Recently, I was prescribed hydrocodone. Part of the instructions I was given (on the label, from the physician, and from the pharmacist) included not to drive while taking the medication. However, it wasn't clear (and I didn't ask at the time) how long the driving restriction applies.
- The medication label states to take no more than one pill every six hours. 6 hours?
- This drugs.com Q&A says it stays in your body 24 hours, with no citation and little explanation. 1 day?
- Should I trust my own judgment (when I no longer feel woozy)? This seems like the least safe option.
