About Xenical

Composition

One capsule contains:
Active substance: Orlistat – 120 mg.
Excipients: microcrystalline cellulose, sodium starch-glycolate, povidone, sodium lauryl sulfate, talc.

Form of release

Capsules 120 mg 21 in a blister pack of 1.2 or 4 blisters.
It is released on prescription.

Indications for use

Long-term therapy for obese patients or patients with overweight, including those associated with obesity risk factors, combined with a moderately hypocaloric diet.
In combination with hypoglycemic drugs (metformin, sulfonylureas and/or insulin preparations) or moderate hypocaloric diet in patients with type 2 diabetes with overweight or obesity.

Mode of application

The recommended dose of orlistat is one 120 mg capsule with each main meal (during meals or no later than one hour after a meal). If food intake is missed or if the food does not contain fat, then Xenical can also be missed.

The patient should receive a balanced, moderately hypocaloric diet containing no more than 30% of calories in the form of fats. The daily intake of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins must be divided into three main methods.

Increasing the dose of orlistat more than the recommended (120 mg 3 times a day) does not lead to an increase in its therapeutic effect.

The effect of orlistat in patients with liver or kidney damage and children has not been studied.

Additional information

Xenical is effective regarding long-term control of body weight (reduction in body weight and its maintenance at a new level, prevention of repeated weight gain).
Treatment with Xenical leads to an improvement in the profile of risk factors and diseases contributing to obesity, including hypercholesterolemia, type 2 diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, hyperinsulinemia, arterial hypertension, and a reduction in visceral fat.

When used in combination with such hypoglycemic drugs as metformin, sulfonylurea preparations and/or insulin in patients with type 2 diabetes with excessive body weight, Xenical, combined with a moderately hypocaloric diet, gives an additional improvement in the compensation of carbohydrate metabolism.

In clinical studies, in most patients the concentrations of vitamins A, D, E, K, and beta-carotene remained normal within two or three full years of orlistat therapy. To ensure adequate intake of all nutrients, multivitamins can be prescribed.

The patient should receive a balanced, moderately hypocaloric diet containing no more than 30% of calories in the form of fats. We recommend eating rich in fruits and vegetables. The daily intake of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins must be divided into three main methods.

The likelihood of adverse reactions from the gastrointestinal tract may increase if Xenical is taken amid a diet rich in fats (for example, 2000kcal / day, of which more than 30% is fat, which is about 67g of fat). Daily intake of fat should be divided into three main methods. If Xenical is taken with food, very rich in fat, the likelihood of gastrointestinal reactions increases.
In patients with diabetes mellitus type 2, weight loss during treatment with Xenical is accompanied by an improvement in the compensation of carbohydrate metabolism, which may or may require a reduction in the dose of hypoglycemic drugs.

    Xenical for Overweight

    Many side effects without any results! I have received from my family doctor Xenical since I had tried a lot but nothing really helped! Unfortunately, Xenical is no exception! I had inquired on the internet but the opinions were different so I wanted to try it. The side effects were exactly as described. As soon as I had eaten something that had only a small amount of fat, I was punished very badly. I had bad diarrhea and stomach cramps. During the whole time I took Xenical Pupsen was absolutely taboo and I always had to bring fresh clothes because it could always go in the pants. Even if I ate fat-free, I had severe flatulence. After 1 month without weight loss, I thought: well just needs his time. After 2 months without losing even 1 gram I gave up as it makes no sense. My conclusion: 60 euros for the pack is already too much but without success it is rausgeschmissen!

    Side effects: Diarrhea

    Xenical for Overweight

    I wanted to lose weight (from 71 kg to 60 kg. Big 1.69). The doctor has prescribed the drug ON MY WISH with no problem. Initially, I took 3 times a day. The side effects were fast and very strong. Since I’m extremely pain resistant, that did not matter to me much. My goal was to slim down and not slam! In addition, my cholesterol was extremely high. Less fat I could use well. Today, my cholesterol levels are in the normal range. SIDE EFFECTS; Greasy, liquid chairs; Very often. bloating; With yellow underwear in underwear … gastrointestinal discomfort; Strengthen stomach cramps. Diarrhea and a red burning anus. Ultimately I lost a maximum of 3 kilos with Xenical. Had I eaten less fries and chocolate cake I would have the same results. Today I weigh 63 kg without Xenical but with vegetable soup and fruit. I take it to Xenical at Christmas, Easter and all the other celebrations where eating is announced. Who wants to lose something (maximum 5 kg.) And has the appropriate small money, is an experience value. But who has TRUE weight problem should forget Xenical!

    Side effects: Diarrhea

    Xenical for Overweight

    I take Xenical 3x daily for a year. I did not lose weight very much, but neither did I reduce or change my diet. Those who eat a little less and leaner can lose weight faster with Xenical than without. The fact that the drug (120mg per capsule) immediately eliminates one-third of the fat eaten through the stool without spreading in the body, tyrannizes one of the sudden fat-stool diarrhea with a loud clamor quite considerably. So I avoid going to public or restroom toilets and eat nothing fat when eating outside. Even heavy flatulence makes life difficult. Although this decreases after several weeks of intake, but only disappears completely after discontinuation of the drug. For working people I can not recommend it, unless you avoid fats while eating. Certainly a part of the success is that one simply takes only lean things out of fear of the unpleasant side effects. Most of the time I woke up at 6 o’clock in the morning, because then announced a longer visit to the toilet, which makes me so awake that I can not sleep afterwards.

    Side effects: Diarrhea

    Xenical for Overweight

    I’ve been taking Xenical for about five weeks and lost nearly two pounds without starving. Before taking Xenical, I did a lot of research on the internet and repeatedly read articles about bad or embarrassing side effects. Strangely, the unpleasant side effects have not occurred to me. If you do not exceed 60 grams of fat a day, nothing is likely to happen. Personally, I think 60 grams of fat a day are quite a lot.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Xenical for Overweight

    first to my story: I have about 12 years ago without any medicine 34 Kg decreased. Since that time I also totally on a balanced diet. I totally abstain from high-calorie foods and do a lot of sports. As a result, I tend to grow faster and can not lose weight so easily. My doctor said my basal metabolic rate had decreased. So I have to eat about 1300 calories and I immediately see it on the scales. In the meantime, I have gained 7 kg, which I can eat by little and sports can not get down. So that’s why I got Xenical prescribed. Take it for a week. I had no side effects. I think if you eat low in calories (low in fat), you will be spared from the side effects. However, I have not yet put myself on the scales. I will weigh myself in 5 days, then look …

    Side effects: No side effects

    I’ve been taking Xenical for several years, but only occasionally on a fatty meal to keep my weight off. Am and was never overweight, but rather tend to feed me some extra pounds and I think Xenical is a good solution. My doctor will prescribe it for me. I’ve also brought alli, is over the counter, but only half of the drug contained. I take Xenical at least 3 times a week, sometimes not for weeks at a time.

    Side effects: No side effects
