Why do I need to get a blood pressure reading and/or a pregnancy test?

A blood pressure reading helps our doctors make an informed decision about a your treatment options. This helps prevent safety risks and ensures you are prescribed a suitable medication.

A pregnancy test will only be requested if you meet the criteria, and your Juniper doctor will let you know if you need to take one. The reason for this is because some medications are not safe to use during pregnancy and further testing helps our doctors ensure you are prescribed a suitable and safe medication.
