Dear Kay
Neither of these medications is an appetite suppressant as such. Xenical is a real fat-trapper which prevents uptake of dietary fat and thus reduces your energy intake. Reductil works on the serotonin system and helps with weight loss. At a recent Obesity Congress, excellent reports were given on both products. Seeing that you need to lose such a large amount of weight, I would suggest that you start with Xenical. You will need a dr's prescription for both medications, so chat to your gp or physician.
