Xenical 120mg Capsules reviews
Xenical 120mg Capsules FAQs
Xenical capsules contain a dietary fat binder, that helps to bind around one third of the fat you consume and prevent it from being absorbed.
In adults and children 18 years and over, the dose of Xenical is 1 capsule up to three daily, with or up to one hour after fat-containing meals. You should not take more than three Xenical capsules in a 24-hour period. You do not need to take a Xenical capsule if you have a meal containing no fat, it will have no effect.
We do not advise using other slimming treatments or tablets with Xenical. You should follow a strict regime of diet and exercise whilst taking Xenical pills to get the most out of them. You may also consider taking a multivitamin supplement at bedtime to ensure you are still getting all the essential vitamins and minerals required by your body.
Xenical 120mg capsules are an prescription-only weight loss aid. For that reason, to ensure the safety of our patients and the legal operating of our pharmacy, we only supply a maximum of 3 months treatment at one time. Xenical treatment is normally judged for effectiveness after 1-3 months on the amount of weight you have managed to lose. This means that if you do not find Xenical as effective as you would like, you are not stuck with an excess of medication. If you are happy with the results you can log in and re-order another supply, provided you are still losing weight and your BMI is above the treatment threshold.
You should take Xenical capsules with a fat-containing meal, or up to one hour afterwards. If your meal contains no fat or is a small snack, there is no need to take an Xenical capsule.
Yes, as long as you are buying from a website that is a legally operating and regulated pharmacy it is perfectly safe to buy Xenical online. The Independent Pharmacy is an NHS Online Pharmacy based in Bristol and has all the necessary regulation to be able to safely provide convenient access to genuine prescription treatments through our Online Pharmacy & Online Doctor.

XENICAL VS DUROMINE
Duromine and Xenical are two of the most popular drugs for weight loss, though they come from different pharmacological groups. Duromine is generally cheaper than Xenical, but has more contraindications and can cause more side effects. Xenical is prescribed for weight loss in patients with BMI of 27 and above – for Duromine the BMI can be slightly lower.
XENICAL VS ALLI
Xenical and Alli are very similar. Xenical offers a higher prescribed dose (120mg) of Orlistat, while Alli (available over-the-counter) and contains around half that. The recommended dose for each is the same, one capsule three times a day with meals.
XENICAL VS LESOFAT
Lesofat and Xenical are the same thing: Lesofat is simply a branded version of Orlistat – the active ingredient in Xenical.
XENICAL VS REDUCTIL
They are both anti-obesity drugs, but they work in different ways. Xenical works directly on the digestive system, blocking the action of gastric and pancreatic lipases that break down and absorb fat molecules. Reductil, on the other hand works as an appetite suppressor. Its active ingredient is sibutramine hydrochloride – it aids weight loss by altering the brain’s neurotransmitters.
XENICAL VS PHENTERMINE
Again, a similar case to Reductil. Both Phentermine and Xenical are taken to aid weight loss, but Phentermine is another anorexiant (structurally similar to amphetamine)and works by suppressing the appetite and speeding up the metabolism. Xenical works by reducing the absorption of fats.
You should not take any of these medications in combination, unless instructed to do so by your doctor.
As with many drugs, there are mixed reviews and stories about Xenical online, particularly on weight loss forums. Some experience side effects such as loose or oily stools, but they generally clear up after the first few weeks. Some women also find that their period arrives late, or they miss a period, when they first start taking the tablets. Generally, according to several reviews, patients lost around one stone (just over 6 kilos) in the first month taking Xenical.
Xenical contains Orlistat, which is used in tandem with a calorie-controlled diet to help people lose weight. It’s particularly useful in helping those who struggle with losing weight through diet and exercise alone, or who suffer from high weight-related risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
You only have to read online reviews to see that Xenical has worked successfully for a lot of people. What’s more, following others’ weight loss stories can also be a good source of motivation on your weight loss journey.
Xenical does work in a majority of cases, but it isn’t for everyone. It typically stops the absorption of around 30-40% of fat from your diet, which is then passed through the digestive system. It is most often prescribed for people with a BMI of 28 or above.
Xenical is a prescription-only medicine, which means it can’t be bought over the counter. But it can be bought online, following an online consultation with one of our UK doctors. For those looking to buy Orlistat tablets over the counter, Alli capsules are available without a prescription, as they come at a lower dosage of 60mg.
Xenical works by binding with dietary fat to prevent all of it from being absorbed into the bloodstream. Weight loss is achieved when we absorb fewer calories than we burn up. Fat, of course, is very calorie-dense. By hindering fat absorption, Xenical reduces your overall calorie intake and therefore increases your chances of losing weight.
Xenical has some common side effects, which include:
- Stomach cramps
- Loose or oily stools (and needing to go more often)
- Throat or sinus infections
- Vitamin deficiency, particularly A, D and E
Less common side effects include:
- Muscle pain
- Rectal irritation or soreness
