    i think its just asking your gp if they can put you on lipotrim tell him you have heard from it a friend is on it by the doctor but she still pays the 36-00 a week.

    I've never mentioned this to my doctor, as I don't know what their opinion would be, but to be honest I was going to do this anyway with or without the GP's ok, so I've just paid for it myself.
    You may also have to have a certain amount of weight to lose before your GP will recommend this - just a thought ?

    i told my GP about it and he was really supportive... apparently there's a lady at the surgery that runs LT, but there's a bit of a waiting list... so i'm just forking out £36/w at the pharmacy...
