why is it not available in the uk chemists anymore
There is a manufacturing problem.
It is not certain exactly when Roche will be able to resume production, however patients should be aware that generic equivalents are available. Teva, has obtained a licence allowing it to produce and sell orlistat 120mg capsules in the UK. Due to the Xenical shortfall, demand for the Teva-made generic product is extremely high, so you may still have a wait on your hands.
