    Don't go to A&E.

    Did you explain that you have run out?

    When I had this, I phoned the surgery, asked for an over the phone consultation with the duty doctor and voila prescription.

    It's not like you're phoning up asking for benzos...

    I think I would have had an argument with them at this point and demanded to speak with the practice manager. It appals me that discontinuation syndrome is taken so lightly by the doctors dishing these things out.

    I'm reasonably certain it says on the advice leaflet for the medication to not discontinue except under medical advice. I'd certainly be asking if it was their advice for you to abruptly discontinue your medication.

    Makes me cross having been through this myself before.

    if you have had your prescription filled a few times at the same pharmacy they may be able to give you some to tide you over.
    Mine certainly did that for me when I was caught short.
