Zoloft DUI Georgia

Zoloft DUI Georgia
Zoloft is a popular prescription medication used to treat a variety of conditions. What many people don’t realize is that you can be charged with driving under the influence in Georgia for taking prescription medication if it affects your ability to safely operate a vehicle. If you find yourself facing Zoloft DUI charges in Georgia, you should speak with a highly qualified defense attorney at Head, Thomas, Webb and Willis today for help fighting your case.

Zoloft is the brand name for sertraline, which is in the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) drug class. Though available only by prescription, it is not a controlled drug. It is often prescribed to treat depression, panic disorder, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Taking Zoloft with other medications could intensify its effects.

The punishment for a Zoloft DUI conviction is the same as for alcohoI. Incarceration, probation, fines, community service, and a driver’s license suspension are all potential penalties. With a DUI conviction on your driving record, your insurance premiums could significantly increase. With a drug conviction on your criminal record, your current employment and future employment opportunities may be negatively affected.

During a drinking and driving case, the prosecution can use your blood alcohol content (BAC) as evidence against you. During a drinking and driving case, however, the prosecutor will more than likely have to rely on the arresting officer’s testimony. The officer may cite your driving, behavior, and appearance as evidence of impaired driving. Your defense attorney can challenge the officer’s allegations that you were under the influence of prescriptions drugs.
