No clue where to post this, sorry. I use Zopiclone for insomnia. I'm grateful my doctor prescribes it. However, he only allows for one 7.5mg tablet a night, which isn't sufficient to fall asleep --- I need 2. I never mentioned anything to him because I didn't want to push my luck, but typically I'd run through a script faster than prescribed and then just wait until the month is up to get a repeat (if needed .. I don't use it continuously). I'm under extra stress at the moment and ran out and was calling to see if I can get my repeat early; however, the pharmacist said it wasn't a 'vital' medication and he wouldn't dispense it. Is it basically up the to the pharmacist's discretion whether they give it or not? I know I need to talk to my doctor about needing a higher dose, but he's away until next year anyway. The script only says 'speak to pharmacist if repeat needed before the 18th', which to me implied there should be nothing stopping me from collecting it.
