Our expert says:
maia's right, there are various possible areas o problem here. First of all, your GP should be able to renew the prescription, especially if he/she can see the empty bottles establishing what meds at what doses you were receiving. Technically, with uncommon emergency and specific exceptions, a doc should not write a prescription for a patient he does not know personally and who he has not examined / assessed. Long-term chronic meds can be re-presribed without an extra examination in some situations ( such as chronic anti-arthritis meds ).
You seem to have a problem with owing your doc a large amount of money, which must represent a number of different visits - why did you run up such a large debt without discussing it with him ?
You need to discuss with him how you plan to deal with the debt. R 1000 for a simple session shounds like rather an excessive charge.
YOu could go to a state hospital / clinic who would need to re-assess you and select the meds they think best. Seroquel, for instance, may not be on the list of drugs they are enabled to prescribe.
