The bottle says use before feb 2015. I just want to make sure if they find anything in my system that I will be covered. The script and bottle have my name on it of course but it was refilled feb 2014. Thanks much!
If you are prohibited from taking narcotics a prescription may not save you. Stop using. If a test is positive, they will violate you.
Not enough information is furnished to answer for certain, but assuming you have an attorney, this would be an excellent question to ask of him or her. You have not indicated whether your alcohol evaluation is for purposes of an underlying case or for reinstatement of your license. If you have any doubts about whether you should take the medication, and if you do not really need it, the best approach would be to stop.
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
Even with a prescription, a drug and alcohol assessment will show that you are using a narcotic. A dinged test may hurt you legally. Contact an attorney in your area for more information if you do not have an attorney already.
