Hi all,

I spoke to my Dr today and she said she hadn`t heard of Lipotrim and was it like LL etc?

I said it was similar, You only have shakes/soup/flapjacks and she said her experience of people on LL is that they lose huge amounts of weight but nearly all put it back on again :(

I managed to lose 6-7lbs this month so she said I`m doing well etc and gave me another prescription for the Xenical.

I have been thinking all day and I think I would like to at least give the LT a go so I phoned the pharmacy and I am going in on Monday as they don`t do it over the weekend.

The advice I`m after is that they said I may not be able to take it because I have an underactive thyroid, PCOS and high cholesterol.

Can someone please tell me if they have been able to take it whilst having these conditions? Now I have finally decided to take the plunge, I want to just crack on ;)

Am a bit worried now that after taking my time to investigate it and come to a proper decision that it will be taken out of my hands :(

The other bit of advice I`m after is about starting this week. My daughter is going into hospital next Thurs and it will be extremely stressful and I need to be on the ball, Will I be past all the nasty feelings - dizziness etc by then if I start on the Monday?

Thanks in advance for any advice you could give me,

LiSe xXx

I found I was feeling dizzy for nearly two weeks, but, I think this varies massively from person to person & is largely related to how much water you drink.

I have PCOS & have had no problems with doing Lipotrim, can't be of help with the other two problems.

Good luck at the pharmacy!

i have underactive thyroid but with thyroxine its normal again. the chemist asked me lots of questions to ensure it was stable. if you have blood results still showing your thyroid is underactive THINK they are reluctant as it is a cause of people not being able to shift weight. may refer you back to GP to see if she is happy for you to start. hopefully yours will be stable and you will be able to start straight away. good luck
