I can’t believe how much of a faff this is.
Boots could never get my repeat prescriptions right; it was no end of hassle.
So a few months ago, at GP’s recommendation, I switched to a smaller, local pharmacy, who offer free delivery.
Within a month, I was having problems with them. My repeat prescription didn’t come, and they kept telling me the surgery hadn’t done it yet, which was odd (surgery usually has a 24-hour turnaround for repeat prescriptions). Turned out the pharmacy had gone into administration, so they didn’t have any money to order my baclofen. They’d been desperately phoning round, trying to fulfil the 'scrip by scraping it together from from other branches…
Well anyway, they were eventually sold as a “going concern”, and the new management seemed quite together, so it looked like my problems were over.
Not so. Ordered the new baclofen a week ago, still not received it. Phoned pharmacy for an ETA. They claim to have asked at the surgery every day this week, but surgery still haven’t done it.
Rang surgery, who flatly contradict this. They say the prescription was done and ready for collection last Friday, but nobody has picked it up.
I’m now caught in the middle, and don’t know who to believe. I won’t have any baclofen for tomorrow, unless I go short today - even though I ordered in plenty of time.
This is so stressful, as I’m really frightened of being without it. I don’t think I’d be able to walk, not to mention the pain, and the threat you might have fits if you stop suddenly.
