Did you leave the form with the chemist or pharmacist?

Is this in England?

Has he Doctor given you a slip of paper with the name of the medication written on it?

Do you really mean subscription, or prescription? A prescription in the UK is usually printed in green, there will be your name, address etc. at the top and then details of the medication.

There is usually a charge for this unless you are on a low income, over pension age..and there are a few other things that might make it free, which I can't remember.

Just give it to any chemist and he/she will either charge you, or get you to sign that you are exempt (which means you don't have to pay). Then they will dispense the prescribed medicine.
