Hi Elishahack

    Many many thanks Javlin and Brownow123 so thankful to you both what a help you have been, lovely to know there is that support network there.  :)

    Rang the International company who said it was not a problem, they would accept the prescription, found them very helpful, thanks Guys, I feel so much better now  ^afro^.

    Can I ask something too. I know I can put all my drugs and stuff in the checked in baggage, but will I need a doctors letter to say why I am travelling with needles, sharp box syringes etc?

    I haven't had a chance to check it myself but one of the abroadies travelling from Kiev had a letter from her doctor. I think the main purpose of it would be to explain that you are not importing drugs to sell but for personal use. They haven't asked her for it though.  If I will have to do it I will also take a copy of the original prescription.

    Good luck,

    I asked for the letter just in case I was stopped and baggage searched at either Kiev or Gatwick, particularly Kiev when I could not speak the language.  Just me being cautious especially as I was travelling back on my own and did not want any hassle following the ET.!

    Anyone know where I can get a U.K. prescription?

    Hi all, ;D

    Am having IVIG in Barbados in Sept.  My nurse has just e-mailed and asked me to bring my 1st dose with me as they can't get any on the island til Oct. :(

    This should be fine as I usually get my drugs from Howard at the international pharmacy but he has told me he can get it but only for over 1000 a shot which is really expensive.

    He advised me to shop around, which I have and I can get it cheaper but not without a U.K. script. :-\

    Do any of you know GP's who are sympathetic to Fertility issues as mine refuses point blank to write a prescription for me. ^bigbad^ ^bigbad^

    I see that you have had treatment in the past at Bourn Hall. Have you tried them for your prescription? I have also had treatment with them in the past and they have since helped me out with scans, blood tests and I think once with a prescription while I have been having treatment in Spain.

    Just a thought

    Good luck

    Crusoe,

    Thanks for that. ;D  I didn't even know that that would be an option.

    Will give them a call immediately and let you know. ;)

    Hi,

    What a shame.   :'(

    I spoke to Bourn Hall and they said they are only licensed to write scripts out for patients they are currently treating.

    When I told them it was for IVIG they said I wouldn't get that in the UK anyway.  Luckily I know I can so back to the drawing board.

    Thanks anyway Crusoe - it was worth a try. ::)

    My nurse is on the case in Barbados so maybe she can turn something up.
