  • How many prescription charges. . . ?

    Divi Mr Pharm S again. . . .

    One prescription:

    1. Dosulepin 25mg Capsules - 1 cap at night (28)
    2. Dosulepin 75mg Tablets - 1 tab in the morning (28)

    ????The Question????

    How many prescription charges?

    I think I know the answer, in fact Im certain Im right from a)what I was taught at Uni, b) from past experiences and c) from studying that horrible book the drug tarrif. BUT Im working in a new store where the staff say different and now starting to doubt my self.

    So...

      Yep. No one argues over two charges for canestan combi. Thats why they then buy OTC.

      Most problems arise over stockings and heliclear.

        Have a member of staff phone your PPA and ask.

          let them do it that way, they're the ones losing the money, but make sure you have your advice on record, so they dont come back blaming you, lol

            Had a patient today. Dr. had prescribed dosulepin 75mg tabs one one Rx and 25mg caps on the other Rx. Dr. told patient you'll only pay one charge as its the same thing!

            Patient didn't want to pay twice so Dr. did both items on same Rx, telling patient that now they would only pay one charge!!!!!!!!!!!

            As patient was taking 100mg in total daily, I suggested Dr. did one rx for caps!! This whole episode took over an hour with patient backwards and forwards to surgery.

            Patient couldn't quite believe that what the Dr. had initally told her was wrong.

            To be fair to Dr it is a completely ludicrous system!
