The European Society of Aerospace Medicine was founded in 2006 as an umbrella organisation in the field of Aerospace Medicine. As a pan-European, independent forum, it works to promote the safety and health of all persons involved in aviation and space operations , and to coordinate European aerospace medical interests across all national and organisational boundaries.
We aim to assist the various responsible bodies in the development and harmonisation of educational activities in aerospace medicine throughout Europe, and to develop continuous information flows and dialogue between the National Aeromedical Associations, and encourage the exchange of scientific results and experience. We strive to reach a consensus which can then contribute to the scientific evidence base which should be the foundation of aeromedical decision making.

The Advisory Board of the European Society of Aerospace Medicine (ESAM) was asked to produce some guidance material to enable physicians, and aviation medical advisers to obtain the best advice concerning the use of both prescribed and non–prescribed (over-the-counter) medication.
The guidance material is designed to highlight basic principles and to emphasize ‘golden rules’ which are recommended to be observed.
The objective of this paper is to produce guidance for General Medical Practitioners, Consultant Specialists and Aeromedical Examiners (AMEs) who are dealing with medical problems occurring in commercial, military, civilian (private) pilots or Air Traffic Controllers and to assist them with the management of medication use. This is not for therapeutic reasons but to enhance the understanding of the potential risks to the safe operation of aviation and accidents in professional or private flying activities, which may occur with the use of medication.
We work together across Europe to promote the health, performance and safety of people who fly through the use of evidence science and consensus.
