    I've never suffered with constipation whilst on the tablets, but I'm interested in what you say Rach about having IBS. My friend was advise by the nurse at her GP not to go on xenical because of her IBS, did you doctor say it would be ok? She would like to try the tablets, but she just got a straight no from the doctors :(

    Hey passiflora, my doctor never said anything about the IBS, what did your friends doctor say to her about it? It hasnt made any difference to my IBS at all. Maybe she could try a different doctor!! I'm sure i have read about others on here having IBS and they are taking the tablets!! I hope your friend is able to get them if its what she really wants!!

    I had constipation and really bad boosting for the first week of taking xenical, I have been fine since! Think it's was just my body adjusting to the tablets and/or the new way of eating! :)
