    I think it depends on your doctor really. In my case it was actually the practice nurse who suggested it to me. They usually want you to lose some weight yourself first, and then you have to lose a certain percentage in the early stages in order to get a repeat prescription. I didn't find it difficult to get it prescribed, or to continue to get it (in fact I've got boxes of the stuff sitting in the cupboard, lol). Good luck! :) xx
