    Doc wants to see me before next Prescription - Worried?

    Hi guys, hope everyone is doing OK and stuff.
    I picked up my repeat prescription of Citalopram today from the pharmacy, and attached to the print-out was a scribbled note saying "Must be seen before next prescription" which has kind of worried me.

    To be honest, I have not actually had a checkup with the Doctor regarding my meds since June, and generally just phone up to arrange a repeat prescription when needed.

    But the anxiety-ridden part of my brain is telling me something is wrong!

    Anyone else had a similar thing happen to them before about repeat prescriptions?

    Cheers,
    Al

    honestly hun there will be nothing to worry about.

    i have been on 5mg cipralex for just over 4 years and every feb i have a review of my meds and there is also a note on my repeat script.

    my doc just asks me how im doing etc its an in and out appointment and im sure yours will be the same.

    seriously there is nothing to worry about xx

    I am on lots of medication and I only get 6 before I have to see the doc for a review.

    It is perfectly normal

    It's actually a good thing that the doctor wants to see you before your next prescription. Sometimes prescriptions are just given out for months on end without any check up involved to see how you are managing with the meds. The surgery sounds well organised.

    It's nothing to worry about. I have to speak to my Doctor on the telephone after every 3 prescriptions just to check that everything is ok.

    There's usually a 'review date' printed on the prescription. It's just so they don't keep prescribing medication that isn't right or isn't needed any more, I think.
