Can I drive after taking prescription natural medicine on the Gold Coast?

The most important restriction for prescription natural medicine patients to note is that it is currently illegal to drive on the Gold Coast and Queensland with any amount of the active ingredient known for causing psychoactive effects detectable in your system, even with a valid natural medicine prescription. This means that if you are prescribed a dried herb or natural medicine that contains any of this active ingredient, you will need to wait until the medication has left your system before you drive. This law exists in all Australian states and territories, except Tasmania (nipaluna).

Remember to always pay attention to the effects you experience while taking your medication, and ensure you aren’t driving while impaired. Learn more about driving regulations here.
