The other way round it is to make a doctors appointment on Monday (our surgery do on the day appointments ) and they can issue another prescription on the spot

Denys that's what I'm thinking of doing. I'm new to this whole repeat prescription thing as before I had a diagnosis my doc wanted to see me each time he offered a new prescription to see how I was doing.

Have got through today on ibuprofen and some co-dydramol I found buried in the cupboard from when I was pregnant and just about have enough to get me to Monday lunch time.

Migrembe my doc gives me codeine seperately as after 2 hours of taking co codamol I'm in pain again and need a boost, so I usually do codeine, 2 hours later paracetamol, an hour later ibuprofen and then back to codeine xx

Hi hun,

I've had a similar situation. Doctor forgot to sign repeat and I was at a friend's for a whole week, unable to see them. I rang the NHS direct and explained. It was the weekend as well and they got a GP to ring me back and I said I can show empty packs with my name on it. He asked a lot of questions about my health and the medication and then I had to go to the nearest hospital to get it. They only gave me enough till I could see my doctor the week after but that's all I needed.

Could you maybe try and ring them?
