I have recently moved to the area and have unfortunately not been able to register with a doctors yet. I suffer from extreme hay fever and was forced to make an emergency appointment as I needed a prescription from a doctor. I was asked if I had ever taken 'Acrivastine' which I thought I hadn't. I have been on steroid injections, high dosages of antihistamines, steroid nose sprays, 2 types of eye drops etc etc. So you can understand my horror to find out that I had been prescribed benedryl. Benedryl - An over the counter low dosage medication that cost me more in prescription than if I had gone out and purchased them myself. The department will be hearing from me and I expect an explanation as to why my symptoms and past medication were not taken into consideration when prescribing.
