What is Xenical?
Xenical is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Roche. Xenical is a reversible inhibitor of gastrointestinal lipases used for the management of obesity, including weight loss and body weight control when used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and physical activity. Xenical is also used to reduce the risk of weight regain after prior weight loss.
Xenical is used for patients with a body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 30 kg/m 2 or greater than or equal to 27 kg/m 2 if other risk factors such as hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, or dyslipidemia are present.
What doses of Xenical are available?
Xenical is available in capsule form, in the following doses: 120 mg.
Take one 120-mg capsule three times a day with each main meal containing fat (during or up to 1 hour after the meal). Spread your daily intake of fat, carbohydrate, and protein over three main meals. Xenical reduces the absorption of some fat-soluble vitamins and betacarotene. Take a multivitamin supplement containing fat-soluble vitamins to ensure adequate nutrition. Take the vitamin supplement at least 2 hours before or after Xenical.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Xenical active ingredients
Xenical contains orlistat as the active ingredient. Orlistat blocks the enzyme that breaks down dietary fats in your diet. Undigested fat then passes out of your body in bowel movements.
