    my doc wouldnt let me have xenical either - he gave me reductil instead.

    says he didnt think i would "cope" with xenical what does that mean :mad:

    I heard reductil can cause depression and even sucidal, i would rather s**t my pants then feel that low. My doctor gave me xenical over reductil. Each case if different i guess, keep your chin up x

    i agree with Red! (lol)..
    seriously, maybe you could see a different doc? I just went to see a nurse at my gp surgery and she spoke to doc for me and he agreed.
    Good luck if you decide to try again x

    Aw chin up Hunny my first doctor refused to give me Xenical too - he also said I'd never make a size zero model but would make a good farmers wife cos i'd get a lamb under my arm!

    Try speaking to one of the practice nurses - we have a specialist weight management programme now.

    Good Luck

    He said the statistics of xenical and weight maitainence weren't great, so that's the reason he wouldnt let me have them. He said Id be better of joining a slimming class.

    oooh that's about the same price as alli isn't it! still makes it expensive, but a lot more 'do-able' than UK prices!
