Hi Everyone

I meant to post this sooner but am still a bit forgetfull !!!!

If you are on a mixed dose of Citalopram ie 30mg and have to take 1x 10mg + 1x20mg tablets if they are on the same prescription you should only pay one charge because both the items are the same and it's not your fault that the tablets don't come in your prescribed dosage.

I only found this out accidentially they don't bother to tell you at the doctors or the chemist. Hope it can save some money for someone else prescription charges are costly enough already without being over charged.

Best wishes

    That's good of you to post this advice NickyJane. Hopefully you'll help people save money.

    Fortunately here in Wales we have free prescriptions. Do you all want to move over the Severn Bridge? :lol:
