This is getting ridiculous! It’s unrelated to Amantadine, and in fact unrelated to MS, but last year I went to the pharmacy clutching a 'scrip for steroid eye drops, and couldn’t have those because there was a national scarcity, apparently. The pharmacy did invite me to phone round to see if I could locate any, but as I don’t drive, and wouldn’t be able to go over there if I did find some remote pharmacy that still had some, I had no choice but to go back to the doc and ask her to prescribe an alternative. I’ll concede that prior to MS, and even since, I’ve never been a regular at the doc’s, so perhaps it’s just luck I’d never before been prescribed anything I couldn’t get. But certainly, as a child/young person I don’t remember I or anyone in the immediate family ever being told the chemist just couldn’t do a prescription. So it seems to be a rather worrying new phenomenon. More worrying that GPs don’t seem to know, when prescribing, that patients might have trouble getting the stuff!
