Amitriptyline 2022 Update

We just wanted to take the time out to explain what has happened with our previously stocked Amitriptyline Tablets.

Previously e-Surgery would stock Amitriptyline for the treatment of neuropathic pain, however, following a recent review from the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), it has been requested that Amitriptyline no longer be sold online. Whilst this medication was distributed from e-Surgery as a treatment for neuropathic pain, you will notice if you google “Amitriptyline “  it is listed as an antidepressant. Relating to this, our regulating body the GPhC has alerted us to the fact that this medication has been used inappropriately and abused so is therefore no longer safe to prescribe online. Please be aware that you will still be able to get this treatment from your GP/Doctor.

Will Amitriptyline Return?

Here at e-Surgery, we hope to offer you Amitriptyline again as soon as possible, as we are aware this is an essential medication for some of our patients. Unfortunately due to this change in guidance, many online pharmacies have been advised to remove Amitriptyline from sale. As a private online service, we are unable to access patient records from the NHS therefore we cannot guarantee when this will be available online from e-Surgery. If in the future we have access to the Summary Care Records from the NHS, and with patient consent, we will be able to prescribe Amitriptyline again.

At e-Surgery, we want to provide you with all the services we possibly can, however patient safety must remain our top priority. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our customer care team and they will be happy to help.

Where to buy Amitriptyline?
