There are a significant number of medications and prescriptions that may affect your ability to drive safely. If you take medications make sure to:

  • Read the label very carefully. If the label says, “Do not use while operating heavy machinery,” do not drive when you take the medicine.
  • When your doctor prescribes you medications or if you are not sure about a particular medication, ask them how it could effect your driving.
  • Never drive after drinking alcoholic beverages or mixing drink and medications.
