I'm in need of a bit of motivation as I'm not having any weigh ins with my gp and could do with someone who will check in on my progress. I'm 26 with 2 kids from Leeds. Get in touch if you want a diet buddy xx

      Dont get disheartened, just because you think you havent you might be suprised, i have been on the 4 weeks and have lost over a stone, if you are getting the orange monster, watch what fat content you are eating xx

    Hi Rowena,

    Great that so many people have answerd but why aren't you being seen by your GP? Mine won't prescribe it again without a visit and weigh in

    Hiya Rowen, I am in Cheshire and i started this 4 weeks ago, i first of all started on the low 60mg to see if it would work for two weeks then my doctor upped it to the 120mg, i am monitored every month by my doctors and so far in week 3.. i have lost bang on 1 stone and 1/2lb.. its a good tablet to make you aware of the orange monster so to speak but its made me look at fat intake of what i thought was a previously good healthy diet.. my weight balloned up to nearly 20 stone as i have to have steroids for mobility in theatre every 6 months.. so doctor has put me on these to counteract the steroids and so far so good..
