Problem getting Nefopam

Posted , 4 users are following.

has anyone not been able to get their prescription for Nefopam dispensed? When I took my prescription to the pharmacist he couldn't give me my full quota. He said there's a problem with getting the drug so I'm owed about 2 weeks supply and it's nearly time for my next prescription to be dispensed. Because of this I've only been taking it on a night. I also take codeine (I have rheumatoid arthritis) but Nefopam is great when I need something extra for the pain.

    When I rang my Doctor to refill my prescription I was told they were having problems so they aren't even giving out prescriptions for it, told if you have any problems to get in touch. I thought I was taking them because I had a problem!!!

    Sorry to just jump in on your conversion, I am knew and had to say something. X

      Thanks Lynn. I haven't ordered any for a while and just managing with Codeine and not needed anything extra. After having a problem getting any things did improve so fortunately I have quite a few in case I need them. It's really frustrating when drugs are hard to get.

    There is obviously a real problem with these due to when you had problems and now me, I just noticed the dat on yours after I posted my note. I think it's disgusting that they tell you not to just stop taking your tables but they are doing just that themselves. I am pleased you are feeling a bit better now x

      I agree Lynn. I know when I posted here last year  I Emailed the company asking them why there was a problem and if supplies were going to improve however I didn't get any response.

      Hello Lynn,  I have been getting my Nefopam now without any problems. It may depend on what area you are in. Ask the pharmacist to ring the manfacturer to find out whats happened.
