I just wondered if anyone else has had a problem with prescriptions for Hydroxocobalamin being stopped? I self inject once per week, I changed GP's two months ago. On my medical file there is a letter from from my Neurologist confirming that I have neurological symptoms and need to inject every other day until symptoms stop improving (I am now down to one per week, I tried reducing to every three weeks, but kept getting muddled, could not speak properly and memory was chronic - one jab per weeks seems to be just right for me). There is also a letter on my file from a gastroenterologist at a well known private hospital confirming that I have PC antibodies and that I have PA rather than B12 deficiency.
My new GP has not discussed the above with me, so I was surprised when I picked up my prescripton from the local chemist to find that my 6 ampules of serum were not there and the prescription details for same have been deleted from my repeat prescrition form. I spoke to the receptionist to query this and she said the doctor is not prepared to give you 18 months supply in advance and you won't be getting any more, I explained that I self inject weekly and she just kept repeating "I am not medically trained". I have requested a telephone call from my GP next week.
Just wondered, has anyone else had a problem and any suggestions on how I should tackle this one.
