    I recently submitted my eqip questionnaire and I had the following issue come up. When I orgininally signed up for rotc, I put down on one of my forms that I had taken one Vyvansse pill (which is like adderall) once and had no other previous drug use or prescription drug abuse. However when I came home over a break my friends told me that they had pranked me and that what I took was actually just a sugar tablet and I was ignorant and pretty dumb. With this in mind I filled out my questionairre saying I had never taken or used any drugs. After I submitted it I realized that by doing so I had created a huge discrepency. What will happen to me? I'm an ms1 and I'm freaking out.

    Well, sounds like you took it thinking it was a stimulant, so the intent was there. And saying you didn't do drugs because you were pranked sounds like a panicked excuse. Not judging, just saying. Where do you even get "sugar tablets" A capsule with the ingredient dumped and replaced with sugar? My guess is that nothing will come of it, but I am just a Mom and don't know much.

    Sugar tablets are readily available at any pharmacy. They're used by diabetics to counteract low blood sugar.

    If it comes up and you are asked to explain, you know what to say. You initially thought it was a drug and truthfully reported what you believed. Period. The second time you also reported the truth. Period. The chips fall where they may but your stand is that you reported the truth each time. As a man or woman of honor, what else could you do?

    That is great advice. If asked you should respond exactly as Spud wrote.
