Forgetting to take Oristat?

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

      Do you need to carry them around? The length of times you can take them before or after a meal is reasonable, and if you know you can't make it just don't have steak and chips cos the one you took before will work haha xxxx

      Steak and home made wedges are fine as long as you use frylight!  smile I put garlic powder and paprika on them and bung them in the oven on 180 for 35 mins, lush and low fat smile

    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!
