The side effects are horrendous. Be prepared to buy new underwear!

It was not successful for me.

It was very successful for me while using it, but you have to follow the instructions re eating fat.
I lost 3 and a half stones, all of which has returned but that is down to my poor eating and lack of exercise.

I have not taken them but just reading about the side effects would probably stop me eating anything with fat in it in the first place. Maybe a good idea to use them on a day you are staying in? Buy cheap undies and don't go mad on fat foods and i'm sure you will be fine. Good luck, I hope it works for you.

Thanks everyibe. My gp steamrollered me into it but I need something! I wonder hoiw long the effect lasts? Say if I ewanted a day off for my birthday- would I stop tablets a few days before!

Therelunctantcountess why do you think it didn't work?

I believe the word Shart was invented for Orlistat
