What is Xenical?

Xenical is a medicine that is used to treat obesity. It helps you to avoid gaining any further weight but will not necessarily cause you to lose any existing weight. 

How does it work?

It works by limiting how much fat is absorbed by the digestive system from the food you've eaten. It blocks about one-third of the fat by attaching to the enzymes called lipases in the digestive system. It then works to make sure the enzymes don't break down some of the fat you have eaten during your meal. Since the undigested fat cannot be absorbed in the body, it is eliminated from the body as waste. 

Is Xenical suitable for me?

The medicine may affect the dose of other medicines you are taking. Make sure you speak to your doctor about any other medicines you are taking before beginning this medication. Xenical works best when combined with exercise and a nutrition program recommended by a doctor or dietician.
