    Wow, that's crazy. I thought that most drugs are clinically tested first to see if there is problems like this that could happen. How did that slip by unnoticed.

    My doctor gave me a choice of either the xenical or the reductil (well I assume it was reductil) and the *only* reason I decided against reductil was because I'd have to come every week to have my blood pressure taken.

    I know someone who has lost 10 stone on Reductil and I had actually gone to my GP to ask to start taking it but my BP is too high and thankfully I was put on Xenical instead.

    I agree I think we're gonna see more people in here now.

    I was taking this drug last year until I found out I was pregnant, the only reason I'm not on it again now is because my blood pressure went up towards the end of my pregnancy and with my baby only being 7 weeks old the doctor wanted me to wait a couple of months so gave me xenical instead. I'm really glad now, I never knew of any side effects or risks when I was taking this before. Plus I have to say I'm getting better results now with the xenical than I ever did taking reductil.
