GPs to shoulder costs of reversing patients from branded to generic pregabalin


dreadful drug, dreadful company, dreadful decision. 1 no new GP prescriptions for gabapentinoids. consultant wants them, they prescribe. 2 on Lyrica , stay on Lyrica. Meds management can do the change and take the flack, if not , no change. 3 resource us to call them in and agree a plan, probably 3 appointments of 20 mins each so 3x£56 per change, cheaper than Lyrica
