About the other issue, I was talking about "claiming back" expenses but I've just read that you can't do that any more. It was all stopped on 1st January 2014!

Yes about the essenzione form but it does need to be "initiated" by your GP. You'll need to have a scan medical whatever to prove you have that condition. The consultant ticks the boxes that you can be exempt for drug payment and you take it to ASL. Our chemist is now on the network so it's true you dont need to take the certificate with you! I just take my whole filing cabinet with me wherever I go anyway. Just in case I get asked for random document. Pass the prozac.
Husband has just done it. Again. It was all done by his specialist -seen privately, but at a hospital- and the ASL. The ASL did give him a form, but the GP didn't need it because it already showed up on his records.

Prozac is not available on the NHS. Little wonder.
