I am currently in the Ohio Army National Guard; I joined in May of 2005. I completed Basic training and AIT already with no problems. In February 2007 I started taking the medication Concerta for ADD. Prior to that I had no problems in the military. My guard unit had no problem with it, I enrolled in ROTC at the University of Akron, school has started already and I am in the junior level ROTC class. So the first week I find out that I need a waiver because I am on the medication. Now I have never took any medication in high school and still performed to the Army standards. The waiver should be submitted in a few days. I never had any discipline issues with the military and the civilian life prior to taking the medication in 2007. My question is what are the chances of that waiver getting approved?
