    Hi
    Not sure what the doc said I had to lose to continue on them - I think 5% - was this over 1 month or 3 months?
    Any ideas - what were you told?

    Hi Notebook

    I have just started my course of Xenical and been told to do the 5% during 3 months....think it is on product website or the pill info leaflet too....if I remember rightly...
