Hi, thank you for getting in touch. Sorry to hear you don't have enough supply while in the UK. This particular website is for advice only and can't prescribe. That prescription wouldn't be valid in the UK so you would need to try one of the following:

1. If you're going to be there a while you could register with a general practitioner service in the area where you are and ask them for a prescription.

2. You could try visiting a walk in centre (usually attached to the nearest A&E (ED)) and these are staffed by out of hours GPs who may be able to give you a short supply to see you through

3. You could try one of the online services that is able to offer prescriptions online after a short consultation such as pushdoctor.co.uk

I suspect option 3 is your best bet. I hope that helps and you get what you need soon, all the very best.
