    When I went to get my prescription last Thursday the pharmacist said it was her last pack, she has had her quota. Someone had been in earlier with a prescription for two packs and she only gave her one to be fair. I struck lucky. I was a lttle concerned.

    I got my script on monday a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't until the thursday that I could collect it. The chemist said it was because there is a shortage in bedford. Hope it will be ok in a couple of weeks when i'm due a repeat script.

    Possible problem with supply and demand?

    Keep the faith :rainbow:

    kind regards
