Even legal drugs that have been prescribed by your doctor can impair your ability to drive. Unfortunately, even though many medications include warning labels, it can be difficult to predict a drug’s effect on your driving ability – especially if it is something you haven’t taken before or if there is a drug interaction with another medication you take. Many drivers are surprised to learn that they can be arrested for a DUI in Arizona after taking legally prescribed drugs – and even some medications that are available over the counter.
