Re: Driving on Medication

This is a tricky one because of tolerance.A new patient on opiates should never drive as they are likely experiencing side effects and they would surely be charged with being impaired.If you have a patient that's been taking 200mgs of morphine for 5 years then they are going to have a pretty difficult time proving this person is impaired.I have heard of police staking out methadone clinics and picking off patients that come out of the clinic.....Dave
