If you are taking your medicine as directed and your driving is not impaired, then you are not breaking the law.

To find out more ask your doctor or a member of the pharmacy team.

For further information see Drugs and driving: the law on gov.uk

Drowning

Children need to be supervised in and around water constantly. Being in an environment where there are lots of adults or other children present, or adults are under the influence of drugs/alcohol can create a false sense of security when, in fact, children are at risk of not being supervised at all.
