What would you like to know about plant-based therapies or TeleGreen Medical?
TeleGreen helps by providing convenient access to qualified, experienced doctors who can assess your condition, review your current treatments, advise on whether medicinal cannabis might help and, if so, prescribe it to you and post the medication.
No. You can make a direct appointment if you wish.
You can also be referred to us by your GP, psychiatrist, pain specialist or any other speciality doctors. That can be helpful because it means we receive up to date information about your current treatment from your existing clinical team. We then communicate with them ensuring that they are aware of your treatment plan so that the care you receive is holistic.
Initial consultation is $149 and follow up appointments are $59.
*Fees may vary if you choose an in-person consultation
Currently we are telehealth only. We are looking at providing in person consultations in Sydney in the future.
Medicinal cannabis may help with chronic pain, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in cancer, spasticity from multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety or insomnia.
Plant-based therapies are an emerging field, which can benefit some patients. The Therapeutic Goods Administration has summarised the available evidence here.
All prescription medicines have side effects. The potential side effects of medicinal cannabis include:
If we prescribe plant-based therapies for you, we will monitor you carefully over the next few weeks and adjust the treatment if side effects become a problem. Side effects vary from one person to another and depending on which type of medicinal cannabis you’ve been prescribed.
It’s a doctor who does not have to apply to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) each time they prescribe medicinal cannabis to an eligible patient. They’re experienced medical cannabis practitioners who have the authority to prescribe your prescription immediately, just as you would if the prescription was for a more common product like antibiotics.
Other doctors can also prescribe medicinal cannabis, but it can take several days to get your medication. That’s because a non-authorised prescriber has to apply to the TGA on your behalf and gain their approval before they can write a script.
TeleGreen Medical is an authorised prescriber, meaning we can help you get your medication quickly if you need it.
Unfortunately plant-based therapies are not yet subsidised through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme
Ask your fund, some do subsidise medical cannabis treatments. If you need any documentation, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
