General NATOPS (OPNAVINST 3710, Chapter 8.3.2.5) includes the following statements on medications:

Taking drugs prescribed by competent medical authority shall be considered sufficient cause for recommendation of grounding unless their use is specifically approved by a flight surgeon, or a waiver for specific drug use has been granted by BUPERS of the Commandant of the Marine Corps

Because of the possibility of adverse side effects and unpredictable reactions, the use of over-the-counter drugs by flight personnel is prohibited unless specifically approved by a flight surgeon.

In general, all medications require temporary grounding unless specifically described here as NCD for flight duties.
