Since having starting Xenical 13 days ago I have really been struggling to sleep. Wondering if anyone has had this? Doesn't seem to be listed as 1 of the side effects.

Just wondered if it may be the pills affecting my sleep or something else I need to look into.

Thanks xx

I havent' suffered with it. Have you been making any other changes to your routine or feeling stressed etc?


gunna be a fatty for ever

i did struggle with this actually! im sure i read it in the side effects some where! It lasted a few weeks for me i used to try everything warm bath ho drink etc to try an wind down. A good routine should work well too!

maybe you could mention it to your GP when you go next

Glad I'm not the only 1! I will do thanks xx
The insomnia goes away. I didnt mention it to the doc, I didnt want to give her any excuses to take me off the tabs.


Go on smile! =)
The time is now 4.14am. :( i feel your pain hehe.

It's weird how the pills affect us in different ways isn't it. i mean we're all basically the same make up!

Insomnia is one of my curses, with or without Xenical, but odd as it may be I seem to have been getter better with it since being on it, go figure! I think it is because I have been worrying about my obesity and feel better for doing something positive about it the other tip I would give is:

Save some calories for a nice pre-bed snack and do something relaxing before going to bed. I normally get into my night rags and play on the Pooter for a while, catching up with the forums then having a game of Solitaire or something whilst having a nice low cal Sandwich, then off to bed, it is working for me.
