Xenical helps you to achieve weight loss without suppressing your appetite.It is one of the most successfull treatment for weightloss.
Xenical promotes weight loss, weight management and maintenance and reduction in weight regain and to improve obesity related disease factors when compared to diet alone.
How it works
Enzymes in your intestinal tract, called lipases, help digest (break down) fat. When you take Xenical with meals, Xenical attaches to the lipases and blocks them from breaking down some of the fat you have eaten. Xenical reduced the body’s ability to absorb fat by approximately 30 percent. While fat is an important component of a balanced diet, the consumption of excess fat in your daily diet, contributes to body weight. In most cases, weight loss is gradual. Obese patients treated with Xenical and a reduced-calorie diet for one year lost an average of 13.4 pounds while those on a reduced calorie diet alone, lost 5.8 pounds.
The recommended dose is one capsule by mouth with liquid at each main meal. You should use Xenical together with a nutritionally balanced, mildly reduced-calorie diet that contains no more than about 30 percent of calories from fat. It is packed in packets of 84 tabs.
Xenical interferes with your body’s absorption of some fat-soluble vitamins. Therefore, Xenical should be taken in conjunction with a daily multivitamin supplement containing vitamins D, E, K, and beta-carotene. These should be taken 2 hours either side of taking Xenical.
Since Xenical interferes with the absorption of fat, changes in bowel habits may be evident. Side effects generally occur within the first few weeks of treatment but tend to subside later in the treatment phase. These may include oily spotting, gas with discharge, oily or fatty stools and increased number of bowel movements. These bowel changes are a natural effect of blocking the fat from being absorbed and indicate that Xenical is working.
Obesity is second only to smoking as a cause of preventable death in the US, and is a major contributing factor to serious medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and other cardiovascular diseases. Relating to the seriousness of obesity or being overweight, this product should be used for anyone who is serious about weight loss, weight management, weight control and serious about their livelyhood
Who can use Xenical?
You’re only eligible to take Xenical if you have:
a BMI (body mass index) of 30 and over; or
a BMI of 27 and over with other risk factors like diabetes or high blood pressure.
Xenical isn’t currently recommended for children or teenagers under 18 years or adults over 74 years of age.
How do you get it?
Xenical is available from pharmacies. You don’t need a prescription, but before it can be sold pharmacists are supposed to assess you for suitability. They’re expected to check:
weight, height and BMI
health status (existence of conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, for example)
factors contributing to excess weight (including genetic influences, life states and events, and medical conditions or treatments).
If Xenical is dispensed, pharmacists should then give counselling on points including dosage, side effects and lifestyle modifications required (including diet and exercise).
However, we recommend seeing your doctor before getting Xenical. It’s always sensible to be fully checked out before trying any new medication – your GP is the best person to advise you on your situation and help you decide on the best and safest way to tackle your problem.
