A lot of those bottles have "do not operate a motor vehicle while using." And if anything happens, and you stop using, like a trucker that can't get a refill because he's out in the middle of nowhere, the side effects of not easing off can be impairing.
Depends on what the first examiner put in the database about this physical, if any. The FMCSA national registry of medical examiners has a system in it to cull out (doctor shopping). If you get an exam the examiner should place the results of that exam in the system. If for some reason you don't (pass) this exam and the examiner places the exam in the system YOU MUST disclose this first exam to the 2nd examiner. The FMCSA will actually pull the paperwork and look at it if they have a question. In fact if the 2nd examiner desires they can get this first exam paperwork (for these purposes they are NOT covered by the health care privacy laws). Some examiners put this info into the system and some don't. If it is discovered later by the FMCSA you doctore shopped they will void out that 2nd exam. This article is from 2014 but it covers most this. It is mostly about sleep apnea, but the concepts apply to all aspects of going to a 2nd examiner.
