Can I drive when taking my prescription medications?
During your consultation, your doctor will discuss your prescribed treatments with you in detail, informing you of any driving restrictions associated with your medications. If your treatment does not contain any of the active ingredient THC, you will likely be able to drive as normal.
THC is known to have impairing effects. As such, your Polln practitioner will advise you not to drive or operate machinery while being treated with any medication containing THC. Driving with any detectable amount of THC in your system is currently a criminal offence in all states in Australia (except Tasmania), even with a prescription. THC may be detected in saliva up to a number of days after administration. If you are unsure about whether you should drive while taking your medications, reach out to the Care Team who can refer to your clinical summary or contact your doctor for further advice.
