25,000 Creon supply issue?

Post by Foxysally » Tue Feb 13, 2018 6:56 pm

I went to collect my usual creon just over a week ago; Tescos had one bottle of 100 in stock and ordered the other three. I have a slip saying I'm owed them. So far, so usual. Mid last week, still not in and Tesco said there was a supply issue and to speak to doc about getting 40,000s instead.

GP has done me a script for one bottle of 40,000 to tide me over. Today Tesco told me the manufacturer cannot supply the owed 25,000s and has no date for when they can.

Onsite GP pharmacy can't help either and has just said to go back if I still can't get them when my 40,000s run out and speak to the GP again (early next week, I guess, as one bottle of 40,000 is not comparable to three of 25,000).

It all seems to be using up an awful lot of GP and pharmacist time, not to mention mine!

Has anyone else had trouble?

As an aside, the 40,000s are large. It's a good job I could swallow a golf ball :lol:

I'm pleased I've only ever had the nice little 10,000's!

It might be worth asking for the prescription to be made permanent at either the 10,000 or 40,000 and make the adjustment to the number that you take. All sizes are packed in 100's.

How strange,
I take Pancrease HL . Over the last year my Pharmacy have been having problems with supplies with this also.
I telephoned their suppliers to insist that o required the product to eat food, (not to sell on the internet ) as the supplier had mentioned to my Pharmasist! 👀
I haven’t had a problem since ( fingers crossed ) neither my Chemist.

Oh golf balls are not a good idea to swallow . Health and safety must be observed at all times pease 😂😂😂

Good vibes to all
