hi. My wife had 2 items on the perscription but one of those was `COMBI` (1 tablet plus cream in the box) and she was charged for 3 items. Is that right?

When you open COMBI box there is two items but they not in retail packages, so they can`t be sold separately.

hope someone can shed some light on it.

Thanks

I presume that you are talking about Canestan, no, it should only be charged as one item, if they both come in the same box and says Combi, then thats what it is, should only be charged for 1 item.

You need to speak to the manager of the pharmacy, if you get no joy then your local health authority should be able to help.

Well, it seems I am wrong, on the pnsc, it says they are charged as two items, at that rate, it is cheaper to buy off prescription, but I have been charged as one item before. http://psnc.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Multi_Charge_2012.pdf

If you have been charged for 2 items rather than one.. would it have been cheaper to purchase it over the counter rather than on prescription ?

 

From Boots it is about £11.50

thanks for the answers. Seems like it will be cheaper over the counter but its too late now. We will do so next time if we get perscription for it.
