Hey guys. Just thought I'd let you guys know that I've given up the tabs.

They were making me paranoid, depressed and I felt like absolute cr*p(Physically)!! So I'm going to go back to my doctors and just tell him that I've given up.

I don't know what else is out there that can help me.

I've tried Reductil and they were okay.

My auntie recommended some tabs that body builders use lmao I'm not sure what they're called but they make you lose your appetite. I know that's not necessarily good for you but I need something to get this weight off my body!

Sorry it's so long but I need to babble on!

    Hey 'biggirlie'. Think you are doing the best thing if you really feel these are not right for you. Please don't resort to drastc measures though. A few years ago I took diet pills bought from a tanning salon, called 'bioslimmer' or something stupid.They were appetite suppresents, and did work cos I didnt want to eat but had exactly the same symptoms you are experiencing on the orlistat.I was anxious and bit paranoid and soon ditched the tabs. I do think you are better getting something properly prescribed by a doctor rather then something over the counter/internet.Not sure what to suggest though if you've tried reductil already, and orlistat obviously isnt working.Good luck anyway.Hope you find something to help. :D :D :D

    Hi Girlie

    I have been reading the clinical trial for Xenical and there was no instances of this as a side effect. Reductil is listed as one of the drugs that can give you those side effects, how long ago did you stop taking them??

    What i would say to you is maybe it effects you absorbing fat soluble vitamins and when we have a deficiency we can feel like you are.

    Perhaps speak to your GP but don't rule them out entirely!!!

    Please dont take anything off the internet, they are not legal and also can harm your body! There is a reason why we have prescription medicine!!!

    Yep listen to ya auntie Skye and Auntie Sara :D

    Trouble with the drugs you buy off the net are they can be highly poisionous as they can interact with tablets you are already taking or are high in amphetamine based excipients so you are effectively taking speed and thats why they work but your body wont thank you for it as well as becoming addicted to them

    Rach we are here and only a message away so dont give up!

    I hope you dont give up on them.

    I was going to buy pills on the internet to lose weight thats why my doctor thought about the Orlistat.The ones i was looking at made you lose weight but also could cause heart attacks. There honestly not worth it.Your doctor will give you something else or if you give the Orlistat a little longer you might feel better :D
