Now that I am on TRT I am concerned with getting my flight physical renewed. Does anyone have experience with how the FAA medical people deal with third class medical applications while on TRT? Dr. John, you must have several patients on TRT that are pilots - how do you get the application to go through? I am told that a well worded letter must go with the application stating that the patient has no side affects that would hamper his ability as a pilot. I am also concerned about the previous anti-depressants that I was prescribed before it was properly diagnosed as a hormone issue.

Any experiences that you can relate would be really appreciated!
