Looking for some help regarding my situation. I've drank between one to two bottles of wine for 3 years now and decided it was time to get help.
Went to my GP who referred me to an alcohol service. Went through the questions they asked and was basically told because I don't drink of a morning me hold down a job I'm not eligible for Librium. (I start drinking at 6 after work). Which I can deal with but I told the clinic I will not be able to cut down from this limit without help.
The alcohol team told me they would be in touch with an appointment for me... I am still waiting a month on. Rang last night and I was told to ring back again on Friday if I haven't heard anything.
Went to the GP today who, again, told me I couldn't be prescribed anything it was only the alcohol clinic who can do this.
I have consequently read up on Nalmefene (Selincro) and am convinced this is the medicine for me but for the life of me am unable to get a prescription.
I'm now in the position of being in limbo waiting for a lackadaisical alcohol centre to get in touch with me and not knowing where to turn?
It's as if I'm not priority because I'm not opening a bottle of a morning, but in all serious I can say my drinking is sabotaging my every day life.
Has anyone else experienced this? Has anyone combatted this?
Help would be appreciated.
Many thanks for your time.
