Bipolar meds and D O T physical

That is what the first dot doctor made me do. I already have my medical records in hand, and have an appt with my personal dr one week before I have to report to prime. I intend to leave his office with a letter stating the facts that i am stable on the meds I am on.

Bipolar meds and D O T physical

Okay, im a little nervous. During school I went for dot physical and had to get my medical records sent to the dot dr from my dr. Now im headed to prime and will have another dot physical to go thru. Im on depakote, lexapro and abilify. Do I need to be concerned? I passed the local dot with my medical records as proof that im stable on my meds. Should I bring them with me when I report to the prime physical?

Are Prime tractors all LW trucks?

Very interested in Prime, but dont want the tractor with the smaller cab. i'm 6'4" and 280 lbs, would like all the room I can get. Is the LW truck something I would have a say so in if I choose prime?
