If you are taking any medications for anything other than the above conditions we can check if these are safe for diving with the local dive doctor.
This is necessary as some medications can become dangerous underwater.

We can only give them information submitted to us on your medical form so please understand that the dive Doctor may require a full scuba dive medical to clear you to scuba dive.
