The active ingredient in Xenical is called Orlistat. It works by attaching itself to enzymes in your digestive system (known as lipases). Once attached it then stops the enzymes from breaking down approximately a third of the fat you eat during a meal. This fat is then excreted from the body.This means that as your body is unable to take in some of the fat in the meal, it is increasing the effect of a calorie controlled diet
Xenical works with each meal it’s taken with; so if you eat a meal that contains no fat (or if you miss a meal), there’s no need to take any Xenical. Always take Xenical as per your doctor’s instructions. You should aim to lose around 5% of your weight in the first 12 weeks.
Xenical should always be taken exactly as it’s been prescribed by your GP or pharmacist. It typically comes in capsule rather than pill form. The typical dosage of Xenical is one 120mg capsule taken with water either before, during or after each of the day’s three main meals. Xenical should be taken in conjunction with a calorie controlled balanced diet which is rich in fruit and vegetables. If you haven’t lost at least 5% of your body weight after taking Xenical for 12 weeks, your doctor will stop the treatment.
If you miss or forget to take Xenical, take it as soon as you remember as long as it’s within an hour of your last meal. If you’ve missed several doses, please speak to your doctor.
