Pilots and Meds
Audience discussion of

       42% of pilots in fatal crashes had some sort of drug/medication in their systems during the flight.

       In the United States, 65% of visits to medical doctors result in the writing of a prescription.

       Some of these medications carry very specific warnings against operating machinery or motor vehicles or performing tasks requiring alertness. Flying certainly is included, even in a glider or hot-air balloon.  

       Illicit drugs always impair human performance.

       Healthcare providers may prescribe drugs that could compromise pilots abilities  especially if the doctor is not aware that the patient is a pilot.

       Combinations of prescription and OTC medications can be particularly dangerous.  Pilots should consult their AME before taking a combination of medications.

       Adverse reactions can also occur between prescribed or OTC medications and certain foods, beverages, and dietary supplements. 

       AMEs are trained to advise pilots on negative and positive effects of drugs with respect to aviation.

       Pilots must truthfully report all medical conditions and drug use on their medical application forms and should consult their AME with respect to all medical conditions and drug use before flight.
