What is Xenical (Orlistat) used for?

Xenical (Orlistat) is used as a treatment for obesity. Patients who are prescribed this drug are normally told to eat a low calorie diet to help them lose weight. It is normally prescribed to obese patients who suffer from a condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure or high levels of cholesterol. This drug is a type of lipase inhibitor, which blocks the enzyme responsible for breaking down fats, thereby allowing the fat eaten to be passed out in the patient's stool.

How should I use Xenical (Orlistat)?

Patients who have been prescribed Xenical (Orlistat) capsules should follow the instructions provided by their physician. You may be told to take 3 capsules per day, with your main meals, or within 1 hour of eating. However, if you miss a meal, or if your meal does not contain any fat, you should skip that dose.

What are the side effects of Xenical (Orlistat)?

Patients taking Xenical (Orlistat) may notice:

  • Gas
  • Oily or fatty stools
  • Trouble maintaining control of bowel movements
  • Painful rectum
  • Stomach pain

It is important for patients to report any side effects to their physician, and also to seek immediate medical attention if any other more serious side effects occur.
