    Hi. :)

    I have a history of being on anti-depressants for 10 months (due to breaking up with my then-fiance). I am being weaned off of them with medical supervision and am hoping to join the Navy. I have read that waivers have a higher chance of being approved if you are off of medication for at least a year after you stop taking it... is this true?

    I'm essentially wondering if I have a high likelihood of my waiver being approved if my dr agrees that I am medically fit, and since I took the medicine for less than a year, and it was for a situational event.
