Hi just wondering when everyone got their exemptions? Was it as soon as you started levo?
I started beginning of March which she said was a trial so gave me 2 months on one prescription so i wouldn't have to pay twice.
Tried to get a gp appointment today, started ringing at 07:58, they open at 8, finally got through at 8:03 and all had gone. They don't do telephone consultations so I left a message for the dr to review my results. Got a phone call from the receptionist at 12:30 to say a prescription for 50mcg has been left for me.
When I went to pick it up I asked if that meant I was no longer on trial and have a diagnosis. She checked my notes but said it didn't say anything other than had increased dose and recheck levels in 8 weeks.
I went to the chemist and the pharmacist said "I assume you're medical exemption" and considering there was also b12 injection and folio acid on it as repeat I didn't correct him...
I now feel guilty but don't know why I should? I pay for my own blood tests so I don't think it's alot to ask for what everyone else on levo gets?
Am I being silly or have I done the wrong thing? I have been paying for folio acid and b12 since Jan then levo since March. This is the first time I haven't paid
