Medication and driving

AlexAmery A postat 05 iunie 2018


My current meds are Tramadol, Gabapentin and Amitriptyline, all of which I self medicate now with the GP's blessing. I have been on these for may years and have no side effects that impair my driving. These were stated at my last medical, with no issues.My main concern is that I am thinking of going for another position with a company, I know they get you to take the drug and alcohol test.I don't drink or use any recreational drugs so have no worries with that, BUT I am concerned if I will get flagged up with using Tramadol. It is after all an opiate. Does anyone know what sort of quantities you would need to take to be a problem, both for this test and the drugalyser?

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

It's illegal to drive if either;

  • you’re unfit to do so because you’re on legal or illegal drugs
  • you have certain levels of illegal drugs in your blood (even if they haven’t affected your driving)
