Driving is all about concentration, co-ordination and exercising caution. Drugs and medicines can affect your ability to drive safely because taking drugs and medicines are likely to slow down your ability to react quickly, may impair your vision and cause drowsiness, could have effects like nausea and vomiting, fainting or dizziness or inability to focus or pay attention.
Before you take any medicine, make sure to read the labels or the information leaflet to find out whether it’s likely to make you drowsy or sleepy. You either avoid taking the medicine or you avoid taking the steering wheel. It is better not to drive and put others lives in jeopardy.
