Slower reaction time, acting drunk, appearing droopy -eyed, making it hard to drive or dangerous to operate machinery, increased falls and fractures, especially in the elderly, oversedation, potential for addiction and risk of falling asleep behind the wheel. Dosed correctly it can calm physical as well as psychological tension.
