Prozac DUI Georgia

Prozac DUI Georgia
Did you know that you could be charged with driving under the influence in Georgia if your prescription medication affects your driving ability? It’s true—if you are taking a prescription, such as Prozac, that made you a less safe driver, you could face serious DUI charges. Fortunately, a defense lawyer can help you contest your charges in an effort to avoid a criminal conviction.

Most people have heard of Prozac. It is the brand name for fluoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, panic disorders, eating disorders, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). When it's taken with alcohol or certain medications, side effects can be increased, affecting cognitive and physical abilities.

While there is a legal limit for alcohol, one does not exist for drugs. This means that if you have any amount of medication in your system, you could be charged with DUI if you were unable to drive safely. To determine if you have any drugs in your system, the officer may ask you to submit to a urine or blood test.

The penalties for a Prozac drunk driving conviction in Georgia are quite serious and include community service, large fines, probation, and even incarceration. Your insurance rates may be increased once your insurer learns about your DUI, and your license could be suspended for up to one year for a first offense. Your conviction will be reported on your criminal record, which is accessible by third parties. Unfortunately, they cannot be erased once on your record.
