Does having a diagnosed anxiety disorder that requires, but is well managed by, medication, generally disqualify you from consideration for a Peace Corps post?

I would like to begin the application but I currently suffer from an anxiety disorder that is controlled by ativan. I'm nearly certain that actually being in the Peace Corps would eliminate a good percentage of the triggers for my more severe anxiety, but if it's a straight up disqualifier then I don't want to waste the time applying. Obviously I assume access to my medication in a remote part of the world for 2 years might be the biggest challenge but let's put that aside for the moment.
