... do I go to get this diet plan? Thanks
General considerations for when and how to take this medication include the following:
It comes in capsule form. It is 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 the dose of Xenical.
The medication should be combined with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet. Eating too much fat increases the risk of side effects. In general, you should try to limit your fat intake to less than 30% of your total daily calories.
Reconfirming the diet plan with the pharmacist who filled your Rx would also be a good idea, also please read the article on this link: www.nnuh.nhs.uk/viewdoc.asp?ID=754&t=Leaflet, hope this would be of help?
Take care, best wishes!
