What is the situation regarding repeat prescriptions that keep you going for longer than usual? I spend up to four months abroad in the summer and my doctor is reluctant to prescribe medication for long periods on the grounds that he cannot monitor my health while I am away. Any suggestions?
I'm sorry that nobody has replied to your post sooner. I'm not sure what the official guidance on prescribing timescales is. My local surgery prefers to give me only 28 days at a time which I suspect helps their finances. I expect and hope that GPs have discretion to offer bigger batches if appropriate.
If you are physically able to go away for 4 months then it would seem unreasonable for your GP to restrict you in this way.
I hope you have managed to make some progress
