Prescription Drug Note
Posted On: Jun 16, 2014

Dear Flight Attendants:

We understand that many of you are under the care of a physician for various medical conditions.  We are asking that each of you print out this paragraph and keep on you at all times and be ready to fax to the Medical Review Officer if you take a random drug test and it comes back as a negative-safety result.  Some of these medications can be used for ADD, ADHD and thyroid conditions.  You can be on these medications if you have a prescription and under the care of a physician.  If you are seeing multiple doctors, they will each need to fill out this note stating what medications you are taking and that you are safe to fly.  All flight attendants should have a list of their safety sensitive duties posted on the AFA website so they can quickly download it as needed for their physicians.

We also are urging every flight attendant to contact a Union EAP Representative or a Grievance representative immediately if the company contacts you.  Please do not disclose anything to the company.  We will guide you with the process.  Here is a note to keep on hand at all times and if you know of someone who doesn’t check their emails…please print out a copy of this to give to them.  Thanks and fly safe!

Your Council 71 EAP/Pro Standards Committee: Dani Sydorenko, Chris Brehm, Kim Mayne-Sasser, Lisa Gallegos and Ellie Morrow. 

"I have been actively treating (name of flight attendant) for (length of time).  I have prescribed her /him(name of drug) for the treatment of (condition).  I am fully aware of her safety sensitive duties as a flight attendant.  The list of her safety sensitive duties is a part of her medical record. After a thorough review of these safety sensitive duties, I have concluded that use of this medication as I have prescribed it does not pose a significant safety risk".
