Hi, my GP has prescribed me Orlistat to help with weight loss. Ive read some good and bad things about taking this medication so im in 2 minds... I have to loose around 6/7 stone to be a healthy weight.

I would love to hear anyones experiences with Orlistat... if it has worked for them or not. Thanks

      Yes, i will let you know how i get on. My GP seems to suggest that this is a good method of weight loss and also a good way to help you change your bad eating habits.
