I was just wondering if anyone else is having problems getting their prescriptions. I take 100mg a day.

Boots have managed to find two weeks worth.

I'm worried what will happen if they can't get anymore, its not like we should stop taking them without tapering off.

Have you tried a different pharmacy? I had this problem a few years ago and collected my repeat from a different chemist. Have they explained why they can't get them? Or can they guarantee they'll be able to stock in time? If not ring round and find a different chemist.

Boots have tried to get them from near chemists that's how they had 2 weeks.

I did find out from a Google Search last night that the current price in the USA for a months supply is over 300 dollars so I imagine the NHS are unwilling to bear the cost.

Try a different chemist. Your GP wouldn't prescribe if not allowed to. Boots will only use their preferred supplier. Try a supermarket chemist or local. Plus i dont think usa prices have anything to do with ours. The BNF wont have our generic tabs at that price.
