What is Xenical ?
Xenical (orlistat) is the only prescription weight loss treatment available on the market in the UK. It is a gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor that works specifically on the absorption of dietary fats in the body. It can also help to prevent up to a third of the fat consumed from being absorbed by the body.
It is possible to buy Xenical online safely and on prescription after completing a quick online medical consultation here at Meds4All. This is used to assess suitability for the treatment and if approved, the doctor will issue a prescription that will be passed on to our UK pharmacy. The medication is then dispatched in discreet packaging for same or next day delivery (see eligibility).
How does Xenical work?
The active ingredient of Xenical – orlistat works directly on fat as it enters the digestive system, rather than affecting hormonal balances in the brain. Lipase is an enzyme that breaks down dietary fats in food, allowing them to be absorbed easily into the body. This treatment works effectively by preventing the action of lipase, which in effect prevents the fat from being absorbed into the body. This, coupled with exercise and the correct diet, could result in a more successful attempt at weight loss.
Xenical is specifically intended to help people who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above to lose weight. Sometimes patients with a BMI of 27 may be prescribed this medication if they are seen to have the risk of suffering from other diseases due to their size. These diseases include high cholesterol or high blood pressure. It has been known to also work well in obese people suffering from type 2 diabetes, as its combination with diabetes medication (e. g. Metformin), can help control the blood glucose levels in the body.
Xenical weight loss treatment has been proven to be a very effective treatment when dealing with obesity in people with a BMI of 30+. As it only works in the digestive tract, it is directly effective in helping with weight loss. Other benefits include:
- Average of 12 pounds loss after 5-8 months of use
- May decrease blood pressure, sugar levels and cholesterol
- Reduces fat absorption
- Is not addictive and has no effect on the brain
This treatment should not be seen as a replacement for conventional dieting and exercising, but should be used as an aid to support those forms of weight loss. To experience the best results, you must ensure that when you buy Xenical as a weight loss treatment, it is accompanied with a healthy lifestyle.
Unlike other weight loss treatments that work on suppressing the appetite or acting as food supplements, this treatment has no effect on the brain, but rather works directly on the fat in the food eaten. This means that the chance of side effects is reduced and results are expected faster when using Xenical.
Who can use it?
Xenical is a clinically approved prescription medication aimed at aiding weight loss, it is usually suitable for:
- Men or women with no digestive complications
- Those with a BMI of 30+, or a BMI of 27+ at risk of developing serious health issues
Unless you already know what your BMI is, you can use the BMI calculator in the weight loss page to gain an estimate. Be aware that the calculation is an estimate, and ensure you check with your doctor for an accurate reading to affirm whether you need to buy Xenical online.
You should ensure that you are willing to go the distance when looking to buy Xenical online. Exercising and dieting regularly is also essential in achieving the desired weight loss required.
Who cannot use it?
There are certain health conditions that may prevent the use of Xenical, making the person unsuitable. It is not yet known if it is safe and effective for children under the age of 12, but it is generally not prescribed for use by children. It may also not be suitable for:
- Women that are pregnant, lactating or have a reduced bile flow
- Those allergic to the active ingredient orlistat
- Those with food absorption problems
- People that are epileptic or have kidney problems
If you are allergic to the active ingredient (orlistat) contained in the treatment, then you should not buy Xenical online. If you already have it, then you should stop using it or contact your doctor immediately for further advice. If the treatment is deemed ineffective, please ensure you talk to your doctor or health care professional who may recommend an alternative therapy. Do not buy Xenical by any means contrary to a doctor’s recommendation.
Xenical should be taken with a well-balanced, calorie-controlled diet, rich in fruit and vegetables. The tablets are also to be:
- Taken orally, 3 times a day with meals
- Taken within an hour of meal consumption
- Taken with meals with fat content no higher than 30%
If you miss a meal, you don’t need to take another dose. If a multivitamin supplement is to be taken, ensure you take it at least 2 hours before or after you take a Xenical tablet. To gain the best benefit, avoid the intake of foods containing fat between meals, such as cakes, chocolate and savoury snacks. This treatment only works effectively with dietary fats.
This medication can interfere with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins in the stomach, so it is advised to take these vitamins with plenty of fruits and vegetables. During the use of this obesity treatment, if taken properly with exercise and healthy eating, you should lose at least 5% of your body weight. If this is not the case, then stop the treatment after this time and seek advice from your doctor.
Please remember that this medication should not be seen as a replacement for a calorie-controlled diet, but as a supplement towards achieving your weight loss objective.
As this is a prescription weight loss treatment, there is a slight chance of experiencing side effects when taking Xenical, as people react differently to the medication. These may include:
- Nausea, abdominal pain, an increase in bowel movements (with possible oily discharge and stool).
- Flatulence, headaches, infection of the upper respiratory tract, influenza, lowered blood sugar
Fortunately, these should disappear after a short while as the body gets used to Xenical. If symptoms do persist, please contact a doctor for further advice.
