  • yes. I drove a couple times under 2 weeks. As long as you feel like you can slam on the breaks if you have to and your not on any meds that can mess you up.

  • What Mel said. No meds that make you drowsy or otherwise impair your senses/reflexes, and not in enough pain to be distracted or keep you from doing necessary tasks (like slamming on brakes), then you're ok to drive.
