Various medications can affect both breathalizers and blood tests; such results can be challenged based on the manner in which the test was administered (ie chain of custody, process blood was collected etc), and challenged based on medications that may affect the results.

The problem is that while blood thinners may affect the results the court may determine that since the blood was thinned the person was more suspectible to having a higher BAC as well since the alcohol is processed differently.

I don't understand your statement here:
"The problem is that while blood thinners may affect the results the court may determine that since the blood was thinned the person was more suspectible to having a higher BAC as well since the alcohol is processed differently."Do you mean that the BAC being higher can be a result of the medication ? If so why can't the medication be used as a defense ?
Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 2 months ago
If a person is impaired and thay is exacerbated by prescription drugs that will not serve as a defense.Blood thinners may increase one's BAC because the blood is thinner. So it may affect the test in that one's BAC is higher in fact.https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://pubs.niaaa.nih.gov/publications/arh23-1/40-54.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjGxp_hkZfaAhVh5YMKHXgjDx8QFjATegQIBxAB&usg=AOvVaw1DiFTgMoLpzXFlkUSE2pWI

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
