Effexor DUI Georgia
Effexor is a prescription medication in the selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SSNRIs) group that is used to treat depression, anxiety, and panic disorders. The effects of it can be increased if taken with alcohol, thus affecting your driving ability.
Georgia’s drug laws make it a crime to operate a vehicle with any amount of drugs, in your system if they make you a less safe driver. To secure a guilty verdict, the prosecution may call the arresting officer to the stand to describe your pattern abilities as well as your actions and behavior during the traffic stop.
A blood or urine test may be used to look for medications and other substances if a person is suspected of driving under the influence of drugs. A drug recognition expert may also meet with the suspect to determine if he or she has been using drugs.
The penalties for a DUI charge in Georgia could include probation, community service, expensive fines, and incarceration—all for taking a medication that was prescribed by your doctor! Your license may also be suspended and your insurance premiums could substantially increase.
