If you are legally taking prescriptions for anxiety and what has become increasingly intrusive in our job world, we have people monitoring keystrokes, cameras, limited privileges on your own workstation to the point where you can't even set your clock, and finally monitoring our pee, I don't see the issue disclosed in private to an amenable manager. I know it can be a sticky wicket and I understand.

Now, if you are applying for something that requires using heavy machinery and there is a limit at the company as to what they believe are proper substances for safety, that is a different story.

But I'll bet around the average office workforce, those people you think are "normal", whatever that may mean, check again, they're probably on Paxil or they're kidding themselves. Depression, at least here in the US has become a large problem among males especially, I forget which newsmagazine had an article recently. The natural ego does not want to admit up to the fact that there are in fact problems. Not every workplace is as rigid as you think if you are a valuable contributor. Accomodations are made for all sorts of handicaps and challenges. There is even a start in some police forces for the allowing of SSRIs.

Anyhow, just an observation
