Effects of Over-the-Counter Medications on Driving
Almost all Americans have utilized the benefits of over-the-counter medication when facing an illness, and although this is safe, it can sometimes affect the consumer’s ability to safely operate a vehicle. Those who choose to drive regardless of the warnings associated with medicine they have taken put countless others at risk due to their impaired driving skills.

Once a person has taken certain over-the-counter medications, their ability to drive can be affected in a number of ways, including:
- Impaired motor skills, meaning the decreased ability to control the automobile
- Decreased reaction time
- Decreased ability to make clear and responsible decisions
These effects can be extremely dangerous because they may prevent the driver from adhering to safety laws and controlling their automobile. Should a medically-impaired individual cause an accident, victims may be able to hold them responsible for the cost of their losses.
