I'm bipolar can i still drive a truck?

I'm bipolar and I take medication prescribed by my doctor. Is there still a chance I can drive a truck or does this disqualify me? Are there other people out there that pass a DOT physical and are trucking while being bipolar?

Question about medications and medical certification

Hi guys, I want to get into trucking in the next year or two and I have a question about the medications my doctor has me on. I've done a bit of googling on it and I haven't found these medications listed as a disqualification. One is Effexor XR (Venlafaxine), The other is Invega (Paliperidone). Does anyone have an official FMCSA list of disqualifying medications so i can check if these are listed, Or if anyone is taking these while driving letting me know would be a huge help too.
