Triphasil
I am currently in the UK and only set to return to SA end of next year. I have been on Triphasil for 11 years now and am so scared to change to another pill just for a year. Is there any way that I can get it from SA to the UK for a year? I am afraid of the complications involved in changing a pill. Please help!!

There will be a similar pill in the UK by a different name. Take one of your Triphasil packets to the pharmacy so that they can see the constituents and give you their equivalent.
