We have a problem...
I have a problem I need help with as soon as possible.  This year my husband was in a near fatal accident. He was hit head on by a van and he was driving an ATV. He suffered 5 broken ribs, a busted spleen, internal bleeding, muscle tears, bruised kidneys, lungs, and liver. He had 5 beers throughout the day, his last one was at 6 pm. He was struck t 8:04 pm. He was given two separate medications in the ambulance and life flight, taken to the hospital, given more medication and THEN his blood was drawn showing his BAC as .094. Now,9 months later he is being faced with a DUI. (He was honestly not drunk nor "buzzed") Is there any particular drugs that can cause a higher than normal or false positive BAC? Please any professional input would be very much appreciated as soon as possible. Thank you.

First off I am sorry to hear about your husband, hope he is doing well.....I am not sure though.. sorry... it seems weird to get a DUI 9 months later.  I can tell you with some people you can clear a DUI (if it is his first) with classes. I've had a few friends who got some DUIs. had to take a few months of classes.. they aren't cheap, but better than having a dui on record... Not sure if us anxiety people can help to much here.

I looked around the Communities on MedHelp and the only one I found that looks like it might have some expertise regarding DUI and alcohol/medication interactions.

With alcohol laws on driving so strict now, one beer can put you over.  Five beers, even throughout the day?  Probably over most state's limits nowadays.  It doesn't matter if someone is actually impaired or not, it's just having the alcohol in the system and driving that's against the law.
