President’s mandate given earlier today

BUT I still don't think this will come to fruition... But then look at how SHTF so far, by this ignorant demented moron.... For his lack of concern for what just happened with the Taliban, He should'a already been executed, along with the rest of em on the left!!

You do realize it was Trump that made the deal with the Taliban, right? For that matter, what do you think Biden should have done differently? Yes, lets advocate the execution of over half the American public. Brilliant.

Prime rider policy- meds?

Well this comment shows you are "ignorant" of Prime. Trinity to which I refered is "Trinity Health Care" located at the Prime terminal. Yes, they have a head doctor, PAs, nurses and other medical personnel. So yes, it is up to the doctors.

And yes, it is also up to the company's legal department of how much of a risk they want to take on public safety and potential lawsuits.

I am definitely ignorant of prime. That's actually pretty cool. I thought Trinity was a person. ;) I would work for Prime if I could; I tried to get hired by them a few years back. They didn't like gaps in my work history.

Disqualifying Prescription?

Ignorant? How so?

Because the drug itself isn't dangerous to take when driving. It's banned as an anti-seizure drug because people that might have seizures shouldn't be driving a truck. In fact, people with epilepsy are permanently disqualified. However, the association with an anti-seizure drug can lead to an ignorant person, that doesn't think very well, to condemn the drug. This is the kind of thing I expect from the trucking industry. A doctor that knows their patient, and knows the drug, is far more likely to be competent when assessing situation.

Disqualifying Prescription?

My question is: Will my use of Topiramate to prevent migraines disqualify me medically? Technically, the FMCSA quote says the use of an anti-seizure medication used for the prevention of seizures is disqualifying, but I'm not using it for that.

I saw a lawyer say somewhere that you can use the drug just as long as it isn't for seizures. That doesn't mean, of course, the some ignorant idiot that decides for the trucking company can't say otherwise.

Prime rider policy- meds?

Hello. Your passenger's medication is not an issue UNLESS they are narcotic/controlled substances types. Those cannot be on the truck at all. As for you, that is a different story. Prime can indeed be picky about that. The best people to ask would be Trinity at the Springfield terminal. They make those decisions. Even with a doctors note, they will reject some meds. Good luck

ADHD meds are often amphetamines, which likely are on a controlled substance list.

Also, I don't know why random ignorant people working for a trucking company get to decide what prescription drugs aren't allowed. It should be up to doctors.
