Yes. There are sections of the DUI statute that could be charged if you take prescription drugs and they affect your ability to drive safely, or if you take prescription drugs that either aren’t prescribed to you or not taken as prescribed. When it comes to prescription medication and DUIs in Pennsylvania the prosecutors may have a hard time proving these charges beyond a reasonable doubt if you present the correct defenses. Just because you are taking a prescription medication does not mean that you are incapable of driving safely. However, some medications specifically state that you should not operate a motor vehicle or heavy equipment when using the medication and you should be extra careful when driving after taking these medications.
