    Cant speak for a lot of companies but be careful with prescriptions. Companies are requiring you to sign a HIPPA release form so they have access to your medical records. My company has an banned medications list. I mentioned to my crew manager i was thinking of trying Chantix to quit smoking and he immediately told me it’s a banned medication and we can be terminated for using it. I also know people being terminated for their doctor prescribing medicine for things like blood circulation and other non-narcotic medications.
