Cholesterol is a fat-like substance in the body. It is produced by your body and also found in food. While it is needed for good health, too much cholesterol can damage your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease.
It’s important to get a blood test and regular Heart Health check-ups. We can help you manage cholesterol to improve your health.
Although some cholesterol is needed for your body to function, too much cholesterol can lead to health problems. The extra low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol builds up in the walls of the arteries, forming plaques. Plaques can block your arteries, making it harder for blood to flow through. This causes the vessels to narrow and they can eventually become blocked. This can lead to heart disease and stroke.
Lifestyle changes such as exercising and eating a healthy diet are the first line of defense against high cholesterol. However, if you’ve made these important lifestyle changes and your cholesterol levels remain high, a doctor may recommend medication. High blood cholesterol levels often have a genetic component. Some people inherit altered genes that cause high cholesterol.
InstantScripts is a secure online digital healthcare platform that makes managing your health easy, affordable and efficient.
We offer prescriptions for customers after they complete a short digital consultation with an Australian doctor. Once the digital consultation is completed, the answers are quickly reviewed by our registered doctors and, if approved, a prescription is issued in minutes.
InstantScripts also offers one day or multiple day medical certificates if you are unable to work. Blood tests and personalised healthcare programs are also available all from the convenience of your home.
Once you have completed a digital or Telehealth consultation for your selected medication, your prescription request will be reviewed by one of our Australian registered doctors. If a prescription is approved, it will be emailed to your local pharmacy of choice, allowing you to pick up your prescription medication in minutes. A QR code for the medication can also be sent to your phone and email, or the medication can be delivered to your door through our trusted partners.
Yes, a doctor can issue you with a medical certificate if deemed suitable. The medical certificate will be emailed to you within minutes of the doctor reviewing your digital consultation.
For medical certificates that must be valid for more than 1 day, patients must consult with a doctor online via an InstantScripts Telehealth consultation.

All requests on our site require an IHI (Individual Health Identifier). Generally, if you have a Medicare card number then you will have an IHI, but you could have an IHI without a Medicare card.
Our express scripts are also generally PBS subsidised so require a Medicare card number

In January 2022, the Australian Government rules regarding telehealth bulk billing changed. In order to be eligible for bulk-billed doctor telehealth consultations, the patient must have had a face-to-face consultation with their doctor or another doctor in the same practice in the 12 months prior to the current telehealth service request. Therefore, InstantScripts is not able to provide bulk billed appointments. To find out more please visit Australian Government Rules
