    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone had been prescribed Vaniqa and if it works for you? I went to the docs today but he said that as he had never prescribed it to anyone before he was reluctant to give it to me. I have to go back next week after he has spoken to the main doctors at the surgery (he was a locum doctor). I really want to try this and so was also wondering if anyone had had any problems getting it prescribed?

    Many thanks,

    Laura x

    Hi laura,
    I had no problems getting it but when I did use it it made the hair grow thicker and coarser!
    Give it a go and see if it works for you

    Good luck

    I now use an epilator.

    hi rubykirsty,
    Can I ask how did you find reductil, I was offered it but prefered to go without pills,
    did it make your weight loss easier?

    thanks

    Hi verity

    i found reductil fine, no problem at all, had none of the side effects usually associated with them, so was distraught when i Reductil got withdrawn. Id say it did make it a little easier, to train my body when to eat, when not to, and about portion control, but now im doing what i did do when I was on Reductil, but just without it .

    I got a prescription for it yesterday without any problems, did your GP give any indication fo when it will not be available as my GP hasn't ever mentioned it being withdrawn? I have had AMAZING results with it.

    I used it for about 6 mos+ and had a wee bald patch so stopped. Now im having laser and its recommended you use the 2 together so I am using it again and trying to remember twice a day. I am so pleased with laser.

    Are you having to fund that yourself? I am trying to badger my gynaecologist in to referring me on the NHS!

    Yes, unfortunately. I bought a package of 6 treatments for £300, working out as a £16 discount per treatment which is usually £66. tbh it's been so worth it, I am not constantly worrying if the stubble can be seen. I've only shaved 3 times in 5 wks!:eek: And not at all for the past 2 wks.

    Let us know how you get on getting funding, good luck.:)

    I have found the PCT guidelines which say that where I live, six sessions of laser hair removal are to be made available to PCOS sufferers so I will give it my best shot :0) Were you shaving every day prior to your treatments and how many treatments have you had to get to that point? That is FANTASTIC!! :)

    Hiya, I know, it's great!:D I noticed a difference from my first treatment, I suppose my hair wasnt overly excessive but I could always see the horrible black stubble that felt as rough as a badger's bum lol. My third treatment is 6th may.
