I think you would only need to do this if you are taking one of the drugs on the list recently published by the government. Tramadol is not on the list.

Though of course common sense should prevail and if you feel drowsy or disorientated from taking any drug (even regular antihistamines can do this), then you shouldn't drive.

Ah okay so I won't worry too much then. But yes I quite often say nope I'm not driving today as I don't feel up to it. It may be negative and limiting but at least it's safe!

I think it has to be the latest script, yes, but as Carol says only for those on the list. Tbh apparently this is all the same as it was before apart from now the police can test for drugs. Which is bizarre, because I didn't know any of it so to me it's all new!
