Weight Loss Med

Recommended Posts

I have read somewhere in these threads of a prescribed pill for diabetic weight loss. Please tell me again the name of it.

 

I have a diabetic friend that has gained so much weight that seems unexplainable that I thought I would mention it to her. While I could probably use it I don't take extra meds because of a liver problem.

 

Does anyone remember?

 

Thanks,

Nita

There is a medication Xenical (generic orlistat) that we had a thread about awhile back. As someone who has tried it, it had some really bad GI side effects....so bad that I always had to carry a clean pair of undergarments with me wherever I went, whatever I ate (TMI, I know). I DID lose a little weight, but it just wasn't worth the constant anxiety over potential "accidents."
