My doctor has been unwilling to prescribe futher blood pressure

Resolved Question:

My doctor has been unwilling to prescribe futher blood pressure medication as a special as I have intollerance and allergies to lactose and any of the alitol sweetners, which the tablets have in. I recently was refered to a cardiologist who said they just need to find one I can take. My chwmist has sourced one from a company that he calls a special. Cost around £30-32 per month. My doctors has previously said it's too expensive. Can I insist on this? Do I have any rights?
