In a statement on April 2, 2010, pilots can start applying for air duty starting April 5th. Contingencies include the pilots have to be stable on the medication for the previous twelve months and the FAA will not punish pilots who have been using antidepressants secretly if they disclose such information in the next six months. Each pilot taking the drugs will have to be examined once every six months by an aviation medical examiner.
