It can be unsafe to drive when taking medication which impairs/affects your driving ability. It’s also against the law to drive when you’re impaired.
Substance impaired driving is a sizeable and serious problem. As a health professional you can help your patients make good choices about whether or not they’re safe to drive.
If you have a medical condition that may affect your ability to drive safely, we may need to review your condition and determine whether you can continue to drive.
