    I would call and talk to my Employer and set up an appointment with the Medical Staff at work or Human Resources. Go into work, take your med's. with you and ask the person in charge if they feel it is safe for you to work. In other words, put the ball in there court. Not to many employers want the liability of an employee taking narcotics while working. Take your uour union steward or a witness with you. GET IT IN WRITING! AND ALWAYS, ALWAYS, KEEP RECORDS OF EVERYTHING, MAKE COPIES.
