Hello all, does anybody know how I would go about being put back on Orlistat had a hiccup about a year ago and the docs took me off them. Does that mean I have missed my chance now?

Any help would be great. 

Thanks

    No just ask them again tell them your serious and they will give them to you. How much have you got to lose? also they only give them if your bmi/weightis over a certain number

      hello, my BMI is just a tad over 35. (AGAIN) I'm worried that they won't say yes. I know that they will also want me to show them I can loose X again on my own, this is a struggle to be honest. 

      When I was previously on them I lost around 4stone in a year. Did amazingly well but some how drifted from them (few family issues- no excuse really) And now I have seen the majority pile on again. Really gutted but I cannot continue like this.

      Hello,

      Don't worry they will give them to you they gave them to me about 3 and a half yrs ago i moved house lost them etc blah blah then restarted them in jan 2013 have now lost over 100lb since then and all i said to them the second time around was i want to lose weight and she gave them to me and it was a different doctor that time. Well done for losing that 4 stone. Best thing you can do is make an appointment the worst thing they can say is No then you can always request to see another doctor it's not like you didn't lose weight on them the first time around they know you are serious x

      @Ke190306 even at the prescription i pay it's still cheaper than the website that was quoted good luck you don't need to resort to surgery weight loss on your own with the tablets is achievable. x
