Unfortunately, continued use of these narcotics would indeed be grounds to continue to deny your license. You can request an administrative hearing and ask the doctor to testify as to how the dosages you are taking does not impair your ability to safely operate a vehicle and ask the administrative hearing officer to order the license be reinstated based on the medical testimony. However, this is going to be a difficult case and you will need a local attorney to represent you in the hearing and the fact you are still taking the narcotics which can impair you, would be very difficult to overcome to convince them that you can safely operate a vehicle. This would be heavily dependent upon the doctor's testimony to the administrative hearing officer.
