What is Xenical?
Xenical (Orlistat) is a unique weight loss medication that actually blocks the absorption of dietary fat into the bloodstream. Taken properly, Xenical can block up to 30% or more of your dietary fat intake, which leads to a significant decrease in your daily fat-calorie intake. Decreasing fat-calorie intake is proven to lead to a rapid and sustainable loss in body fat. It's simple-less calories equal less fat!
How does it work?
Xenical works by blocking the enzyme Lipase in the gastrointestinal system. By inhibiting the function of Lipase, Xenical decreases the amount of fat the body is able to absorb into the bloodstream.
Will Xenical effect my appetite?
No. Unlike Phentermine and Meridia, Xenical generally has no effect on appetite.
How do I take Xenical?
Take one 120-milligram tablet during or up to 1 hour after each main meal, no more than three tablets per day. If you miss a meal, or eat a meal with no fat content, you may skip that dose. Do not try to "make up" a missed dose or increase your dosage, as the extra drug will not help.
When will I see results?
Most people begin to loose weight rapidly, within two weeks. Used correctly with a balanced diet, weight loss can continue for another 6 to 12 months, before slowing.
Is Xenical safe?
Yes! In fact, Xenical is considered a great choice for people who have other medical problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure in addition to a weight problem.
Is Xenical right for me?
Xenical is an excellent medicine for anyone interested in loosing weight and keeping it off long term. It can be used for people with mild, moderate or severe weight problems, safely, effectively, and for long periods of time.
Xenical side effects may include:
Stomach upset Joint pain
