    A gp can prescribe this medication, although i imagine only doctors with good knowledge of this medication will do it.

    Yeah, then they get scared of the possible side effects and deny you access to the drug.
    If a doctor has a preconceived idea about what a drug is like, no NHS website or BNF book will help. Trust me, ive had it first hand!
