Important Note about prescription drugs and 'without prescription'
Uses of Xenical (Orlistat)
Xenical is a prescription weight-control medication useful for the long-term treatment of
significant obesity. Xenical can also help to improve risk factors, such as high blood
pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar which, if not treated, could lead to other
diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. Xenical is a weight loss medication that
targets the absorption of fat in your body rather than suppressing the appetite. Each
Xenical capsule contains 120 mg of the active substance orlistat, which acts as a lipase
inhibitor. Dietary fats are inhibited from being absorbed and this allows about 30% of the
fat eaten in the meal to pass through the gut undigested. This helps to reduce and
maintain body weight, as well as to minimize any weight regain.
How to take Xenical (Orlistat)
Xenical is taken with each meal (three times daily). The daily fat intake should be divided
equally between these three meals to enable the benefit from Xenical's actions. Xenical
should be swallowed with water.
Side effects of Xenical (Orlistat)
Loose stools and increased gas or flatulence. These symptoms are generally mild, occur
at the beginning of Xenical treatment, go away after a short period of time and are
particularly experienced after meals containing high levels of fat. Normally, these
symptoms disappear if you continue Xenical treatment and keep to your recommended
diet. AN ALLERGIC REACTION to Xenical is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention
if it occurs. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, or
trouble breathing. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor,
nurse, or pharmacist.
Xenical can cause changes in your bowel habits, such as fatty or oily stools, due to the
elimination of undigested fat in your stool. Xenical reduces the absorption of supplements
of some fat soluble nutrients, particularly beta-carotene and vitamin E. You should
therefore follow your doctor's advice in taking a well balanced diet rich in fruit and
vegetables. DO NOT TAKE Xenical if you are allergic to it or are allergic to any ingredient
in this product. DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED DOSE. Exceeding the recommended
dose will not make you lose more weight and may increase side effects.
Xenical may reduce the absorption of necessary fat-soluble vitamins. To ensure
that you are receiving adequate amounts of these vitamins, ask your doctor or
pharmacist about the use of a vitamin supplement that would be right for you. KEEP
ALL DOCTOR AND LABORATORY APPOINTMENTS while you are using this medicine.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN TAKING ANY NEW MEDICINE, either prescription or over-the-counter,
check with your doctor or pharmacist. This includes any other medicines used for weight
loss/management. FOR WOMEN: IF YOU PLAN ON BECOMING PREGNANT, discuss with
your doctor the benefits and risks of using Xenical during pregnancy.
Xenical is not recommended for use during pregnancy. IT IS UNKNOWN IF Xenical IS
EXCRETED in breast milk. DO NOT BREAST-FEED while taking Xenical.
IF YOU HAVE DIABETES, Xenical may affect your blood sugar. Check blood sugar
levels closely and ask your doctor before adjusting the dose of your diabetes medicine.
Tell your doctor of all prescription and non-prescription medication you use, especially of:
cyclosporine, "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), drugs for diabetes (e.g., insulin),
other drugs used for weight loss. Cyclosporine should be taken at least 2 hours before
or after orlistat to assure maximum absorption of the cyclosporine into your bloodstream.
Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room
Do not share Xenical with others. Follow your doctor-approved nutritional,
reduced-calorie diet containing about 30 percent calories from fat. Also, exercise is
recommended; however, first consult your doctor or pharmacist.
If you miss a dose, do not double the next dose. Instead, skip the missed dose
and resume your usual dosing schedule.
Store at room temperature (77 degrees F, 25 degrees C), away from sunlight and
moisture. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
