Prescription Drug DUI Charges

Some Tampa, Florida drivers may be shocked to hear that they can be arrested and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) for driving with prescription drugs in their systems, even if the medication was lawfully prescribed. A driver may face DUI charges for operating a vehicle while with an unlawful blood alcohol concentration, which is the most common type of DUI case that comes to mind when one considers driving under the influence.

However, a driver may also face DUI charges for operating a motor vehicle while his or her abilities are impaired by alcohol or a controlled substance. A prescription drug, just like an illegal drug, may qualify as a controlled substance, and a driver whose abilities are impaired by a prescription drug like Vicodin, Xanax or Ambien may therefore face criminal charges if pulled over, tested and arrested.

Fighting prescription drug DUI charges requires an attorney with a considerable amount of knowledge and resources related to these specific cases. At Thomas & Paulk, you can see by our case results and more than two decades of experience that we are well prepared to handle your case.
