Xenical 120mg Capsule is a medicine that is used to aid in weight loss or to help in reducing the risk of gaining weight that was already lost. The medication can only be used by adults and works best when it is used together with a calorie-reduced diet along with regular physical activities.

How Does Xenical Work?

Xenical is a prescription only medicine used to treat obesity. Xenical is taken by mouth, 3 times a day and helps you lose 50% more weight than you would without it. Xenical works by preventing the body from absorbing about one-third of the fat in the food introduced. Xenical blocks the lipases (enzymes in the digestive system) from breaking down some of the fat and making it undigestable, letting the body eliminate it. You can buy UK-sourced Xenical online from Pharmacy Direct GB. If you do not have a private prescription choose "supply me with a valid prescription" to add to an online consultation.

Xenical is used to treat obesity, however, it should not replace a low-calorie intake diet. As with any weight-control program, the weight loss will be affected by the over-introduction of sugars, fats and calories. For this reason, you are highly recommended to follow the nutrition plan suggested by your doctor in conjunction with taking Xenical.

Your daily intake of fat should be evenly distributed over the three meals as, when Xenical is taken with a high-fat meal, there might be gastrointestinal effects. As Xenical lets the body eliminate the undigested fats through the faeces, you might experience different bowel habits such as fatty or oily stools.

What Does Xenical Treat?

Xenical is mainly used to treat the symptoms of obesity, however, it can also be used to treat:
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Waist management

Xenical FAQ's

  1. What is Xenical used for? Xenical is used to help individuals who are overweight or obese lose weight. It works by reducing the absorption of dietary fat in the body, thus helping to decrease overall calorie intake.
  2. How does Xenical work? Xenical contains the active ingredient Orlistat, which inhibits the action of enzymes in the digestive system that break down fat. This leads to the excretion of undigested fat in the stool, reducing the number of calories absorbed from dietary fat.
  3. Is Xenical an over-the-counter medication? No, Xenical is not available as an over-the-counter medication. It is typically prescribed by a healthcare provider, and its use should be supervised by a medical professional.
  4. What is the recommended dosage of Xenical? The typical recommended dosage is one 120 mg capsule taken with each main meal that contains fat. It should be taken within an hour of consuming the meal. If a meal is missed or doesn't contain fat, the dose can be skipped.
  5. How effective is Xenical for weight loss? Xenical can be effective for weight loss when combined with a reduced-calorie diet and an exercise program. The amount of weight loss varies from person to person, but it can help people lose more weight than they would with diet and exercise alone.
  6. What are the common side effects of Xenical? Common side effects of Xenical may include oily stools, increased frequency of bowel movements, and flatulence. These side effects are often related to the undigested fat passing through the digestive system.
  7. Can Xenical be used by everyone? Xenical may not be suitable for everyone. It's important to discuss its use with a healthcare provider, as they will consider factors such as your overall health, medical history, and medications you may be taking before prescribing it.
  8. Does Xenical interfere with the absorption of vitamins? Yes, Xenical can interfere with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). Your doctor may recommend taking a daily multivitamin supplement containing these vitamins to ensure you receive the necessary nutrients.
  9. How long should Xenical be taken? Xenical is typically prescribed for a specific period, and your healthcare provider will determine the appropriate duration based on your progress and weight loss goals. It is not meant for long-term use.
  10. Can Xenical be used without a diet or exercise program? Xenical is most effective when used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and a regular exercise program. It is not a substitute for healthy lifestyle changes.
