So today was the big day at the doctors. I had to go and have my blood pressure taken to see if the Reductil was causing any problems or side effects.

I'm pleased to say that I have had no increase in my blood pressure in fact it was a little down on the last time. 

But the best news of all was I've lost 5kg/11lbs in just the first 14 days of taking it. The doctor made me step on the scales twice to make sure it was right. She was very impressed with the results. 

Now for the hard part. I have to keep on dropping the weight to stay on the drug.

Faith, thanks for the ideas... I will keep you all up to date.

I gotta say that the pills intimidate me. (most pills do) but I'm glad they are working (!) and that you are being monitored (by the Doc's)

You can get the pills over the internet but I would never do that, I think you should always see your Doc when on a new drug.

Reductil is like any other drug has it's risks but then again if I didn't give it a go who knows how my health would be.

I watched a program on T.V last night with people having their stomach made smaller with hospital operations. They ran the risk of death from the operation.

The thing that got to me more than anything was the fact some of them where young (20's) and where only 21 stone. Reductil and some education would of helped them lose weight.
