Will Brexit Affect Your Prescriptions? (Can anyone explain to me why it's already affecting some drugs?)
Explanation from a friend:
3 factors so far:

(1) Supplier stockpiling = less for immediate demand.
(2) Some drugs now supplied to pharmacies on monthly quota. No backfill if exceeded.
(3)Suppliers agree set price over fixed term with NHS. Value of £ dropping = selling at loss so, some drugs diverted to other markets.
