In brief: When safe

Driving should wait until it is safe.
Use of narcotic pain medicine affects driving and you should be not taking it if driving. You need to be able to control your car without pain or drugs interfering with driving. You should not endanger yourself, your passengers, pedestrians or other vehicles.
