Will I be allowed to drive big trucks taking my daily prescription of Suboxone?
by Mark J
I take a prescription medicine called Suboxone.
It is a medicine that is for coming off of opiates. I believe that drug tests do not even check for it because it is not exactly like the opiates it's used to treat it. I have been taking it for about a year and have had no contact with any opiates.
The only thing I'm worried about is, I would like to tell my future driving school that I am taking it if it is okay and this would not be a problem.
If it would be a problem I would simply have to come off of the medication slowly to pursue my career as a trucker. Can someone tell me if taking suboxone or prescription controlled drugs is ok by law, or allowed?
Please i need an answer soon because I am a struggling father and am trying to enroll in driving school now to provide my family with a better life.
