Important Drug Information

Dear Patients,

In October 2018, the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) recommended that pregabalin and gabapentin should be controlled as class C Drugs.

Under Uk law, Gabapentin and Pregabalin will now be reclassified as Class C Controlled substances from April 2019 to reduce the growing number of deaths associated with its misuse. 

This change means we are only able to supply these medications one month at a time, and we will no longer be able to electronically send this prescription to the pharmacy for patients who require this medication

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
