Studies have shown that Xenical helps people lose weight. After six months of taking the drug while dieting, people lost an average of 12.4 pounds (compared to just 6.2 pounds for people who were just dieting). After a year, those taking it while dieting had lost a total of 13.4 pounds, on average (compared to 5.8 pounds for those just dieting).
By the above information it seems that the med takes its time to settle in & to react, since you have been taking the med for 3 weeks it could be possible that you haven't lost weight, however bets would be to double check with your doc who prescribed the med., hope this helps?
