Do you take Feminax or Solpadeine regularly?
Well, you're gonna wanna pay attention here - because both drugs contain codeine, which is detected by Gardaí during roadside drug tests under new saliva-testing facilities and could result in a failed test.
Yes, even if you've only taken the recommended dosage.
Dr Mark Murphy, chair of communications for the Irish College of General Practitioners told Independent.ie:
"Care must be taken to ensure people are not incorrectly deemed to be unfit to drive, particularly older members of society.
Our concern is over opiates and benzodiazepines which are two groups of drugs that will result in a positive test result.
About 4pc of the population are on long-term use of opiates such as Solpadeine for chronic pain and they can tolerate it and do not feel it impairs them."
