    Hey hun!! I asked jeeves and heres what the dude said!!

    sibutramine and xenical

    Can I take Meridia sibutramine hydrochloride monohydrate) with Xenical?
    Yes. Xenical is a drug that blocks fat absorption in the intestine, and has no systemic effects. Therefore, you will not have an adverse reaction taking these two medications together. However, studies to date have not shown that taking both drugs produces more weight loss. Women who lost weight in a year long double-blind placebo-controlled trial did not lose more weight after adding Xenical to the regimen. Subjects who took phentermine and Xenical also failed to lose more weight. The limitation of the studies are that they only used small numbers of subjects, and did not look at initial weight loss using the combination. But early studies did not look promising.


    Heres the web address theres loads of info on it if u want to have a gander!!

    Sorry it didnt add it!! It seems theres not really any point in using both together. If i was you id stop taking xenical and start using sibutramine and call your docs on monday. He obviously intended you to start takin them.

    Hope this helps hun

    love katie

    But also remember that there was loads of bad press about Reductil last year.
    I took it and it messed with my head and made me depressed. Each of us are different and its worth giving it a go, but if you start to feel low, Id give the xenical another try.

    Best wishes x

    There isn't anything to indicate any contraindications in the BNF, I wouldn't though. One or the other will work best.
