What Is Xenical?
Xenical (Orlistat 120mg) is used in the treatment of obesity. Xenical prevents your body from absorbing the fat from
the food you eat. By reducing the amount of fat that is absorbed, Xenical can help you to lose weight more easily.
When you start taking Xenical you will be given a weight loss target for the first 3 months. This target is 5% of
your weight. If you succeed in losing 5% of your weight, you will be eligible to continue taking Xenical.
Pharmacists can supply Xenical for up to two years.
Each time Xenical is supplied you will need to supply
your pharmacist with your current weight. If your weight goes up in any three months, Xenical will need to be
stopped. If you lose enough weight for your BMI to fall below 28, Xenical can no longer be supplied.
people do not succeed in losing weight with Xenical. These people should not be disheartened. They can have a break
of 6 months and try again later, or see a doctor or a weight loss clinic as alternatives. Losing weight, like many
things that are hard to achieve, takes perseverance and resolve, so do not give up.
