Is anyone else here concerned about medication refills in the last days before 31st October (assuming we actually do leave) and the first weeks after in case there are the predicted shortages? I'm not trying to stir up a discussion regarding leave/remain here, nor am I looking for reassurances or admonitions to not give into panic and fear-mongering - I'm keeping my opinion to myself, and only asking if I'm the only 'heartie' worrying there might be shortages, and how others here are planning to cope in case the shortages or supply disruptions really do happen.
I'm on Bisoprolol 1.25mg once a day (great results, no side effects), plus GTN spray (NitroLingual 400 which I very rarely use owing to 'worse than the angina' side effects). My recurring prescription gets me two 28dy packets of the Bisoprolol and one bottle of the GTN (which I've not needed since the first one in late April) and I'm due to pick-up the next renewal the 10th of September. That will take me through the rest of September and October.
When I drop off the refill slip (on the 6th of September) I'm seriously considering ticking the GTN box as well as the beta blocker one, and asking the chemist about their plan in case of supply disruptions.
What else can we do?
