  1. I have epilepsy and take medication everyday, currently i get it free, how much will it cost me in Sydney? Will i have to go see a doctor in Sydney straight away to get me written up for repeat prescription or can i take something to a chemist that my doctor here could write out to start with? Thanks xx
  2. I am wondering what is the best way to go about ensuring a smooth transition for a teenager taking Concerta xl 54mgs here in the UK. Would a letter from the paediatrician help? or is needed? How do I go about bringing the medication into the country without any incident given the status of the medication. Is it possible to have a GP in a rural area prescribe this without a referral to a consultant paediatrician in Australia? My teen does so well socially and academically taking this that I would hate for him to come to Australia and have a miserable time because I didn't do the right thing before coming over. Has anyone else any experience of this? I am going to NSW, if that makes a difference. Thanks for any help. :smile:

    Prescription Medicines

    Hi Could anyone advise please, just wondered if you are allowed to take in prescription medication in your luggage when you fly out to Perth to migrate. We have always taken a medicine bag with us when we have gone on holiday, but migrating i wanted to take medicines like inhalers and antihistimines, which are normally from the GP, with me to ensure i have enough until we are settled and registered with a doctor. Thanks Mand
