I am on medication for Type 2 Diabetes which is only prescribed 28 days at a time. I had a phone call from the Surgery this morning to say that a medication I take for Peripheral Neuropathy (not Diabetes related) is to be regulated to 28 days in future as it is now a Controlled Drug. All my other medications are for longer periods.
I don't think this has anything to do with the Government or NHS rationing. Pharmacists are often best people to discuss medications with, mine does my Annual review not GP. Although they cannot prescribe they have a greater awareness of medications due to their training. A good Pharmacist will always advise if you need to discuss any problems with your GP.
I am very surprised any-one could get more than 2 months supply of medication except in unusual circumstances.
I'm sick to death of it - anyone else?
What on earth do I do? - too close to Christmas
I don't understand this trend - AIBU?
