    I have been on Xenical for over a year and have lost over 7.5 stones. As long as you keep within the fat limit, you will be fine although you might be a bit "windy" to start with. Good Luck.

    Like kes said dont worry about the few bad days we all get them from time to time!!

    For your ticker copy the code then go to edit signature (under user cp) and post it there

    xenical

    well found out a few days before my appt was not seeing my usual nurse , and i said to my fella i bet she wont give me the tabs had trouble with this nurse before, anyway in i goes gets weighed had only lost 4 pounds should have done better so after checking my b/p which had gone up i asked for more tabs and she said no she you dont need them just diet on your own , and basically said she does not like giving out slimming pills, and its better to do it yourself, so totally fed up

    latest xenical update

    hi recent update contacted the docs and they told me to see the nurse , told the surgery manager what had gone on that i wasnt happy, so she told me to come in, the nurse wasnt happy that i had complained , and said she would weigh me every 2 weeks , anyway ended up seeing the doc over a different matter and mentioned the xenical and he has given me these other slimming pills to try there called methylcellulose has anyone heard of those

    I'm confused she was upset bc you complained bc she wouldn't give you the medication you'd already been prescribed?! That makes no sense!

    And nope sorry never heard of it what have you been told?! Xx
