My recent   MR  was declined. According to the  DM one of the reasons for the decline  is that  "  I am not prescribed medication for mental health ."   I take 2  medications for mental health  , one being anti depressants . This is clearly recorded in my HP report ,and medication history .

    Ring them! Then send it in writing with prescription evidence
    obviously they had lost it

    Make a copy as this is all evidence to take to court.
    but I wouldn’t just accept that reason

    We have a great video about going from MR to tribunal appeal.

    Thankyou for all the replies .   I sent all my meds prescription lists ,and wrote what each medication is prescribed for.  , also I  photo copied all paperwork I sent to  DWP  .. I  am  considering  a tribunal ,  I could use this as one of the reasons I disagree with  the  MR decision.   .

    Hi dottydotty

    In what way do these medications prove that you deserve an award ?

    Medication and medical evidenve will not win you an award. PIP is a test of "HOW" you function, medication and medical evidence only back up with the "WHY" you function as you do

    Hello CockneyRebel   In my original decision letter it stated that "  although I have several conditions  there was no medical evidence to prove these conditions  therefor I am unable to  give you any award  " .   I was told to send  medical evidence with my MR .( all sent recorded delivery and all were receive signed for  )    , The MR letter says "although I have several conditions  I take no medication for my conditions ".  I just thought this was a contradiction .   and wondered if I should contact  DWP to enquire ?   .

    Hi DD

    you can certainly try, I just wanted to make sure of the reason for doing so. It is a clear contradiction and the DWP can look at any new evidence that you send in and at least add it to your file
