    My doctor actually said it didnt work mostly because by doing WW Im following a low fat diet anyway so there isnt much for my Xenical to work with.

    You might think i am mad but

    Ok i know everyone is going to think i am crazy but i have been taking xenical for 3 days today is day 3,i went back and had a good chat with the nurse about diet and she gave some stuff to read,i have had no side effects apart from a bit of wind but thats it and i have lost 3lbs,i just couldnt stand the thought of doing inductoin again,i am feeling really well compared to the last couple of weeks,i have been eating lots of fruit and veg,dont know how long i am going to stay on the xenical but i thought i might aswell try them untill they run out.Lucyxx

    I had awful side effects, and I was following a low fat diet. I didn't even lose that much weight on them

    I lost about a stone on them. I then went on holiday and couldn't get back to the healthy eating way when I got back so took them when I was being "good" but If i fancied a blow out I just didn't take them. I f your committed they do work.

    Sometimes being committed isnt enough. I took them religiously and they didnt make the slightest bit of difference :(
