Helping a Doctor...list of medicine

I looked in the medical area, found nothing. Not many people surf that area anyway, so I thought I'd try here.
My neighbor is a General Practitioner. He has lots of patients that are pilots, and keeps hearing about a list of medicine we can and cannot take.
I can't find the list I'm looking for in the FAA site, but have seen one out there, that list each medicine individually.

Anyone have a link to that list?

The FAA does not publish such a list. They want pilots to consult their AME, not their GP or the internet about medical certification issues.

Other folks have developed broad guidelines based on the FAA's known policy and policy re. specific drugs.

Look at www.aviationmedicine.com

Also, if a medicine has been on the market for less than a year, it is not approved for pilots.
