Can I be a pharmacist if I take antideppresants?

I recently was disqualified from an air traffic control job soley on the basis that I take Zoloft. Since then I have been surprised to find out that a person who takes antidepressants is ineligible for a good handful of jobs. I am trying to get into pharmacy school, but before I do I want to know if I can even be a pharmacist. Thank you.

As long as the drugs don't make you unable to perform your job in a correct and professional matter, you should have no problems. They will not ask about what medications you are taking.

I would just make sure not to tell people you're on them, and you should be fine.
