I picked up a prescription from the GP today after my Endo wrote to GP telling him to increase my dose from 25 to 50 Levo.
The tablets they gave me were a different brand so I had to go back to GP and ask them to change my prescription (I'm very sensitive to change) so that I could get the same brand as they only stocked 25s.
Medical staff at first told me I would have to visit pharmacies outside of town hunting down 50s as I can't have the prescription changed as it's not their policy to specify a brand on a prescription. When I explained that "No, I wouldn't be doing that! But was happy for them to ring around whilst I waited .... or they could change the prescription they rang one of the pharmacies and arranged to double up the 25s (i.e. give me four packs of 25s for two month prescription).
The chemist said they cannot find this brand in 50s!
It's being changed on their system to only prescribe this brand now but what does this mean going forward:-
What happens at 75 and 100? Does it cost more to get two packs of a lower dose than one of a stronger dose?
