    Did you apply? It's tempting but it sounds like it's probably drug trials

    I phoned them and I can't participate as the medication would interfere with my job. What a bummer, it sounded good!

    oooowww this scares me a bit. Remember those drug trials that went wrong and the guys nearly died...a couple of years ago. If its a diet like CD then maybe, but if its medication, I'm not too sure.xxx

    There are 3 studies, all low calorie diets, one with the pills, one without and one with exercise. It sounds good but I can't take them with my job otherwise I'd have done it

    oww that's not bad then...if you can get it from the doctors it must have been clinically tried. I'm a coward and wouldn't like to have something that had not been clinically tried, but if they are just seeing if it works, then I'd consider it. Wish they'd asked three months ago LOL.xx

    A possible side effect of the tablets is raised blood pressure and I have a safety critical job on the trains. We can't take any medication without it being approved by BUPA and GSK said I can't take it while working on a train
