    It was the same GP practice, I'd been on them before, messed about and didn't make much of it and stopped taking them. I was dubious about getting them again but it was no problem, they gave them to me straight away. No harm in asking!

    Diet:
    Xenical until March 2011 then Weight Watchers, now Exante (from 4/9/11)
    I've been off and on them three times now with varied success/dedication

    The first time, I did really well and lost about 5 stone on them
    The second time I messed about for a couple of months and didn't bother going back for more
    Then I was prescribed reductil for a couple of months (which has now been withdrawn, but didn't suit me anyway)
    And now I'm back on the Xenical again :D

    Luckily I've got a very supportive GP, who is happy to keep prescribing as long as I'm willing to make a genuine effort.
    Good luck!
