Once again I’m having difficulty getting Mirapexin from pharmacy for my husband today they did send 80 that have been owing from beginning of January. Despite numerous phone calls & they suggesting I get another prescription & go elsewhere, On taking issue with this the 80 owing was ordered. Today arrived with Mixapixen label on a difference brand box & a mixture of brands inside no Mirapexin. Our GP writes the brand on the prescription due to my husband being on a trial before & trying other brands during years which didn’t agree with him. I know Mirapexin is more expensive however the pharmacy is paid for that if requested . Is it right for them to substitute
Apologies that you haven’t received any responses to your query. I have raised this issue internally and we haven’t received any news about a shortage of Mirapex. It sounds to us that this may be a local issue - can you send me a private message with the name and location of the pharmacy so we can look into this in more detail?
