I spoke to my GP and pharmacist about the 10th June Tramadol changes and how it would affect my repeat prescription. I was told it would go through as normal, the change was more to do with how the GP writes the script and how the pharmacist dispenses it, so not for me too worry about.
I was running low by Wednesday and still have severe back pain that nothing really touches, so emailed request, and even wrote in the comments box that I'd been told it wouldn't be affected by changes but that if there was a problem could they please contact me. Apparently not. When I collected my prescription on Friday night, no tramadol, no attached note, no phone call, no email. I've had an agonising weekend without them and can't sleep now for the lower back pain. I was wondering what experiences others have had since the change, and whether I'm to expect a battle tomorrow because of this? Not seeing GP until the end of July so can't wait. Thank you x
