If you do not have prescription from doctor the D.O.T. or your employer give you a drug test they can terminate you or if you have an accident and they find it in your system they can charge you with D.U.I.of a controlled substance.

You shouldnt be driving period
by: Anonymous

You should never take others peoples lives into your hands like this. This is serious, why would you want to jeopardize other people who are not driving on these types of meds.

You must be depressed if you need to take these meds? Why would you even go behind the wheel depressed?

I do not feel you are rational at this point. You should first get treatment for your depression and make sure you have no long term effects from taking these meds before you ever considered taking a monster machine out there on the highway where innocent people drive.

Yes you will test positive and and if you lie on your application and say you never took meds just so you can drive, it will be found out that you have been on meds before through our mandated state reporting system of people who are under a doctors care for chronic conditions. So beware!!

If the drug test that you take is the urine drug screen and you have Lortab in your system within 72 hours, yes it will show up and if you do not do any antidepressants for at least 30 days, you will be clean...
