A common question is when someone is prescribed medication, can they be arrested for driving while impaired by that prescription medication? And the answer is yes. Most medication that would result in some kind of impairment of your ability to drive is going to have a warning label that is going to specifically tell you that you should not be operating any machinery or motor vehicles while you are using this particular type of medication.

So even though it is prescribed, you still need to be very careful because it is still possible for the consumption of a prescribed drug as well as operation or motor vehicle to result in an arrest for driving while impaired by drugs.
