    No it is not, I have shown the list to my pharmacist and he confirmed it to be correct.

    Tv news featured an item a few days ago relating to drugs that the pharmacists are already running out of and I’m pretty certain that they were the same As those featured on this list. So could it be nothing to do with no Deal Brexit or anything else to do with Brexit but actually to do with money that is currently available for the NHS. Including some of the drugs I am currently Prescribed.

    Incidentally some of the items on this list are over-the-counter medications no prescription required, things like aspirin that Have been available for many many years Seem a little misplaced on this list.

    The aspirin listed is the soluble type. Yes you can get them over the counter but are quite expensive at the side of the standard ones. Possibly a mixture of costs and Brexit.

    Looking at the titles of some of the related articles on the same website leads me to conclude that the site has a definite political agenda.....anti brexit .

    I don’t want to comment on my brexit views but other news sources have said that current shortages are not brexit related.

    My mum who was a pensioner at the time, used to buy them from the pharmacist in the 1980/90s to treat hypertension along with prescription medication for it, the aspirin cost pennies. So has the price gone up abnormally? I think a tiny bottle (about 50 tablets) was something like 39p. And if she inadvertently ran out she had a pill cutter, I bought one from eBay for 99p I thought it might be useful one day.

    My thoughts exactly. I’m not prepared to believe anything which is clearly politically motivated.

    My granddaughter has had problems twice recently and my daughter in law once, with the pharmacist saying their medication cannot be sourced.

    My pharmacist seems to having increasing supply problems with some of my drugs - Lamotrigine, Leveceteram. They come from varying different suppliers - resulting in they can be round, oblong or diamond shaped - pink white or yellow. The neurologist himself said that was not good.
    They also seem to have difficulty getting some of partners meds.
    Call me paranoid but this has only got worse since Brexit.
