About Xenical

  • How do I take Xenical? 

    Take one capsule one hour before or after a main meal, three times a day. If a meal is missed or contains very little fat Xenical should not be taken. You should never take more than one capsule at a time, as this does not increase effectiveness.

  • How effective is Xenical?

    Xenical is effective at helping obese or severely overweight people lose weight. It must be taken regularly and in conjunction with a low-calorie, low-fat diet in which no more than 30% of your daily calorie intake comes from fat. Remember that over-consumption of fat and calories may reduce any effect Xenical has.

  • What are the side effects of Xenical?

    There are some side effects associated with Xenical, the most common of which may include:

    • Headaches
    • Abdominal pain or discomfort
    • Flatulence
    • Oily or fatty stools
    • Liquid stools

    To reduce the risk of diarrhoea, try and spread your daily fat intake evenly across your meals and do not consume a high fat diet. For a full list of possible effects you should read the patient information leaflet that comes with the medication.

  • Can I take other medicines with Xenical?

    Certain drugs can interact with Xenical and cause a serious reaction, so please provide our doctors with a full list of our medicines when asked. You should also inform your doctor if you start taking any other medication while taking Xenical.
