Aspirin

Postby Evelyn » Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:56 pm

Does anyone know why I was refused one of my husbands prescription drugs today. It was called Tromalyt and he has been taking it for 11 years. When I asked why I was told that they were not allowed to dispense Aspirin. I was in a hurry, but will go back tomorrow for another explaination but, just thought someone might have an explaination. Thanks

Did you have an actual prescription for it. As a law brought in in 2015 that alot of pharmacists ignored is been pushed again regarding higher dosages of meds such as pailkillers anti inflamatory drugs only been allowed with a prescription

This may well be part of a tightening up of rules on painkillers and other drugs which people had come to regard as everyday consumables.

This was tied up to changes in what you could buy over the counter at chemists. The rationale being to have you visit the doctor to confirm you needed what you previously could just buy. Our doctor actually told us people were hooked on painkillers.

I am not saying that is the case with your situation.

I know prescriptions only last for a year. Maybe it ran out and you need to go to the drs to get another??

Let us know what the chemist says. Asprin is hardly tram adol!!

No Elusive, we went to doctors 2 weeks ago for annual check and his doctor renewed his prescription.
