Hi, new to Orlistat

Edited , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

I have just been prescribed Orlistat by my GP as I have an underactive thyroid and have been gaining weight for 18 months after having an endometrial ablation. I have been dieting however I either do not loose at all or I actually gain weight! My GP has recommended that I try this to see if I can shift some of the weight.

Are there any members still on here? It seems that a lot of the posts are from some time ago. It would be nice to share experiences with someone.

Nia 😃
