Xenical


Xenical, otherwise known as Orlistat in its generic form, works by reducing the amount of fat absorbed during digestion. Orlistat has successfully shown many obese people in the UK how to lose weight fast.

Xenical

 

What Is Xenical?

Xenical (Orlistat 120mg) is a prescription medication that can help in the treatment of weight-loss. Xenical prevents your body from absorbing the fat from the food you eat. By reducing the amount of fat which is absorbed, Xenical can help you to lose weight more easily.
It works in your digestive system to block about one-third of the fat in the food you eat from being digested. Xenical attaches to the enzymes in your digestive system (lipases) and blocks them from breaking down some of the fat you have eaten during your meal. The undigested fat cannot be absorbed and is eliminated by your body. Xenical is indicated in the treatment of obesity in conjunction with a low calorie intake diet.

Xenical vs Alternative Weight Loss Medications

There are typically two different kinds of weight-loss prescription medications. Some medications are appetite suppressants. Xenical is another form of weight-loss medication that works in your digestive system to block about one third of the fat in the food you eat from being digested.
There are hundreds of weight loss products on the market, but few have been clinically proven to be safe and effective.

Effectiveness

In clinical studies, almost two-thirds of people treated with Xenical weight loss pills plus diet successfully lost at least 5% of their body weight after 2 years. In comparison, only half of the people treated with diet alone managed to lose 5% of their weight.
Weight loss with Xenical and a healthy diet also improves a number of weight-related health risks. Studies show that weight loss with Xenical can:

  • Decrease total and LDL cholesterol (level of low-density lipoprotein-also known as bad cholesterol)
  • Improve ratio of bad to good cholesterol (LDL/HDL cholesterol)
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Reduce levels of insulin (hormone that allows glucose or sugar to enter the body's cells), high levels of which are associated with coronary heart disease
  • Reduce the risk or delay the progression to type 2 diabetes in patients

How to Take Xenical

The recommended dose is one 120-mg capsule by mouth with liquid at each main meal that contains fat. You should take Xenical up to three times a day in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet. Each time you take Xenical, your nutritionally balanced meal should contain no more than about 30% of calories from fat. You should evenly divide your daily intake of fat, carbohydrates and protein over three main meals. Take Xenical during meals or up to 1 hour after a meal. If you occasionally miss a meal or have a meal without fat, you can omit your dose of Xenical. Doses above 120 mg three times daily have not been shown to provide an additional weight-loss benefit.
You should try to follow a healthy eating plan, such as one from which no more than 30% of calories come from fat. Following this eating plan will help you lose weight while decreasing some of the possible gastrointestinal effects you may experience while taking Xenical. Your doctor may need to adjust your calorie restriction and/or your activity level, including reasonable exercise.
Because Xenical interferes with your body's absorption of some fat-soluble vitamins, you should take a daily multivitamin supplement that contains vitamins A, D, E and K and beta carotene once a day at least 2 hours before or after taking Xenical, such as at bedtime.

Targets

When you start taking Xenical you will be given a weight loss target for the first 3 months. This target is 5% of your weight. If you succeed in losing 5% of your weight, you will be eligible to continue taking Xenical. Pharmacists can supply Xenical for up to two years.
Each time Xenical is supplied you will need to supply your pharmacist with your current weight. If your weight goes up in any three months, Xenical will need to be stopped. If you lose enough weight for your BMI to fall below 28, Xenical can no longer be supplied.
Some people do not succeed in losing weight with Xenical. These people should not be disheartened. They can have a break of 6 months and try again later, or see a doctor or a weight loss clinic as alternatives. Losing weight, like many things that are hard to achieve, takes perseverance and resolve, so do not give up.

Side Effects

Side effects of taking Xenical are usually mild and are not experienced by all people. Common side-effects include; headache, abdominal pain/discomfort, urgent or increased need to open the bowels, flatulence (wind) with discharge, oily discharge, oily or fatty stools, liquid stools, low blood sugar levels (experienced by some people with type 2 diabetes).
Reducing the amount of fat in the diet is likely to reduce the digestive side effects.
