I think it depends on your GP some are happy that youve approached them about trying to lose weight and others are happy seeing that you've already lost some weight id say just go and see what they say!

I do have a nice Dr, so fingers crossed. I just hope I can get an appointment with that particular Dr for Friday. I did ring today, but was told to ring 1st thing Friday morning.

i went this morning and was told that i have to lose 2kg before they'll prescribe it, to show i'm commited. the doc was lovely about it though and said if he could prescribe it to me today, he would :)

thanks so much hun :D x i'm off to disneyland for 3 days on 28th, and then to a wedding on 3rd oct, so i'm hoping i can lose the 2kg and get the tabs before i go.. otherwise it's going to be 3 weeks before i can get to the docs again :eek:

i'm wondering if i can do it by next friday... if i'm reeeeally good and have a HUGE wee before i go to the surgery? :p :D LOL

Well my Dr said No. He was nice about it, but said the statistics for keeping the weight off after xenical were poor, and I'd be better off joining weight watchers, grrr. Im so frustrated.
