    From what I can gather, if its the nurse you see, then once she's weighed you, and talked about how things are going, then she lets the doc know to repeat the prescription. This was what happened with my mum, with myself it was the doc I seen anyway.
    If in doubt though, ask the nurse, thats what they are there for :)

    Hi Amanda, I was given my first prescription Of Xenical on Friday by a nurse. I had previously been seen by my doctor when I asked if I could try the drug.
