I have been asked to submit supporting documents. I don't have the receipts for medical expenses just a tax invoice (as always) from my pharmacist for the total amount for the period, what happens now?

The tax invoice from the pharmacy should be fine. Remember the only relevant invoices are for medicines prescribed by a Doctor.
