    Medication

    Tonite, on NG, MN said CA was on "medication" that would not qualify her to take a polygraph. What meds out there could do this?

    Not too many (according to Mike, the FBI expert on NG.) I believe he said "how many people are not on medication these days?" or something to that effect.

    They said everyone is on some medication and meds are NOT a factor to be dismissed out of the LD. This was BS excuse given by their swarmy lawyer!
    Most likely she is on the xanax too.

    The sites I found said that meds can effect a polygraph and that there are too many for them to have all been tested but in a nutshell anything that effects the things they are measuring (blood pressure, pulse, respiration, etc...) could impact the test. Anti anxiety meds are known to, tranquilizers as well, some psychotropic meds.....

    I would think anti-anxiety meds would enable you tell the truth.

    Possibly a CNS depressant, like Ativan, given sometimes for extreme anxiety.

    i know that beta-blockers, such as atenolol used for hypertension, can affect the test.

    Or at least help in the event you are not telling the truth to keep your respiration and BP steady?

    I can't say where I got the info from but it's something that takes 2 weeks to work into your system before the full affect is achieved, although I do not know the name of the med.

    I'm reading a true crime library book right now and the suspect in the case was on Buspar (anti-anxiety) and his attorney had him get off it before taking a polygraph. I figure xanax or ativan would be about the same.

    What are you saying, that she is on an Antidepressant?

    Drugs that invalidate polygraphs:

    Miltown (the drug mentioned in the above report) preceded the class of drugs best known as valium (diazepam).
