I've been hired on at Stevens Trans. (new driver) and need to know what the policy in the trucking industry is on Methadone prescriptions?
I had a disk removed in my back about 4 yrs ago. got off the pain meds and got prescribed methadone for pain (also have arthritis of spine) and of course to keep me off those damn pain pills. been on for about 2 years now. have wanted to drive truck all my life and figured now would be perfect time for me.
the doctor at clinic referred me to fed regulation regarding driving truck & methadone. it says you can not...what is policy really???
thank you. really need to know.
