I've used the same medication and repeat prescription for a number of years. Today I got a letter advising they are changing my repeat prescription from Salbutamol Sulphate 100 to Salamol Inhaler 100. Obviously it is the same ingrediants, dosage etc but I was wondering can they do this and why are they doing this now? My guess is Salamol is a cheaper brand. Problem is, I can see myself having to go to numerous pharmacies to find find this in stock. Am I within my right to request this not be done and keep as salbutamol and has this happened to anyone else?
