    Medical Pulled

    I just got a letter from the FAA that they have canceled my Medical
    due to drug interaction. I have been takeing the 2 Rx's for the last
    4 years but now they say I have to change one or the other. I have
    had my doctor change one of them to another one listed on the approved
    list. I have notified the FAA of the change. Has anyone been in a
    simular situation and know how long i can expect it to take to get in
    the air again?

    Mike, I suggest you telephone the office that originated the notice or call
    the Medical Appeals office of the Aerospace Medical Certification Division of
    the FAA in Oklahoma City, OK and request their guidance - telephone
    405/954-7675. I have heart disease and work with that office for an annual waiver
    to maintain my Third Class Medical Certificate. I had a prescription
    conflict several years ago and, as I recall, they resolved it. Also, suggest you
    confer with your AME for guidance. Stay with them and be persistent, but
    courteous, in your follow up with them. Good luck!

    Medical Pulled

    I had to get a special issuance because of Type 2
    Diabetes and Hypertension. The AME sent in the forms
    in mid March. It took over three months before the
    first reply then I had my Doc write a letter saying
    that I was no more likely to croak at the stick than
    the next fellow which took a couple of weeks then it
    took another month to get the certificate. I am sure
    that each case is different but that the FAA doesn't
    care whether you fly or not as long as it gets to take
    its own sweet time and follow its own rules will stay
    the same.

    Good luck, Willis

    Medical Pulled

    I did use the AOPA service. Their web site tells you
    not to even try until after 30 working days (6 weeks).
    I waited for a little more than 6 weeks and emailed
    them. They replied in about 2 weeks that I would soon
    get a letter from the FAA. I got the letter and it
    told me that they would act in a few weeks. The
    committee only meets every three months and they act
    on however many cases they have on hand and can get to
    in the time that they planned. The others wait until
    next time.

    I was just glad that I don't fly for a living. If I
    did, I would have been out of work for four months.
    Government agencies protect the bureaucracy above all
    other factors. It doesn't matter if it is the FAA,
    FCC, FEMA or what or whether the Democrats or
    Republicans are in power. The AOPA will try to keep
    you happy but I don't think they have any real
    influence.
