Can I get a DUI from taking my prescription medication?

Return to FAQ Videos


Absolutely you can get a DUI in Florida for taking your prescription medication. DUI can be proven in the state of Florida if you’re under the influence of any chemical or controlled substance to the extent that what’s called your normal faculties are impaired. So even though you’re prescribed the medication, if that medication is impairing your ability to walk, talk, judge distances, anything like that and the state can prove that you’re impaired even though it’s your prescription medication, you can be arrested and convicted of DUI in the state of Florida.
