Important changes to ordering your prescriptions

In order to make our prescription service safer, and after careful consideration, our GPs have made the decision that it is in our patient’s best interest and for safe prescribing of medications that we will no longer take medication requests over the telephone, this includes the removal of our repeat ordering telephone message service as of the 15th April.

Chronic Pain and Painkillers Review Form

In the past many patients have been prescribed strong pain killers. Patients were told that medications should be taken regularly and doses increased often. This was often on the advice of the local pain clinic. This advice was wrong and many people now find themselves inadvertently dependent on these drugs?

Many patients have pain that is difficult to define with conditions like fibromyalgia, regional pain syndromes, and chronic back pain. These conditions do not respond to long term use of pain killers and these drugs simply stop working.

There are many other treatment options and many people find Live well With Pain a very helpful website to support patients.  

Here are some links to  Gabapentin , Pregabalin , Co-codamol, DihydrocodeineTramadol and morphine.  

Here is a patient story about prescription drug dependence.
