Dr Oz: The New DUI: Medicine Causes Drunk Driving


Doctor Oz did a segment called the New DUI, which is when medications, even Over-The-Counter medications can make you a danger on the road.  Could you be making these fatal mistakes and putting yourself and others in danger?  Dr Oz was joined by Jake Newton from AAA to talk about this New DUI caused by medicine.  I have a bit of a problem calling medicine induced DUI’s “the NEW DUI” because it is not really new… these medications have always impacted people’s ability to drive and I know someone who got a ticket over a decade ago for driving after taking an OTC (Over-The-Counter) cold medication!  However, other than Dr Oz’s name for the title, the content is very helpful and can definitely help to save lives.

    Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.

    DUI means Driving Under the Influence! It soesnt nessecarily mean alcohol, it covers ANYTHING that would impair your ability! Where I live, if you have a restricition on your license to wear glasses & get pulled pver without them on, same thing~it’s endangering others on the road bcuz you’re ability to full see correctly is impaired without them!

    I think that someone is strating up something that would greatly effect almost everyone in the nation. I take medications for diabetes and high cholesteral and I also have a job that requires me to drive and I can not take public transportation. To think the economy is in bad shape now and if it becomes a law that you can not take prescription or OTC medications as almost everyone does a majority of the United States we will have problems. lets spend our time and efforts on alcohal and illegal drugs.
