Schedule 8 ...... S8 permit needed to prescribe

Recommended Posts

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:

Hi

 

I found some info about taking controlled drugs to Oz here:

Sorry, not sure what the protocol is for getting it prescribed in Oz.

 

Cheers
