Users should not disregard or delay in obtaining medical advice for any medical conditions that they may have, and they should seek the advice of their healthcare professionals for any such conditions.
A level of caution should be exercised by all patients, especially those with co-morbidities (see table below), when using any form of light therapy including a SYMBYX device. Patients can also have these conditions silently without being aware of them. There is always a risk of producing unwanted side-effects, including mild and transient nausea, vomiting, dizziness and vertigo. If these symptoms arise, please wait until they pass before changing position with caution. It is important to recognise these symptoms, cease using your SYMBYX device immediately and seek medical advice if symptoms persist. If a patient is aware of such underlying conditions before commencing light therapy, then they are advised to commence with a 1-2 week, half of the typical recommended dosage, under clinical supervision*.
