Taking medication to treat asthma, arthritis, or gastric reflux? AOPA has updated its database of medications that the FAA allows and prohibits pilots to take if they will be operating an aircraft. AOPA's medical specialists confirm each drug with the FAA Aerospace Medical Certification Division before listing it in the database. Recently added to the database are the following medications for these ailments: Clinoril, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory for arthritis; Asmanex for asthma; Travatan to reduce inner eye pressure caused by glaucoma; Zegerid for gastric reflux disease; and Triglide to lower blood cholesterol. The FAA does not allow Ditropan or Ditropan XL, which is used to treat bladder spasms. Search AOPA's database to see if you are taking any medication that the FAA prohibits. You also can find out by completing AOPA's TurboMedical online.
