    Yet another woman here....but just wanted to say hello and welcome :)
    Like the others have said, there are one or two men around here, including Red, but the majority of us are female.
    Have a look at Shinytooth's posts/diary, he's a man who takes Xenical and has been doing slimming world for month or so with great results. I think he's planning on stopping it soon though, but not because it hasn't worked, just because he felt motivated enough without the structure of that eating plan.

    Good luck with your goals :)

    hi

    im a bloke aged 34 started orlistat know as xenical from my gp, i have lost 1 stone in 4 weeks

    what id like to know as i think it is connected i wear contact lenses but roughly the same time i started these i have started with inflammed eye lids and at the moment unable to wear my contact lenses.

    Can these tablets effect the eyelids?

    I have had the other side effects like stomach aches and oily stools and wind.

    But just seems strange that my eye lids have been sore around the same time

    i have never suffered with eyelid problems before and wore lenses for 10 years

    Hi Tazman, I've just checked the leaflet that comes with the tabs, and eye problems are not listed as side effects.
    The only thing I would say is get your eyes checked, wearing lenses for 10 years with no probs doesn't mean that they can't be causing a prob now. So please get your eyes checked ASAP xx

    Hey there !!

    Another Irish lad here :) .. though based in UK now. Just turned 28, and am doing Slimming World also, 2 weeks into it - and also on Xenical. Almost out of them, so going to Dr's this week - have changed GP so hopefully I'll get prescription ok.

    Slimming World is fantastic - really loving it.
    Xenical .. works .. and you know it does when you eat fatty food !!!!!


    Best of luck with it mate, and feel free to message me if ya need some " Luck o the Irish Moral Support " :p
