This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General things to remember about Medicines
1. This medicine has been prescribed only for your current medical problem. It should not be used for other medical conditions.

2. Never give your medicine to anyone else and do not use medicines meant for other people.

3. Tell every doctor treating you what medicines you are taking. Always carry a medical information card, stating which medicines you are using. This can be very important if for example you are involved in an accident.

4. Return unused medicines to your pharmacy for disposal.

5. Make sure that other people who live with you or who look after you read this information.
What Livial is used for
During and after the menopause the production of sex hormones by the body decreases. Women may then suffer from complaints such as hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal irritation, depression, and loss of sexual desire. The menopause may also cause thinning of the bones (osteoporosis). Livial can relieve menopausal complaints and prevent bone loss. It can also relieve these symptoms in women who have had their ovaries removed, because it is the ovaries that produce your sex hormones. Relief of symptoms usually starts within a few weeks, but optimal results are obtained after at least three months of treatment. Livial is not intended for contraceptive use, it is for use only by postmenopausal women.

On the back of this leaflet you can find more information about Livial and what it is used for.
