What is Xenical?

Xenical® (orlistat) is currently the only prescription weight loss treatment available to order in the UK to help people with a BMI (body mass index) over 30 and is commonly referred to as a weight loss pill or slimming pill.

Unlike most past weight loss medications, this clinically proven medication works directly in the stomach and doesn't influence the hormonal balances in the brain. Xenical tablets work by preventing up to 30% of the fat you consume per meal from being absorbed. In clinical trials, this medication has proven to be very effective, and helped participants lose between 5% and 10% of their body weight.

There is no doubt that following a healthy, balanced diet and doing a reasonable amount of exercise is the only way to lose weight and keep it off over the long term. However, if your health is at risk and you are struggling to lose weight, using a quick, safe and effective weight loss treatment can help make your efforts more successful.

What are the benefits of Xenical?

Xenical (orlistat) is the only approved prescription medication for weight loss available to buy in the UK. If you have struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise alone, it can help to speed up your weight loss efforts by preventing up to a third of the fat in your diet from being absorbed. This medication's active ingredient, orlistat, works in the digestive system to directly aid weight loss. This is different to previous weight loss medications, which worked to control appetite by working in the brain.

In clinical studies, people taking the medication managed to lose almost twice as much weight as those who were only dieting and exercising. Almost 70% of users lost a substantial amount of their body weight after just three months and dropped 19lbs within a year. Other studies have shown that almost two-thirds of people treated with Xenical weight loss pills alongside a diet plan successfully lost an even greater amount of their body weight after 2 years.

What have studies shown?

Xenical (orlistat) is proven to have a significant effect on reducing the weight of people who use it alongside lifestyle changes, as indicated in the graph below, which shows the average weight loss percentage during clinical trials.

In clinical studies carried out, Xenical 120mg has not just an effect on the weight, but also other positive secondary effects on overall health. a positive effect in reducing the total cholesterol.

Risk Factor Xenical 120 mg Placebo
Total Cholesterol -2.0% +5.0%
LDL-Cholesterol -4.0% +5.0%
HDL-Cholesterol +9.3% +12.8%
LDL/HDL -0.37 -0.20
Triglycerides +1.34% +2.9%
Systolic Blood Pressure (mm Hg) -1.01 +0.58
Diastolic Blood Pressure (mm Hg) -1.19 +0.46
Waist Circumference, cm -6.45 -4.04
Hip Circumference, cm -5.31 -2.96

As shown in the table above, Xenical reduced the total cholesterol percentage in the participants whilst the placebo group experienced an overall increase (which may be deemed normal). A positive outlook was on the decrease of LDL cholesterol ('bad' cholesterol) and an increase of HDL (good) cholesterol in the participants of the study.

As well as the positive effects on the cholesterol in the body, Xenical has also been found to be beneficial in reducing the fasting glucose and insulin as well as marginally reducing the systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels. This could indicate positive results for those who also suffer from type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. A higher reduction in waist and hip circumference also indicate a reduced risk of associated health complication.

It is already well known and documented, the relationship between obesity and the increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Another study carried out aimed to show that by adding a weight-reducing agent such as Xenical alongside to lifestyle changes, the likelihood of type 2 diabetes would be severely lowered compared to normal weight loss efforts.

The results showed after the 4 years treatment that diabetes occurred in 9.0% of participants treated with the placebo, compared to only 6.2% who were treated with orlistat. Mean weight loss after the 4 years was also greater with orlistat (5.8 vs. 3.0 kg with placebo).

How does Xenical work?

Xenical tablets contain an active ingredient called orlistat, which is a lipase inhibitor. Lipases are the enzymes in your digestive system that breaks down fat so it can be absorbed by the body. Orlistat (the active ingredient in Xenical) attaches itself to these lipases, preventing them from doing their work. This stops over up to a third of the fat you consume from being digested. This fat, then passes through your system and is expelled via your regular bowel movements.

What are the precautions of Xenical?

It is recommended that you shouldn't buy Xenical (orlistat) 120mg capsules if you are under 18, have a BMI (body mass index) of under 30, are breastfeeding or pregnant. People who suffer from cholestasis and chronic malabsorption would also be advised to seek an alternative treatment.

How do I take Xenical?

The recommended dosage is one 120 mg capsule by mouth with water immediately before or during each of your daily meals, or up to an hour afterwards, three times a day. This medication needs to be taken as part of a well-balanced, calorie controlled diet and regular exercise regime. You should also take a daily vitamin tablet, so that your body is not deprived of any vital nutrients that come from fat. If you take any vitamin supplements, you should wait for two hours after taking Xenical tablets before you take your vitamin.

Step 1 – increase exercise
Step 2 – exercise + diet
Step 3 – exercise + diet + medication

Taking Xenical requires a healthy diet and lifestyle, like any other weight loss plan. This will not only change your existing lifestyle for the better but will optimise your time using Xenical to the fullest.

Follow a healthy, calorie-controlled diet

For the best results using Xenical, you should follow a diet and sensible meal plan. For example...

  • it is advised that 30% of your daily intake of calories should be fat.
  • In order for Xenical to prevent all the fat from being absorbed effectively, the consumed fat should be divided equally between your three main meals.
  • So if you have a daily limit of 1,800 calories, 540 calories per day and 180 calories per meal should be fat.
  • The reason for this is that the medication cannot block an entire day's worth of fat with just one dose. Very high fatty foods should, therefore, be avoided.

Create your own simple exercise regime

Always start off easy and increase the intensity as you go on...

  • Establish exercise that you enjoy and incorporate small factors such as walking part of your commute into your existing lifestyle.
  • If you already go to the gym, walk, jog or do some form of exercise, then you can restructure this routine by increasing the amount you do and setting goals.
  • If you don't do any exercise at all, then find something that you can enjoy so that you will be able to maintain the routine even after you stop taking medication.
  • Exercise is a very important aspect not only of losing weight but also of leading a healthy lifestyle.
  • A fit and healthy body decrease your chance of developing diseases, heart problems and joint conditions. A healthy body is the best weapon when it comes to fighting off diseases. To achieve the best results when taking Xenical, an exercise routine should be followed.

What are the side effects of Xenical?

As with most prescription medications, some side effects may occur whilst taking Xenical tablets. As all people react differently to medications, the degree of severity of Xenical side effects may vary from person to person. Some people may suffer greatly while others may not experience any side effects at all.

The most common side effects associated with the Xenical capsule are linked to its effect on the digestive system, but the chances of suffering from these symptoms will be greatly reduced by following a doctor's recommendations and consuming a low-fat diet. Common side effects may include flatulence, discharge, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, low blood sugar, bloating, tiredness, and incontinence. Very rare side effects can potentially include rectal bleeding, hepatitis and blistering. Allergic reactions can also occur, such as itching, rashes, nausea or breathing difficulties, but these have been reported only occasionally. If any of these possible allergic reactions occur, you should contact a doctor and stop taking Xenical pills immediately.

Research analysing the duration of Xenical and Placebo use with the adverse effects registered by the participants suggests a higher prevalence of side effects in the first year of use compared to the second year. This can be put down to the medical function of prescription treatments. As the body becomes more accustomed to the active ingredient and chemical compounds, adverse effects are less likely to be present:

In the first year of use, the highest recorded adverse effects by the participants were headaches, influenza and abdominal pain. Although this affected between 20-40% of those using Xenical, the differences were marginal compared to those using the placebo. It was clear to see that the treatment only slightly increased the risk of these side effects, but did not stimulate a specific side effect above those experienced by the placebo group.

Year 2 showed a general reduction or absence of many adverse effects, with the highest side effect registered associated with 'upper respiratory infection' (which could be linked to general seasonal changes and other conditions such as asthma). Overall it seems that the medication works well in users and does not pose much of an adverse risk. It is essential though that a doctor is consulted whilst using this treatment to ensure that it is yielding the necessary results.
