I have been to my doctors on and off now for about three years, I believe I am peripausal and have put on about 2 stone in 3 years, I was suspecting I had hypothyroidism and my last two blood tests said they were borderlinre normal ! however, I asked my doctor if I could maybe have a short trial of Thyroxine ( as I felt this would help my weight to drop off ! think the doc suspected this is what I wanted to go on it for) but he would not prescribe it for me, however at his suggestion he was willing to let me have a months trial of Orlistat and after reading some of these posts I was scared to death to try it ..anyhow I started it yesterday and so far so gud ( although I don't wish to speak to soon) Just wanted to ask when will the dreaded side effects start, must admit I padded myself up well so as not to get caught out :oops: also I wanted to ask about the dosage, I know they recommend 3 x tablets daily but if 2 of your meals are low fat do you still need to take the recommended dosage in order to get the full benefits of this medication.
Thanks in advance
