Driving under the influence of carisoprodol


Many people frequently drive cars, operate heavy machinery, while under the influence of prescription medications, even though it is clearly labeled they must not do so. Depending on the injury being treated, perhaps it would be beneficial to use a natural treatment for muscle relaxation rather than rely on such a potent drug such as carisoprodol.

When there is a desire to use a natural treatment, people still need to consult with their healthcare provider. This includes those treatments taken by mouth and applied to the skin/muscles. For example, the natural herb valerian or valerian root may cause drowsiness. Another example, a hot pack may lead to discomfort while driving or operating heavy machinery.

People also need to read the labels for Over The Counter medicine and therapies. Some of these will tell the consumer not to drive or operate heavy machinery. If the consumer has trouble understanding the labels, the consumer should consult the pharmacist or the professional on staff. Many products list a toll-free number and website that can be contacted. There are also some general public consumer hotlines and websites that can be contacted.
