I am surprised that you have not received any answers to your query, but perhaps you have had e mails.  However, my wife and I have repeat prescriptions from our Doctor in France., due to long term ailments. (Not too serious though!) The first thing to do is to arrive here with enough medication for, say, a month. then visit a French Doctor.  Explain the problem, and he/she will probably issue you with a prescription which is renewable every month for 6 months, without the need to visit the Doctor each time .  When you visit the Pharmacy for your medication, they will date stamp the prescription each time.  Hope this helps. Neil
