Pregabalin and gabapentin to be reclassified as Class C controlled substances


My concern, in relation to this reclassification, is for patients being able to be prescribed sufficient medication when they go on holiday. If they travel for 5 weeks or more outside the UK, how will they obtain enough medication to cover their needs? I understand that only one months supply can be ordered at any one time. Is this direct?
