Reviews for Xenical
Review by Anonymous:
For Obesity: Feels like something running around in my stomach, really bad wind, scared to poop in case of an accident. Couldn't sleep until 5am for fear of an accident in bed. Had two accidents already in 3 days. Oily discharge leaking and making my underwear smell bad as well, which must be noticeable. Haven't taken my second dose today. Want to give this a fair trial but unable to leave the house for fear of accidents. Will see if half the 120mg dosage works better on me.

For Obesity: I started using Xenical one week ago and am already seeing the difference by the way my clothes fit. The side effects are not bad compared to the results.

For Obesity: I found Xenical to work very well. True it did have side effects, but that was a good motivator to make healthier food choices. When I was food wise, I didn't have any problems. I lost 10 pounds in 1.5 months walking 10,000 steps per day and eating healthy. I did get the headaches associated with the side effects, but they weren't as bad as my normal sinusitis headaches, so it was do-able. I would recommend this to anyone in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise. Exercise is a must, because this does not speed your metabolism up. Have faith, stay strong and you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to.

For Obesity: Im 33 and I've just been prescribed Xenical today and plan to start using it first thing in this morning. The comments posted have given me some confidence for using this drug. I just don't look forward to the extra bathroom visits. I will keep on using the website and who knows this time next year I will be on my way to my target weight. Starting at 242 lbs and target is 185 lbs.

Review by cindypoohbear:
For Obesity: I went to my doctor in april of 2000, my weight was 218 lbs and I am only 5 ft 1 inch, so you can imagine me being just as round as tall. I took the pills 3 x a day and walked 1 to 2 miles twice a day. I was down to 135 lbs by the following summer of 2001. I did put on some weight starting in 2003 to 2004 as I had got married and my whole cooking habits changed. I am walking on my treadmill daily now and eating better. Trying to take it off again.

Review by Wendy Miami:
For Obesity: Xenical made look skinnier than ever. I also controlled my calorie intake while i was taking them. I went from 140 to 125. i was 125lbs when i was 15 yrs old, now I am 32. the issue with the bothrooms trips is true and kind of uncomfortable but but you will learn to deal with situation.

For Obesity: Xenical really helped me, but some of the bowel problems I had made it marginal. I was hit by all the side effects.
