Depends on your doctor but I was the same and my GP gave them to me again.
did you see the same gp and how long in between im wondering if by just seeing my history that ive had them if any doc will give them to me?
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!
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Then I was prescribed reductil for a couple of months (which has now been withdrawn, but didn't suit me anyway)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!
