Xenical (Orlistat) is prescribed to significantly overweight persons for weight management purposes. For better results, the medication is used along with a low-fat diet. It can prevent some of the consumed fats from absorption by the intestine and thus blocks the mechanism of weight gain.
How to take
Xenical is taken orally three times a day, during or one hour after each fat containing meal. For better results, spread the daily consumption of fats, proteins and carbohydrates evenly between meals. If you skip a meal, skip the dose of Xenical as well.
The medication may impede the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, or K; therefore, it is recommended to combine it with a daily multivitamin supplement, taken 2 hours before or after Xenical. It may take a significant amount of time before you notice the first weigh management results.
Common side effects of taking Xenical include: fatty/oily stools, rapid bowel movements, headaches and intestinal gas. If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your medical specialist. Intestinal side effects may increase with an increase of a daily dose. In case of any other side effects, speak to your doctor.
Familiarize your medical specialist with your medical history, especially: allergies; digestion problems such as malabsorption or cholestasis; weak thyroid functioning and metabolism problems such as oxalate kidney stones or hyperoxaluria. Patients with anorexia nervosa and bulimia-type eating disorders should not take this medication.
It is not recommended to use this medication during pregnancy or breast-feeding. It is yet unknown whether Xenical may pass into breast milk. Consult your doctor in advance.
Notify your medical specialist about all other medications you are taking, including non-prescription medications, dietary supplements and herbal products, especially: cyclosporine, "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), diabetes medications (e.g., insulin) and other weight management medications. Take cyclosporine at least 2 hours before or after Xenical for better absorption. Do not take any medications without prior medical consult.
Xenical should be stored at 77°F (25°C) away from light and moisture, out of reach of children and pets.

“My ED was giving me nightmares! Yes, I could use Viagra but it was too expensive to buy all the time. That’s why I ordered a generic version at Canadian Pharmacy and could not be happier with the results.”
Janine L., 35, Winnipeg Albuterol
“What I like most about this pharmacy is that they deliver very fast and always package it securely so no one knows what I ordered. It is a big deal for someone who has very nosy neighbours.”
