I asked about a number of drugs and you have not told me the reason all these drugs would be prescribed to a patient? For this amount of drugs to be prescribed there must be a reason they are prescribed together. The drugs were norethisterone 5mg, neoclarityn 5mg, lodine 50mg, dicloflex 50mg, disclosing tablets, utovlan. please answer, I do not want to leave bad feedback. £12 is a lot of money for an answer less than 300 words I feel.

You still haven't answered my question adequetly enough for the amount of money I have paid. I'm dissappointed. Yes I recieved an answer but not to the other drugs I mentioned. I am new to this site and tried to amend my initial question where it says do you have any additions and you did not answer them! Please could you answer my full question?

Please just hold on for 10-15 minutes.

Thank you.
