    Smile Seroxat/Paroxetine in the UK

    Hello,

    I have a question concerning Paroxetine/Seroxat. I am from Germany and I will be moving to the UK in a couple of weeks. I am not familiar with the NHS and the Health System in general in the UK yet so I would be very grateful if you could help me.
    I know I will have to register with a General Practioner and my question is wether he or she is entitled to prescribe this medicine or if he will transfer me to a medical specialist and if you think I am going to need a confirmation from my German doctor that I'm taking this medication. I also would like to know how much one has to pay for it.

    Thank you very much in advance for your help!

    Hi Silk, your new general practitioner (GP) will be able to prescribe Seroxat for you. I don't think you'll need to prove you've had it before, just tell them that you have. It would be sensible to bring a supply with you so you have plenty of time to get organised over here. If you are moving to England, a prescription will be 7.40 (just over 8). Most doctors would probably give you two months' supply at a time, I think.

    Good luck with the move x
