Pharmacists told to refuse GPs' generic pregabalin prescriptions

Comment

We are still allowed to prescribe "off-licence", are we not? We should do so here, on principle. Issue generic pregabalin and perhaps put a note on the script that that is what has happened. If the GPC had teeth it would be advising all GPs to hold their ground on this and would promise to fight any legal challenge that resulted.
