View Full Version : Waiting for Medication!

09-15-10, 07:30 PM
Hi, im a 29 male from Melbourne who was diagnosed with ADD two weeks ago. My psychiatrist wants to treat me with D-amphetamine. For some reason he didnt write me out a script then and there. He sent me to my GP who needed to send away forms before she could co-prescribe me the medication. I know S8 regulatations and all that. My question is does anyone know how long one has to wait before the script is cleared? Apparently the GP and psych must send away a notification of treatment and a SPN request forms etc to th D.O.H. I have been waiting two weeks now.:confused:
Thnx all.

DR went on holiday and didnt do my script.. she was a real ***** to me when my psych asked her to co-prescribe. I went back to the medical centre and another DR ( a good one) handled it and i got the script straight away. What a hassle!
