I have been taking propafenone for some 8years since my PVI under a PIP regime.
My GP will no longer prescribe the drug on a repeat prescription basis and insisted that he referred me to my EP. My representations have been met with deaf ears as my GP now insists that propafenone is a 'specialist only ' drug. The category of propafenone , in my understanding has not changed for years and fail to understand what is the driver behind my GP's unwillingness to provide a repeat prescription. I now have to travel 40 miles to get the drug as it is prescribed through the hospital dispensary where my PVI was carried out.
Has anyone else had this problem?
