SFAS eligibility with medication

Hey gentlemen, have a quick question. I’m currently an E5 11b in the NG looking to drop my packet for 19th group. With that being said, I’m on two daily medications that the Army knows about (one was actually prescribed while on AD).

The first is an antidepressant (SSRI) that I was placed on while recovering in Walter Reed from a TBI back in 2010. Wish I never was placed on them, I’ve tried to come off twice with medical supervision and the withdrawals were horrendous. Worse than the opiate withdrawals while clearing WRAMC, a reason why I take nothing stronger than Advil. The second is Androgel which I take for hypogonadism. Does anyone know if this is a DQ for SF? I contacted an officer up at medical and she stated that her understanding was I cleared PHA so medically I should be good to go, however I haven’t had that confirmed with anyone in 19th’s CoC. If that’s the case, do they allow medication at SFAS? Thanks for any help you guys can give me.
