Consult your usual Doctor

Patients considering medicinal cannabis treatment should first discuss this option with their treating GP or specialist medical practitioner. Read Talking to your doctor for more information.

Patients should be aware that currently:

  • this treatment option is generally considered where other medications have proven ineffective or poorly tolerated by the patient, or where the patient is in palliative or end-of-life care.
  • TGA applications (excluding those for SAS A – palliative care) need to state if the medical practitioner making the application is the patient’s ‘usual’ doctor.

Your current treating medical practitioner should have a good understanding of your medical conditions AND access to your medical records. Information regarding your medical records may need to be submitted if an application is made to the TGA.

As medical cannabis is a relatively new healthcare treatment option for Australian doctors, some practitioners may lack experience or not be comfortable prescribing medicinal cannabis. As most medicinal cannabis products are currently not TGA-approved, the regulatory framework also imposes different and generally more challenges and time-consuming requirements than those applicable to TGA-approved and established products.

If you are visiting a new doctor, you will need to discuss with them the following information so they can consider your suitability for medical cannabis as a treatment option:

  • Previous medical history (around the condition you would like to discuss medical cannabis as a treatment)
  • Previous medications taken (for this same condition)
  • List of your current medications
  • Summary of prior medical history and diagnosis (eg high blood pressure, asthma etc)

It is recommended to bring this information to your consultation and you can request this from your current practice or medical centre.
