How does it work?
Xenical is not an appetite suppressant, it works by blocking enzymes in the digestive juices of the gut which digest fat. It is considered to be a safe and effective medical treatment. When taking Xenical nearly a third of the fat that you eat is undigested and passes out in the motions. By reducing the quantity of fat which is absorbed Xenical will help you lose weight more easily. It does not stop the calories from sugar and other non-fat based foods from being absorbed. Your intake of fat and other calories will need to be reduced as well.
Can you buy Xenical without going through the online Dr service?
In the UK Xenical 120mg and Orlistat 120mg capsules are classified as prescription only medicines. They can only be obtained either through an online doctor service, through a prescription from your own GP or through a private doctor service.
Orlistat can be bought over the counter in the UK in a lower strength of 60mg as the brand name Alli.
What else do I need to do?
It is important to reflect on your current circumstances. (How to lose weight) Increase your daily exercise and activity. Improve the quality of your diet and reduce energy intake. These will all help the Xenical to be more effective. If you are taking Orlistat remember to take a multivitamin supplement.
Dosage? Orlistat is taken three times a day with a meal if the meal contains fat. It is not necessary to take a Xenical with a meal that does not contain fat or if you miss a meal. Taking too much fat in a meal may cause gas and your bowel motions to be loose and oily/fatty.
