DOT Physical Exam Miami – Understanding Your Medication
It is critical to know how medication could make you feel and how it can impact your driving ability and routine. Many people receive a prescription and do not fully understand their medication. When your doctor writes you a prescription, it is very important to ask the six basic questions about the medication:
- Why am I taking this medication?
- How much should I take?
- When should I take it?
- How should I take it?
- What should I do if I miss a dose?
- What are the possible side effects?
If you are a commercial motor vehicle driver, you also need to know how the medication will affect your ability to drive. Receiving answers to these questions will help you gain a better understanding of how to read your prescription label(s).
Please remember to verify your name and address on the prescription label. Also, verify the prescription number, medication name, instructions on how to take the medicine, and the name of the doctor who wrote the prescription.
Most importantly, know how the medicine could make you feel and how it could affect your daily driving routine. Staying safe is an essential part of managing your health.
It is required by the state of Florida that all applicants for commercial licenses must meet certain physical requirements and successfully pass a physical exam. The CDL DOT physical exam Miami can only be performed by a certified physician.
