Wisconsin drivers taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs may not be immediately aware of the risks they take if they keep on driving as usual.
At the first signs of blurred vision, fainting, inability to focus, slow reactions, dizziness or drowsiness you must reconsider your driving plans to avoid causing and being hurt in a serious car accident. The medication may be the right one to heal or still the pain, but its side effects are probably hampering your driving capacity just as much as a large dose of alcohol would do.
Older adults and weaker individuals react poorly to the side effects of a drug. Since elderly people frequently take more medications than other age groups, the combination of different side effects is likely to impair them greatly.
Talk to your doctor
Most people will not give up driving without a fight. Driving is essential in many ways: to meet people, to work, to shop, and other daily needs. This does not mean that a choice is always between driving and healing. A conversation with a trusted doctor can clear the way and adjust the type and combination of medicine you take, the timing and dose, all the while suggesting that you rely more on better nutrition or more exercise to still the pain and recover faster.
If the drugs you take have negative effects on your driving ability and you cannot stop taking them, consider alternative means of transportation: taxi cabs, rides with relatives, shuttles and buses, public transportation and walking.
