    I was just wondering how long into Xenical was your 1st Doctors weighin ?

    It seams a lot of you get dr's weighin regularly.

    My Dr gave me the prescription and said I didnt have to see her again for 3 months..
    Does this sound too long a gap ?

    It does tbh. My first re-visit was one month, but he has now given me two months suppiles. So i'm not sure, but i would have thought atleast a month to see if they actually work for you, rather than just giving you three months supply. x

    I guess you could just book a appointment in a month and go see her lol

    Mine was a month and I have to see her very month to be weighed and get another prescription. Three months does seem a very long time, especially if like me you have no scales.

    yeah it does a little although yummy mummy has also been given 3 months worth! it would be woth booking an appointment even if its just to jump on the nurses scales! and you can find out how much you have lost so far!

    Yeah I might do that. I only get 1 months tablets at a time but she just put them on repeat prescription so I can just go pick it up when I need to.

    I had been weigning myself in Boots but havent done that for weeks. I think I have just over a weeks tabs left so might go get weighed with the nurse.
