How can we help you?

Here you will find the answer to the most frequently asked questions that come in to LIVI's support

Can LIVI GPs prescribe all medications?

No. LIVI GPs do not currently prescribe medication that is subject to stricter controls (such as controlled drugs). Narcotic medications include benzodiazepines, sleeping tablets, pregabalin, gabapentin and strong opioids such as morphine and tramadol.

There are also certain medications that can be prescribed within our pay-as-you-go service, but not within our NHS service as they are not permitted under NHS prescribing limitations (such as prescription treatments for male pattern baldness).  

You can find more information about NHS prescribing guidelines here.

This does not prevent LIVI GPs discussing these treatments and advising you how you can obtain them.
