Most diving operations will automatically say no when it comes to unfamiliar medications for safety. It’s best if you talk with a dive doctor and ask them if they would be willing to sign a letter regarding your medication and any required limitations.

A good starting point would be to contact the Divers Alert Network, DAN, for advice.
