Hi All

I've been offered a position I want to take but its Bupa health package won't cover my epilepsy medication I need to take every 12 hours. Bupa have told me that companies can opt for a 'disregard' policy which would entitle their employees with pre-existing conditions to their medications. Does any one have any experience with this or with paying an employer to 'upgrade' their health cover??

Alternatively- any advice on the legality of having family post me meds. Customs problem??

Lastly- any idea of where to get prices of meds to buy them privately.

The drugs I take are: Epilim Chrono 500mg and Keppra 1000mg and 500mg.

Thanks A LOT for any help!

Hi there,

I understand how important it is to take your epilepsy medications but unfortunatley I don't know much knowledge about where and how to buy these medicines in Dubai.. I hope someone else would help you with that..

But from what I know, family need private prescription from your doctor or medical profession to purchase the medicines for you from UK pharmacies, then they're able to send it to you..

Check with the hospitals or a Pharmacist, Marina Pharmacy is nice. You need to see if they have alternatives or dispensing rights before sending via Post. Can you get 6 months supply from ins. Co in UK to last you?
