    Explain it to the pharmacist and doctors surgery. If that doesn't work make an appointment with a doctor or nurse and explain it to them. You should be able to have a note added to your prescription or something to explain that you skip part of it so need it early. If you ever run out because of it you can ask the pharmacy to do a loan/ emergency prescription or call the surgery and say you need to sort out medication now.
