From April 1st pregabalin and gabapentin will be reclassified as ‘class C substances’ in the UK. You won’t be able to get these drugs on a repeat prescription. The drugs are used in Rheumatoid Disease mainly for neuropathic pain. The changes have been brought in because of illegal use, addiction problems and medical misuse.
You should have been contacted by your doctor about how to get these drugs in the future. If you haven’t been contacted, then you should contact them!
I posted this because I couldn't see any discussion on here about this.
