NICE Medicines Evidence Commentary
In July 2014 the MHRA issued information on a new offence of driving with certain medicines above specified limits in the blood.
This new offence will be enforced from 2 March 2015 in England and Wales.
The new offence does not replace any existing offences of driving whilst impaired by drugs, including licensed medicines.
Health professionals are advised to discuss this issue with people who are on medicines with potential to impair driving.
