Each of these Plant based products comes in a range of different doses.
Every patient will process and tolerate plant-based therapy differently and this will affect their ability to operate heavy machinery. Unfortunately, there is no way to know how each patient will process Plant based chemicals leading to measurable concentrations in the urine even after days since use. It is recommended that patients do not drive or operate machinery until they know how the medication affects them. Any concerns should be discussed with your doctor or our team of professionals who can give you more advice.
During your treatment with MiDispensary, you will be seen at regular intervals until your product reaction is stable. The standard consultation layout over a 12 month period is as follows:
- Initial nurse and doctors consultation
- 4-6 week check-up
- 3 Month check-up
- 6 Month check-up
- 12 Month check-up
Changes to this layout are common. If a change in prescription is done, you will be seen by the nurse 4 weeks following to see how you are progressing. If further change is required, this will be directed to the doctor.
We are solely a clinic currently meaning we supply patients with access to clinical staff who have experience in plant based therapy. However, we will be expanding soon.
