    Hi Everyone :sign0144:

    Just wondering if any of you guys suffer with headaches from take Xen tabs. Today is my 2nd day and I've had a headache all day. I've taken some paracetamol but this hasn't touched it.

    I'm hoping it will settle down after a few days. Anyone had the same?

    Hi Karen, I also get headaches but I'm sure mine are caused by low blood sugar as they are always worst on the days when I know I haven't eaten enough.

    I'm not sure if it's a side effect but hopefully yours will settle down soon :)

    Headaches are listed as a very common side effects in the info sheet you get with the tablets. I didn't get any headaches when I was on them before, but this time round I have:rolleyes:

    I've been on the tabs for just over a week now and am def getting more headaches, woke up with one this morning a bit grim at 5.30 when getting ready for work. Fortunately paracetamol sorts it out for me but I dont want to keep taking them and am hoping they ease off soon.

    They are listed as a common side effect and although I would rather not have them would chose a headache and slim against no headache and fat!

    Hey

    I suffered a whole six months with the headaches as well as other side effects, last week when i stopped taking them the headaches disappeared, i asked my doc and she said it is common but they should have passed within a week or two, and for them to last longer isnt quite right....

    but we are all different :)

    i hope you feel better soon

    mine seems better today, is coming and going, seems to come bk about 30mins after taking a tab?? but its more of a constant dull ache today than a blinding headache, and i havent needed paracetemol at all - so looking up! I read on net it could be to do with withdrawl from fatty / sugary foods and not related to tablets at all....makes sense. xxxx

    i was warned by my dr about headaches and was told drink plenty of water if they occured and if they didn't go get blood pressure checked to be on safe side as xenical can put it up. touch wood i drink loads and so far i havn't had one:) hope yours subsides soon.

    hmmm...see how rubbish diff doctors can be?! mine told me that xenical doesnt affect blood pressure at all? she gave me xenical as my blood pressure is always up and down, so she prescribed this for me over the other weight-loss tablet Reductil, as she said that DOES affect b/p??

    Try increasing your water intake, a very high % of headaches are a result of dehydration which will be particularly more evident if you're going to the loo a lot more!!

    I feel a tad better hearing that the headaches should go after the first few weeks. Am on week 2 now and woke up about 30 mins ago (2.30) with another one. Completely fed up cos have got to get up at 5.30 for work. Am going to try and get an hours sleep before then or shall be useless all day.
