Good news and worth showing to any reticent GPs who won't prescribe 2!

FWIW this has come about thanks to campaigning by the Anaphylaxis Campaign

ah, good news smile.

DS's don't run out until the end of the year but I was starting to fret about what they would prescribe.

This is good news. In the meantime here's a petition started by a mum, which has already attracted nearly 7,000 supporters.
