Driving Under the Influence of Prescription Drugs

Pasadena DUI Defense Attorney

If you have recently been arrested for driving under the influence of a prescribed medication, you may be confused and unsure of what will happen next. As with any DUI case, you will have to schedule a hearing with the DMV to ensure that your driving privileges are not suspended. In cases such as this, many people are unaware of the dangers of driving while on medication that has been prescribed by the doctor. Additional external factors such as road visibility, weather conditions and more will also play a large role in whether the officer who pulls you over believes that you are drunk.

In cases where a person is arrested for driving under the influence of drugs, their first reaction is to question why they have been prescribed a drug that is unsafe to use while operating a vehicle. While many medications will have this written in the fine print, your doctor should very clearly advise you not to get behind the wheel of a vehicle if this medication makes it dangerous to do so. However, every person may react differently do different medications, so a prescription that is perfectly safe for one person can hold life threatening dangers to another.
