Today I had my annual review.
I brought up the issue of my prescriptions only being for two months (well, 56 days). I presented a snippet from the MHRA and another from the BMA both imploring three month or longer prescriptions. I explained that as I buy my own from Germany, there is absolutely NO increase in costs. My TSH is only 0.01 different to last year - so very stable.
Very reluctantly she prepared a new prescription - up to 84 days. With the warning that the next repeat might take it down to 56 days again... She wasn't exactly anti but seemed to be getting squeezed between my (reasonable) request and whatever rules, regulations, peer pressure, etc., are pushing her the other way.
The merest sliver of a sniff of a slice of success. O well, at least I asked, and tried.
