Anyone else notice chemists having "problems" with medicine suppliers?

My latest prescription was of a cheaper brand.
Nope, mine’s been the same brand for a year or so.

Don’t think the ‘brand ‘ matters. If it’s the same medication and cheaper thats just great!

Interesting choice of backdrops for Bojo’s speechifying over two days.

Yesterday the police, supposedly not political but also usually seen as reliable and trustworthy whereas Boris.....

Today, seeking something more appropriate he poses with a bull. Of course both of them produce a great deal of bull substances. Most apt.

I really miss Spitting Image. It always revealed the absurdity of politics & politicians better than the serious commentators.

Unless the regulations have changed in the last few years, and I doubt they have, then if the drug is available generically, i.e. effectively out of Copyright/Trademark type controls for the originator, then so long as the Dr prescribes the generic name, the Pharmacy can provide whichever brand they wish.
If the Dr used the Trademark name, then they have to give you that manufacturer.

My sister has today facebooked a link to a report about certain drugs being in possible short supply:

There's no date to this page, so we can't tell when it was written, but 3 of the 4 drugs I have are on there. :(

This is why I don't do the Facebook thing, it's like the Daily Mail on steroids as far as scaremongering goes.

:D :D

Twitter is worse, all goes fine for ages, then some nasty vindictive little Troll goes to work trying to stir things up.
You can't converse with them, because if you're not in total agreement with them, then you're the anti-christ with 666 tattooed behind your ear... and they get worse.. :D :D

Forums are the same, there's always someone who knows everything and spouts stuff as gospel. As my mum would say, there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Unfortunately people like that stifle conversation because other knowledgeable people with a different viewpoint can't be bothered arguing with established posters.

Not many folk keep their lives private these days. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—— there was, on this very forum, what seemed like a spate of one upmanship over various health issues, no sooner had someone described their ailment, someone else posted a ‘better’ one, almost as a point of pride!
No way would I mention my wooden leg and bionic arm, in that manner.

Many of mine are on the list. Still...I've had a good life...
Not that the Tories would care, I was there through the Thatcher era and will never forgive them. Not that the rest are much better.

So I gather, the monkeys, at London zoo, are suing the artist for defamation
