Re: Misleading Medicince Description
It is illegal to drive impaired even when consuming your prescription level dosages. Even if ...
Prescription levels of many drugs - particularly opiates and benzos - can be sufficiently impairing to prevent safe operation of a motor vehicle at some point during the active period of the medication. Hence the warning but not an absolute prohibition on the label. When taken properly, most medications will act in a time-released manner and will not provide for such a concentration of effects that you will be unable to drive. Most people can take their prescriptions and not be so impaired, others cannot.
Now, you can always TRY to sue your pharmacy or doctor for failing to tell you these things, but I suspect that the labeling requirements are what is required by state and federal laws and that by labeling them as they did they fulfilled their legal obligation.
