What is Xenical and what is it used for?
Xenical 120mg hard capsules are an effective weight loss medication used to treat obesity and reduce overall weight gain.
Through clinical trials, Xenical was proven to block around one third of all fat consumed with meals. Working directly in the stomach, Xenical can help to make weight loss more effective than with a healthy diet and increased exercise alone.
Patients are expected to lose around 5 to 10 percent of their initial body weight. The effect of Xenical can also help to develop a better consideration and understanding of how much you eat and what you are consuming, eventually lowering your intake of snacks and unhealthy food.
Xenical can only be purchased by those classed as obese with a BMI of over 30, or a BMI of 28 with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, cornary heart diesease and even some types of cancer. Speak to one of our consultants during our consultation process to find out more.
Xenical is a branded medication that contains the active ingredient orlistat 120mg. Generic orlistat is also available from our online clinic service and is cheaper than the branded version.
How does Xenical work?
The body needs to break down dietary fats into smaller pieces before absorbing them. Xenical works by obstructing the enzymes that break down the fats in your diet, halting the absorption process.
Interrupting the enzymes means that any undigested fat is then flushed through the bowel. However, it is still possible to gain calories from sugar and other non-fat sources, so it’s important to lead a healthy diet whilst taking this treatment.
Xenical 120mg reviews
The reviews of Xenical 120mg are generally positive, although many people report side effects surrounding their bowel movement. Most reviewers remind the reader that it is important to consume less fat to avoid these side effects.
However, reviewers almost universally stated that they lost weight, some stating that they found it much easier to lose weight through this method than any kind of fad diet. Most reviewers also recommend an exercise programme to make fat loss even easier.
Can you buy Xenical over the counter?
You can only use Xenical if a pharmacist or a doctor deems it necessary. In most cases, Xenical is only available on prescription. Whilst you can buy Xenical through our website, a short consultation is needed. Provided you have no health conditions that will interfere with Xenical and are not on any other medication; you can buy Xenical online at our pharmacy.

Some people may find Xenical is not the right treatment for their weight loss and diet plan. Alternative treatments for weight loss in the UK are the appetite suppressant injections Wegovy and Saxenda.
These are weight loss pens that are injected into the upper arm, thigh or abdomen. Wegovy is injected once weekly while Saxenda is injected once daily. These may be suitable alternatives if you experience side effects from Xenical. Like Xenical, Wegovy and Saxenda are prescription-only medicines and is available only after an online assessment.
Patient Information Leaflet
Xenical dose amount and how to take it
To get the desired effects from Xenical capsules, we advise you follow the steps below:
- The optimum time to take orlistat is during your meal or an hour post-meal
- One Xenical 120mg capsule should be taken three times a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with a glass of water
- Avoid heavy meals rich in fat as this may increase your chance of side effects
By following the outlined guidance below from medical professionals, you will reduce the likelihood of undesirable symptoms and side-effects, and therefore make your weightloss more efficient.
- Not only does a low-fat diet help to lose weight, but many side effects significantly reduce when monitoring the fat and oil content of your meals
- Xenical is most effective when taken in conjunction exercise and a low-fat diet
- Closely monitor your weight loss during the first 12 weeks of treatment with Xenical. If you have lost less than 5% of your starting weight, you should consider alternative treatments. (Smaller amounts of weight loss may be acceptable for people with preexisting conditions such as diabetes.)
How to get the best results from Xenical
To get the best results from Xenical, make sure that less than 30% of the calories you consume come from fat. Also, it’s important that you make sure to factor in a balanced amount of carbohydrates, fat, and protein.
It is also recommended to take some fat-soluble vitamins, as Xenical can get in the way of these being absorbed. You should take a multivitamin supplement with A, D, E and K vitamins. Do not take this at the same time as Orlistat - make sure it is at least two hours before the meal or two hours after.
It’s also very important to consume a generally healthy diet and keep exercising whilst taking Xenical.
Please note that this medication is only for those who are struggling with obesity; if you just need to lose a little weight, you can usually manage this through diet and exercise.
How long does Xenical take to work?
With a controlled diet and regular exercise, you should start to see results within two weeks whilst taking Xenical 120mg capsule. Speak to your doctor about how long you should take the medication for as it differs for everyone and depends on your BMI and body fat percentage. Remember, Xenical works in conjunction with a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Xenical is suitable for most obese adults. If you have any of the following conditions, speak to your doctor before trying this medication:

- Underactive thyroid
- Kidney problems, including kidney stones

Xenical Side Effects
There are not many side effects associated with Xenical capsules but your body can experience a change in bowel movements. As 30% of fat isn't being absorbed, yet passed through your system, it comes out in stools and flatulence as an oily discharge.
This highlights the importance of altering your diet to only contain low-fat/ low-oil foods as then, this side effect is significantly reduced. If you eat high calorie, greasy or oily meals whilst taking orlistat, this can result in uncontrollable bowel movements.
Other common side effects include:
- Increased bowel movements
- Fatty stool
- Intestinal gas
- Less bowel control
Side effects are typically uncommon or milder in people who eat less fat. If these side effects feel severe or if your body does not feel like it is getting used to them, speak to your doctor.
Rare side effects include:
- Nausea/ vomiting
- Dark urine
- Yellowing of the skin and eyes
- Pain in the stomach and abdominal area -these could all indicate liver disease.
- Pain whilst urinating
- Back pain
- Bloody or pink urine - these could all indicate kidney stone
If you experience any of these side effects, stop taking Orlistat and speak to your doctor immediately. If your symptoms are severe and you can't get hold of your doctor, go to A&E or seek medical attention immediately.
Allergic reactions to Orlistat are infrequent, but they are possible nonetheless. If you experience any of these allergic reaction symptoms, call 999 or go to A&E. Make sure that you take the leaflet from your medication with you to A&E to help the medical professionals treat you.
- A blistered, red, or swollen rash anywhere on the body
- Itching and swelling, particularly if it is on your face
