    Default Using Prescription Drugs While on Probation

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: PA

    I am on secured bail with probation. I am prescribed many medications. I don't abuse my meds my problem is with alcohol. I am getting foot sergury next month, and am prescribed Vicoden, and Xanax for my nerves? As long as they are prescribed is that alright. I have never been on any kind of probation before and I am clueless

    It should be fine, but you'll really need to discuss things with your PO.

    Taking one drink with prescription medication is abuse.

    Make sure you let your doctor know that your an alcoholic, and also make sure that your probation officer knows that you will be going for surgery and that the doctor may prescribe a narcotic for pain relief.

    Missy's on target. PO may require some proof that the doctor prescribed the drugs, especially if there's any kind of drug testing listed as part of your Conditions of Probation. A letter would probably suffice, but you should inform your PO and see what they say.
