I’m applying for the Army HPSP scholarship for dental school, and I had previously taken Adderall for ADHD. I told my Physician to not fill it anymore, but from what I’ve read, you need to be off of it for a year. I haven’t been taking it for about 3 months. Can MEPS check the current or past prescription drugs you’ve taken? I’ve read different posts where people say to just not state you’ve had ADHD and that you’re not taking medications, but isn’t MEPS able to check the RX history through your license? Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

Do you really want to start your time off by lying to the government? Consider that you may need the medication to get through dental school. Apply for a waiver.
