HI Fluffy Girl
Welcome to the forum. Oristat is a medication that expels fat from food out of your body. It can be unpleasant at times and give you wind also. But they do work as you will not want to eat fatty foods whilst on them as the loose stools will put you off if nothing else. I would certainly give them a try in collaboration witha calorie controlled diet also. You need to go back to your GP monthly for weighing and more prescriptns to ensure you are fulfilling the PCT criteria . I would ask your GP for a copy of the criteria for Croydon but also Stacey from Streamline on forum maybe able to assist you.
If I can be of any help please say :welcome:

Good for you asking for help it is the first step to a better life for yourself x
