Driver and medication
It is known that driving after alcohol is prohibited by law. At the same time, many drivers take some medicine, and then get behind the wheel of a car. Is such calm always justified? Of course, most painkillers (aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid, analgin, etc.) have been used in domestic medicine for a long time and have earned popularity and credibility..
However, some combination preparations of the latest formation may contain components that are contraindicated for those who are going to drive. We are talking about drugs of the narcotic and psychotropic series: tranquilizers, sleeping pills, anticonvulsants, sedatives, some painkillers.
These drugs should not be taken before the trip, as they contribute to drowsiness, lethargy, dizziness, decreased attention and speed of reaction..
Each of these symptoms dictates the need to abandon the trip while driving. Both a professional driver and an amateur should remember this. How can I find out about the side properties of medicines? To do this, read the brief annotation in the medical guide.
As a rule, when describing such drugs in the directories of medicines indicate: “. during treatment with the drug, it is not recommended to engage in activities that require concentration (driving a car, managing complex machines and mechanisms) ”or“. you should not take the drug during work, for drivers of vehicles and people of other professions associated with the need for rapid mental and motor reactions.
