This should be prefectly fine since you can't take guns on planes. If you read some of the reports of side effects experienced from Lexapro and some of the others which will be allowed, "gun shot wound" showed up frequently, although I never noticed that as a side effect on the bottle.

I wonder how they came about selecting the OK four? Change just one letter and you get FAA...FDA. Not Surprising. Why would they change the ban now when there has never been a problem in the past? One of the side effects of these drugs is "suicidal ideation" The reason there has never been a problem is that the pilots currently on anti-depressants have been able to hide it, so it is not affecting them. Why put more people on them and take the risk of them experiencing side effects? Why do they only have to see a psychiatrist every six months when you have to renew the prescription every 30 days? I guess they are counting on the primary care physicians to diagnose mental illneses?
