    One of the topics here contained a suggestion to use a different email address to refile a corrected medexpress form. Is that wise/effective/legal?

    I really messed up my online med express filing.. I.e. for dosage on drugs taken it says I take 81 aspirin a day... I take 1 81mg. And it's that bad on all the drugs I listed. For dosage, apparently they mean how many pills not the mg. Per pill.

    I just want to make it correct, and not look like too much of an idiot when I go to ame next week. Lot of explaining to do.

    You can wait 30-60(?) days and let it expire. Or you can use a different email and fill out a fresh one and let the old one expire.

    Used to use that stuff big time during college at Texas A&M. Until I completely covered the computer monitor and couldn't see what I was typing.

    setting up more than one med-express account will cause you problems. AME can correct anything.

    Thanks... Lots to fix... Tried to do it on my phone... Maybe seeing everything on the computer monitor would have been more prudent.

    Once you do get all the way through with an accurate version, make sure to save the info as a PDF file before you press the submit button for the final time.

    Then copy that file to several spots such as Google Docs, flash drives, etc.

    Doing so will make your life muuuuch simpler when it's time for your next renewal. You can cut and paste doctor visits, meds, and other details, making the submission faster, more accurate, and reducing the chance of omission to near zero.

    I only use the new medxpress in dire situations where the pilot reports something in a 4-12 alarm way that needs better stated. For something like the OP describes, let the AME fix it.

    I just had a guy get his first medical and misspelled his last name and didn’t discover it until going out the door. We fixed that, too.
