Each year in the United States physicians write more than 1.5 billion prescriptions for their patients. Considering this scope of drug ingestion it seems safe to assume that medication is taken by some people while they are at work. The therapeutic effects or adverse reactions of drugs may compromise safety in the workplace. Furthermore, the conditions of the job or work environment may adversely alter the expected pharmacokinetics of some agents.
