    Sally, so what you're saying is that Soolantra is available to buy in pharmacies in England but it can only be bought privately cause its not approved by the NHS? Mitchell said is was expensive so I'm guessing that he didn't buy it through the NHS

    Yes, it's available here but you will need a 'private' prescription from a doctor or dermatologist.

    Were you given a NHS prescription or did your very enlightened GP give you a private one?

    Many thanks.

    Not sure what the definition of "Launched" is for NHS, but it sounds to me that "launching" means giving the manufacturer green light to put it on the market.

You gave the Pharmacist a prescription for Soolantra and he/she then went to the back of the shop and returned moments later with a tube of Soolantra.iRight?
    Almost right, she had to order it and i got it that afternoon.

    That's great at least we now know for sure its available. Mitchell you mentioned that you have been taking limecycline for the last couple of years. I'm guessing that it's not working very well from your post yesterday on Soolantra. Many years ago I was prescribed Limecycline and it was the best results I ever had. Then 3 or 4 months later it just became less and less effective. God knows why. Doesn't work at all now. Anyway good luck with the Soolantra and I hope you let us know how you're gettin on in the weeks to come.

    I went to see my GP this morning. She looked it up in her medication book and flatly refused to write me a NHS prescription. Or even a private one that I would gladly pay for myself, come to that.

    She can see from my records that I have been to a dermatologist and have been diagnosed with Rosacea. It's so frustrating!

    Soolantra is maybe too new for some dermatologists to know about.
    For me, it is a sign that the dermatologist is 1) not specialized in inflammatory skin disease or 2) is just doing his/her work at a basic level, without passion to the subject dermatology.

    A different type of dermatologist than for example: http://www.rosaceagroup.org/The_Rosa...l=1#post313281
