Prescription Drug DUI

Most people immediately associate a DUI charge with the use of alcohol. It is true, since most DUI cases involve someone allegedly driving a vehicle after having too much to drink. However, the Rosenstein Law Group has stayed at the forefront of one of the fastest growing DUI defense areas — prescription drug DUIs. In fact, our firm has helped clients in extremely complex cases where a person was charged with DUI for taking his or her own prescription medication.

Were You Arrested After Taking Any of These Prescriptions?

Most people take prescribed medications at some point in their lives, and each drug will affect each person differently. If you are reading this page, you or a loved one might have been arrested after taking:

  • Sleeping pills (the effects from the night before can linger until morning)
  • Hydrocodone (commonly known as Vicodin)
  • Percocet or OxyContin
  • Antihistamines
  • Antidepressants
  • Decongestants
  • Benzodiazepines (Valium, Ativan, Paxil, etc.)
  • Xanax (especially if mixed with alcohol)
  • Medical marijuana

Prescription drug DUIs are different from standard alcohol-related DUIs. This is why it is important to trust your case to an attorney who is well-versed in this complex area of the law. We know how to obtain the information necessary to achieve a dismissal or a reduction in our clients’ charges, as well as share only the information necessary with the state prosecutors. We will work with your doctor or other medical experts, when necessary, to help you put your case in the rear view mirror so you can move on with your life.
