Xenical Diet Pills

Xenical® (orlistat) is a medication often prescribed as a weight loss aid. It is specifically approved for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater or a BMI of 27 or greater if you have certain risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.
The diet pills are only available in one strength (120 mg capsules). They are taken by mouth with each fat-containing meal, up to three times per day. If you miss a meal, or if you have a meal without any fat, you should skip your dosage. Since eating too much fat increases the risk of side effects, you should try to limit your fat intake to less than 30 percent of your total daily calories.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Xenical. In clinical studies, side effects that affected the digestive system were the most common. Some of the most common problems included:
  • Oily spotting (uncontrolled anal seepage of oil)
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Urgent need to have a bowel movement
  • Gas with discharge (of either oil or stool).
