    Hi Kes, you're right in thinking that Reductil was an appetite supressant, but this isn't the same thing.
    Reductil was a brain chemical change-thingy, where as it sounds like this actually works its magic in your stomach itself.
    I took Reductil for a while, but it did absolutely nothing for me, except to send my blood pressure through the roof! :eek:

    Reductil has now been banned in the UK - I was precribed these by my GP, but that was before the ban. They were designed as an appetite suppressant, but I believe that the risk of stroke or heart attack was thought to be too great, and therefore they were banned.

    Xenical is the only other weight-loss drug I have been prescribed by my GP. This works by eliminating a third of the fat in each meal you eat, but it is not an appetite suppressant.

    These are the only weight-loss prescription drugs that I am aware of, but one of the other members may know more.

    Hope this helps :)

    hi mrs N
    i was prescribed the pills in original post but tbh they were horrible to take! u had to take 3 before a meal chew them and drink with a pint of luke warm water! i just couldnt stomach them! they literally bulk your tummy so you feel full sooner and therefore appitite surpressed. you can have them prescribed but i see u can buy them without prescription on the internet too. I wouldnt rate them but if you cant take anything else it may be worth discusiin it with your doc

    I tried these about 2 years ago - they're not a prescription only item and are available over the counter at the chemist (although there's nothing stopping your Doctor writing a prescription for them but it's cheaper just to buy them as a prescription costs £7.20). Cost was around £4 for a tub.

    They bulk up in your tummy to stop you feeling hungry. They didn't really work for me as my problem wasn't/isn't eating beacuse I'm hungry - I eat because I'm greedy so feeling full had no bearing on whether I ate!
