Doctor Shuppo: after using anesthetics and antidepressants, you should not drive
After using certain medicines, you should not drive, said doctor Olga Shuppo. Precluding driving a car drugs she listed in an interview with Izvestia.
According to her, all neuroactive drugs – anticonvulsants, anesthetics and psychotropic drugs can cause sensations similar to alcohol intoxication. “Antibiotics, glucocorticosteroids, antivirals, statins, antipsychotics, anticonvulsants, anesthetics and antidepressants can also have a certain neurotoxicity,” Schuppo explained.
According to her, bromides cause a decrease in cognitive abilities, anticonvulsants can cause suicidal thoughts, and valproates reduce the quality of a person’s working memory. “First of all, this is due to the ability of these groups of drugs to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and accumulate in the central nervous system,” the doctor concluded.
Earlier, the therapist Pavel Ramensky told at what age it can be dangerous to drive a car. According to Ramensky, after 65 years of age, driving can become dangerous due to the loss of the ability to concentrate, accumulated fatigue, slow reactions and pressure surges.
