    Might be worth discussing this with your doctor as Xenical is twice as strong as Alli

    i would say start the Alli, and give it a week and if you are still happy on them go see the Dr and get thier opinion on if they are happy for you to be on them... (providing your blood pressure etc is ok.)
    they will then be able to monitor this....
    but go for it...
    keep us all posted and let us know how your doing...
    maybe start a diary.. i know it helps me get and stay on track....

    Hi

    I have been prescribed Alli today, i have been started off on the 60mg, to see how i get on, and i have to go back in a month. I tried xenical about 2 years ago and did lose weight, but couldnt cope with side affects. But now i've decided to give it another go. The main reason is because i was told yesterday i could be referred for a gastric band, and it shocked me into it.

    I have around 8 stone to lose, im currently 17stone and im 5ft 2ins.

    Good luck with your weight loss Michele, i hope it goes well for you

    Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
