Patients come to us, asking us to prescribe diazepam for fear of flying. There are a number of very good reasons why prescribing this drug is not recommended.
Patients often ask us to prescribe vitamin D supplements. Vitamin D helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. It helps to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy. In most cases you can purchase your own Vitamin D supplements to take daily from a wide range of supermarkets, health food shops and pharmacies. This leaflet produced by our local Integrated care board containts more information on vitamin D.
