Generic Xenical is not an appetite suppressant, but it does influence the digestion of dietary fats and supports smooth and healthy weight loss. According to medical studies of Xenical treatment, weight loss of more than 10% was reported.
How to take the medication
Generic Xenical should only be used as recommended by the doctor. Your drug will also come with the instructions for proper use and you need to adhere to these. You will also be recommended a low-calorie diet, exercise and weight control. You need to adhere to these and think of them as inseparable part of your weight loss program. You need to be extra careful about the diet and the foods that you intake. Your doctor may also recommend that you take certain mineral and vitamin supplements.
Orlistat directly influences digestion. Fat-digesting enzymes are inhibited, which allows for the disposal of excess, undigested dietary fat. Because of the reduced fat supply the body will lose weight effectively and sustainably.
Up to now no pharmacological interactions have been proven. However you should submit to doctor supervision if you are taking antidiabetics simultaneously. The same applies to treatments with anticoagulant substances. Orlistat may decrease the blood level of the immunosuppressive Cyclosporine so that you should have this value monitored as well.
It is not recommended to take an appetite suppressant at the same time.
Side Effects of Xenical
Because Xenical works by blocking the absorption of dietary fat, it is likely that you will experience some changes in bowel habits. These generally occur during the first weeks of treatment; however, they may continue throughout your use of Xenical.
These changes may include:
gas with discharge
urgent need to go to the bathroom
oily or fatty stools
an oily discharge
increased number of bowel movements
an inability to control bowel movements
Due to the presence of undigested fat, the oil seen in a bowel movement may be clear or have a coloration such as orange or brown.
Proper storage of Xenical
Store Xenical below 77 degrees F (25 degrees C). Brief storage at temperatures between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 and 30 degrees C) is permitted. Store in a tightly closed container. Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Xenical out of the reach of children and away from pets.
