    Anyone been on/tried xenical? (Diet pills)

    Doc prescribed me them a month ago .. OMG!! They were working wonders at first but then I kept cheating because I kept thinking 'the pills will get rid of the weight' and it hasn't been going so well, but I'm determind again now!! Just wondered if anyone else has tried them. x

    do they suppress your appetite or do they speed up your metabolism ?

    Mmmm but all the same woman, worth the risk me thinks!!:-D

    glad to see taxpayers money being used so well, whilst poor others go without potential life saving drugs as herceptin!
    in my opinion, these fat drugs should only be on private scripts

    it breaks down the triglycerides enzyme in the intestine which breaks down fatty acids so the body can not absorb them. actually!

    Aye another huge waste of money for lazy @rses who wont stop eating pie and chips and go for a jog

    recent study in the netherlands showed that the cost per QALY wasnt really justified, and top line recommendations is to try a low calorie diet

    mmm... I;ve only just realised that too. But, like I say, I am determind!

    Thanks Damnome x

    joking aside ladies........ it aint hard to lose weight if your serious and disciplined, these fads are completely un-necessary and basically just shows you arent ready to commit to what it ACTUALLY takes to lose the weight.

    Hope it's of some use:)

    but you mentioned in your original post that you have been cheating?
    seems like you need more than xenical- ask you doctor for bromocriptine
