Times has a huge piece on it today. Praps sleuth can find it? Spiriva - for breathing difficulties and Symbicort for asthma appeared on the list also lots for blood pressure amongst others. Something to do with patents coming up I think.

Unfortunately you need to have a subscription to read The Times, so we have to work with what we can access {Embarassed}
Anything that you can add would be most welcome {Smile}

I had trouble getting Symbicort last year so the asthma nurse upped my prescription so I can get two when I put a repeat in every four weeks. So maybe it's my fault they are running low {Embarassed}

I'm used to it Higgs. {Wink} It happens all the time at work {Rolleyes} Yes I get 2 lots of Symbicort 400/12 a time plus 2 lots of Spiriva, Quinine Sulphate and Ramipril so, it could be my fault. Do I care? No. {Tongue Out}

For some reason my gp's prescription service keep supplying me with double meds seems to be since I ordered doubles for going on holiday and it has continued. Just means I only order on a two monthly basis. This shortage of necessary meds has been reported on other sites by desperate patients and received countless offers of help from all over the country. It's a good job we can look after each other as it seems "profits" are more important than patients. Grrrrrr {Unsure}

We tried the local boots chemist for repeat prescriptions, but had to cancel it as we were literally stowed under with tablets and inhalers and we had three months supply of the fortisip drink, they were way to quick off the mark

We were awaiting an early morning police raid {Grin} {Wink}
