Medicines and Driving

11 January 2010

Drivers are being warned about the potential effects of medicines in a new THINK! campaign launched on 7 January.

One million leaflets will be distributed through 2,600 Boots stores, and medicine bags will be labelled with stickers prompting drivers to check with their doctor or pharmacist that they are safe to drive while taking their medicines.
