I'm off the tabs - but going on Reductil

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all,

Had my weigh in last night and only lost 1lb in a month so the nurse asked me if I wanted to try Reductil as the Orlistat seems to have stopped working - no more side effects and eating low fat and exercising alot more than usual, but still no great losses - I have lost 2 stones whilst on them, so think it's time to try something else. I got them last night and read the leaflet but not starting them until tomorrow as I'm off for a couple of days and anyway it's someones birthday in the office today - so I'm being naughty and having a cake :lol:

Just like to thank everyone for the support you have given me over the months and I'm still going to report on my losses on Reductil (hoping to have some :lol: ) I think there was someone else on here taking them so if you see this and have any tips please let me know.

Good luck everyone

    please keep in touch as I will be interested to know how you find Reductil. I am also finding orlistat has stopped doing much for me so I have been thinking of Reductil.

    Hi Lelly

    Will do - it was quite spooky yesterday as in the afternoon I'd thought the nurse might offer it to me and she did - I'm a bit worried about being \"hyped up\" but she said at least you'll feel more active and get your housework done!! It's supposed to give you a dry mouth, but as I drink 2 litres of wate a day I'm hoping that will not affect me.

    Anyway I'll let you know how I get on.

    I was on Reductil before going onto Orlistat but tunfortunatly they did nothing for me sad

    I started on the 10mg dose with absolutly no effect, so I was changed to the max. 15mg dose, which worked for about a week....Then again nothing. I didn't find the side effects too bad though. The main thing was trouble sleeping for the first few nights I was on them, bu then that might have been anxiety!

    I hope you get on well with them though, and see some positive results! Good luck!
