Am I a Safe Driver on Psychiatric Medications?


MIA Blogger Monica Cassani reviews the growing scientific evidence about the dangers of driving while under the influence of prescription psychiatric medications on her blog Beyond Meds. She also discusses her own experiences and how her perspectives have changed over the years. “Being that I was on a cocktail of 5 different sedating drugs, I was an accident waiting to happen for many years. Thank god I never hurt anyone,” writes Cassani. Yet at the same time, she recognizes the importance of driving to many people who take psychiatric medications. “Not being able to drive is tantamount to losing freedom.”
