    Yes they kindly photocopy the prescription for me and also stamp it with the date dispensed and I send that and a tesco receipt to my insurance company.

    and people have the cheek to complain at the cost of scanning their breeding dogs once when the cost of treating actual Sm is so high.

    I nearly had a heart attack when the place that mri'd my sisters dog charged 75 for less than a months supply of gabapentin ( and she's not insured) also have the prospect of another two needing meds, we've just took on two rescue sisters ( cousins of above) the flea's have gone but the scratching hasn't. i've got them insured but wether the company will pay out is a different matter.

I cheekily asked her if she got staff discount and she said No regretably she didnt. So folks its of no use trying to get a job with them.

    As far as I can discover, the patent for Lyrica currently expires in October 2013, and that would be the earliest that a generic version of Lyrica could become available - so hopefully not TOO much longer.
