Forgetting to take Oristat?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Is it just me, or does anyone else forget to take their Oristat at times?

 Today I was checking my little blue buddies and noticed I have a weeks worth of tablets more than I should left! I am aware I dont need to take them when there is little or no fat content, but there has always been some fat content in what I am eating.

I do have quite a lot on my mind at the moment and I have to say they are not the first thing I think about.

I think I shall have to put them in one of those pill dispensers to help remind me, as I am just miles away at the moment. I now find myself wondering how this is going to reflect on my first weigh in on the 15th! 

Just wondering if I should take the left over tablets to show the doctor or not?

    I sometimes dont have three meals a day i class fruit and fat free yogurt as a snack rather than a meal so on some days I only have two, so I will have some over.  I have them in the sauce cupboard as every meal has some kinda sauce on it! so I am reminded to take them. xx

    I forget to take it all the time,I had 84 tablets on 4/06/14. And I have 25 left!! Never cheated tho which is mostly why I take them as I eat very very low fat food now, mostly fresh fruit and veg 

    Can't be bad smile

    I noticed the Alli ones come with a small holder which would be easier/more discreet To carry round shame the orlistat ones don't sad

    I know what you mean - haven't counted my tablets up yet, but sometimes I can't remember if I've taken a tablet or not ... maybe that's just my age!

      Lol ...I can never remember if I have taken them or not either, probably an age thing with me too!

      I fequently go upstair to get something and cant remember what I went up there for, in the end I have to write it on a "Post It" note! ha! ha!

    I put 3 in a little tin at the beginning of every day, then I know whether I've had them or not. But I agree with the others, if I just have fruit then I don't take one.
