Xenical is an oral prescription medication that helps the body to eliminate unwanted fat. Xenical blocks up to 33% of the fat in the food you eat, this encourages your body to activate your own fat centers and leads to healthy weight loss over time. Remember to consult a doctor before considering any new weight-loss program including Xenical.
Clinical studies have shown that over a 1-year trial period, people who used Xenical along with a low calorie diet and moderate exercise, lost more weight than those who did not use Xenical. The average weight loss for the control group (just diet and exercise) was approximately 6 lbs. Those who added Xenical to their weight loss program lost significantly more weight, approximately 13.5lbs.
To understand how Xenical works, it is important to understand how the body processes fat. In the digestive system, enzymes called lipases help to break down fat, allowing your body to absorb and process it. When taken with a meal, Xenical attaches to lipases and stops them from breaking down the fat you consume. Undigested fat cannot be absorbed and is eliminated during bowel movements. Xenical is able to block up to one-third of the fat in the food you eat.
It is recommended that you take one 120mg capsule orally with liquid, during each main meal that contains fat, or up to an hour after you’ve eaten. Xenical is most effective when taken three times daily with a reduced calorie diet. Each meal should contain no more than 30 percent of its calories from fat. Daily intake of fat, carbohydrates and protein should be evenly divided over three main meals. You may omit your dose of Xenical if you occasionally miss a meal or have one that does not contain fat.
Common side-effects associated with Xenical may include: abdominal discomfort or pain, anxiety, back pain, diarrhea, dizziness, oily discharge, gas with fecal discharge, fatty or oily stools, fecal urgency or incontinence. You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience any SEVERE side effects, such as: severe or persistent stomach pain, or an allergic reaction indicated by rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing or tightness in the chest swelling of the mouth, lips, face or tongue.Accessrx.com also carries these products:
