Description

Orlistat (Xenical) blocks some fat from being absorbed by your body by blocking it from being digested.

With Xenical, you can lose weight through exercise, behavior change, and reduced-calorie diet programs. This medication helps those individuals seeking to lose weight.

Using Xenical can also prevent you from gaining back your lost weight. It is possible to reduce the health risks of obesity, such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure conditions, and a shorter life, by losing weight and keeping it off. For the body to absorb dietary fats, they must be broken down into smaller pieces.

Although Xenical is not a GLP-1, it has similar weight-loss effectiveness as Wegovy and Saxenda.

Xenical blocks the enzyme responsible for breaking down fats in your diet. During your bowel movements, this undigested fat is excreted from your body. You must limit your caloric intake with Orlistat since it does not block calorie absorption from sugars or other nonfat foods.

Warnings

In case of digestive disorders (problems absorbing food), this medicine should not be taken. Pregnant women and those with gallbladder problems should not take Xenical. If you have had an organ transplant, are using cyclosporine, or are not overweight, do not use it.

Xenical is only part of a comprehensive treatment program that includes diet, exercise, and weight control. All of your daily meals should have an equal amount of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Make sure you follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines closely.

Fat-rich diets should be avoided. It is possible to experience unpleasant side effects from Xenical if you consume high-fat meals together with it.

Be sure to mention to your prescriber if you are a diabetic and are taking insulin.
