Has Anyone Gone To A Different Doctor For A Prescription

I was just wondering if anyone has some advise about getting a prescription from a doctor that is not your regular doctor? My doctor refuses to write a prescription to anyone for duromine. Do I keep making one off appointments with new doctors in the hope that one of them will prescribe it? My confidence is so low and I'm scared a new doctor will react the same way my doctor did( was really annoyed that I even asked and didn't want to hear my reasons for wanting to go on duromine). Any advise or personal experiences would be so greatly appreciated.

Hello :)
May I ask, do you fit the usual 'numbers' criteria to get the script? (If you Dr wasn't adverse to it)?

If you do, I'd go to another Dr & lay it all out to him / her. Be frank, realistic & explain how much you need to minimise your appetite & what it means to you.

Mr Dr was reluctant but after I truly came out with it all - he said yes.

Love to hear back how you go...
Good luck x
