So I am very over weight and my bmi is over 30. I called my doctor and asked if I can get weight loss medicine and I was expecting him to give me orlistat as I have been researching about it and stuff. But he said they dont prescribe anything because they do more bad than good and I dont know wjat to do now. I suffer from type 2 diabetes and I go gym but i dont loose anything. Can anyone help me😭

      Hi. I was offered orlisat by my GP after she complained my weight was creeping up every year. I started off at 106k I am now 94k. Orilsat does really work. You do have to have great portioncontrol. I find that I dont cut anything out I just cut it all in half. I also do circuit training once a week which is a great way to start to exercise. Ask a different GP and explain all your reasons, but I think the type 2 diabetes should be more than enough of a readon. Please do try again as it does work, but you will also have to put in the work!!

      Hi, I dont know why, but doctors dont seem to like to prescribe this medication. It does work, but you normally only get a short supply the first time to make sure it works for you and that you are putting in the effort fo help shift the pounds. It really is not a magic pill and there are some nasty side effects if you dont stick to a low fat diet. I still think yout GP should offer this to you. Did they give you a valid reason?You can also buy this from any chemist. Its not cheapthough. Please let me know how you get on

      Try and get the GP to give you just a month first. I cant see the harm

      Good Luck. Creamy

    Hi Laura,  my last reply was deleted, probably because I mentioned a website and I suppose they saw that as advertising.  All I wanted to say is that you can buy Orlistat on line quite safely from UK sourced sites.  It's not cheap - around £35 for a month's supply, but if you can afford it why not try it for a month and see if it works for you.  If so you could go back to the doctor with proof and ask for it on the NHS.  Good luck!

    Laura you really should get a different doctor. I don't understand why some doctors almost make you beg for this help.

    I have been on these pills for just over 6 months and I am now down from 118kg to 92kg. They have really helped me. But you do have to put the work in for them to work. Good luck. x

      I know that I can control my portion sizes with the help of orlistat. I go to the gym 5 times a week and do yoga twvie a week. Here and there i so eat a little fat but just a little . However, from all that effort for the past 2 years , i havent had a huge difference only ever lost 2kg max. It makes me really angry as I am suffering from diabetes ans I am quite young so i dont want to live like this no more . I need these pills and hopefully will get them on the 10th , hopefully.
