    Hi All

    Well as suggested I did speak to my GP this morning at my check up about feeling/being sick at times dependant on what I eat.
    He has confirmed that although it is quite rare it is a potential side effect. He did ask whether I get many of the other ones which I don't so it looks like my body just reacts in a different way.
    He is happy for me to continue taking them though as it is not effecting me too much but we are going to monitor it closely at each check up.

    At least my mind is at rest now

    hey Jacqui!

    I haven't felt sick on xenical but it sometimes seems to mess up my menstural cycle.
    It's probably fair to say that there are some people who just cannot take xenical but I guess it depends on how badly it effects you and if the end results are worth it.

    Hopefully you can pinpoint which foods are causing the problem!! :)
