NHF drugs unavailable

THE EDITOR, Sir:

The Health Minister may not be aware, but the drugs on the National Health Fund (NHF) are not available.

Over the past few months, one has not been able to get any when one goes to the pharmacy. One has to buy at the regular price - and that is an additional cost of hundreds of dollars.

I take, for pain, meloxicam 15mg, and for high blood pressure, Enalapril 5mg.

Could the minister please let us know what's going on? I'm sure I'm not alone in having to pay so much more to get the drugs.

A.M.
