I don't know but I don't think thay are allowed to dispense without a prescription. Try ringing NHS Direct. Do you have an out of hours Dr service?

He should give you an emergency supply, and he will mark the tablets ,' emergency supply' normally about a weeks supply.

What I generally do is ask him for a supply and tell him that the surgery are walking the repeat script round to him. Most surgeries walk scripts to local pharmacies and ave a pick up service with Boots.

I do it all the time for DD's epipens, inhalers, antihistamines etc. Use to do it for my Seroxat too, back on Prozac now.

Our pharmacist does on dh's inhalers when he has run out (or more likely lost it!). If not...I guess ask doc?

Most pharmacists will give you an emergency supply, if you're a regular. Your details will be in his/her computer and they can check out your story.
