It might be a concern if the person was just beginning therapy and was not used to the drug (and its interactions upon his own body), or had the prescription changed. But as a rule, many tens of thousands of people drive perfectly fine while on anti-depressants every day.
I find it interesting that the man's work from five years earlier was a factor in dropping criminal charges unrelated to his previous work. Strange indeed.
I don't know the particulars of CPL ยง170.40, so the judge may be correct. I bet it's appealed, however.
