DUI Remeron Georgia

DUI Remeron Georgia
Many Georgia residents who regularly take prescribed medications, such as Remeron, have no idea that they can be charged with driving under the influence if their medications compromise their driving abilities. When an officer believes that a driver is under the influence of drugs, a urine or blood test may be ordered. You can be charged with a DUI offense no matter the amount of drugs, legal or illegal, in your system. If you were placed under arrest after taking Remeron, a lawyer can take on your case to increase your chances of avoiding a conviction.

Remeron is the brand name for mirtazapine, a tetracyclic antidepressant. The medication works by increasing the norepinephrine and serotonin activity in the brain to elevate a person’s mood. Remeron is not a controlled substance, but can be obtained only by a doctor’s prescription. It is known to impair thinking and reactions, and alcohol and other substances can intensify the effects.

In Georgia, a drug arrest can be made even if a person has a prescription for the medication in his or her system. The only thing needed to charge someone with DUI is evidence that his or her driving was less safe at the time before arrest. Often, the prosecution will call the arresting officer to the witness stand to describe your driving patters as well as appearance and behavior during the traffic stop. If you met with a drug recognition expert (a specialized officer who is trained to notice the affects of drug use), he or she may also be called on to testify.
