    Hiya. Most gps will give it u but not straight away. I had to show I had the will power and loose 8lb on my own before he'd give them to me. 

    1st time I went I said I'd heard of them and could I have a percription. It's still hard work these pills are not magic u still have to diet. Everything below 5% fat, u have to be low fat all the way else u get awful side effects.

    I went to the doctors for something else and mentioned weight and the doctor recommended them to me saying theh work really well. I guess every doctor is different but just make it clear you want them. They have to listen to you.
