For my RLS treatment I take Paramipexole. This along with other RLS treatments is blacklisted by my local NHS trust and so I have been paying for a private prescription for several years. I found out from our forum that some of you are able to get your medication on normal NHS prescriptions. I wrote to my NHS trust with all the details and they responded by asking me to take various blood tests etc and completing a questionnaire to determine the severity of my condition.
I have just received a letter from the NHS trust confirming that after careful consideration my doctor can now prescribe Paramipexole to me on normal NHS prescriptions.
This will obviously be of interest to anyone else that finds themselves in the same position.
