I was charged with DWI even though I was taking medication under doctor’s order. Can they do this?

Yes, but there are a number of proper ways to handle these types of cases. Again, these demand a lawyer’s knowledge, skill and experience.

Be aware that the offense of DWI or Driving Under the Influence can be prosecuted even if you have consumed ZERO alcohol. The law states that the accused was driving while intoxicated by reason “of the introduction of alcohol, drugs, dangerous drugs or a combination thereof.” You can be arrested, tried and convicted even if the medicine you were taking was prescribed by a licensed doctor if the medicine affects your “normal mental or physical faculties.”
