Question
Posted : March 27, 2006
I had a medical before I learned to dive. Circumstances haven't changed in the 3 years since then but I haven't been diving for 2 years. Do I need another medical before I dive this summer? It was due to the anti depressants I was then taking and the dose is still the same.
My husband has recently been put on medication for high blood pressure. Will he need a medical before diving again?

It is in the best interests for both of you to get a medical,
as you are still on the a/deps, a thorough consult is needed, and the samr for your husband as he also needs an ECG
