Patients on Pregabalin and Gabapentin
As from now, Pregabalin and Gabapentin are being classed as controlled drugs. This means that:
- Prescriptions will not be able to be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy
- Prescriptions have to be collected from the surgery as they require a signature by the patient, a relative or a pharmacy
- Maximum quantity allowed to be issued is 28 Days
If you feel you may want to reduce or stop either of these medications please make an appointment at the surgery to discuss with one of the Practice Pharmacists.
If you are taking regular medication you will be issued with a computerised repeat prescription form, listing every item that you are allowed to order without seeing a doctor.
Requests can be made by ticking the items you require and handing the slip into reception, or sending it in by post (IF YOU WISH IT TO BE POSTED BACK TO YOU PLEASE ENCLOSE A STAMPED ADDRESSED ENVELOPE).
To avoid mistakes, we do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone.
Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be processed.
NB: You can no longer order prescriptions via this website. However you can order on line by a system called Patient on line access
