Over-the-Counter Drugs and Driving
Most people do not think about much before taking an over-the-counter the drug they picked up at a local pharmacy. There is often an enormous amount of small writing listed on most of these medications. Some even have an extra flap for continued information on the potential side effects the medication may have. But before you take a cold and flu med, stop and think about what you have to do that day. These medications can have serious, mind altering side effects. Just because it is over-the-counter does not mean that it is not potentially dangerous.
The most dangerous threat that certain over-the-counter medications hold is that they may make users unfit drivers. Being under the influence of certain over-the-counter medications can result in deadly car accidents.
