Reviews for Xenical
For Obesity "When I got out of high school I weighed about 350lbs (25st, 158kg) so my doctor put me on xenical and it worked amazingly. For the first time in my life, I was able to lose weight. I lost 70lbs in about 8 months. It was uncomfortable too, having some sudden needs to use the washroom and leaking oil. But, I saw fatty foods differently and totally changed my eating habits, so I lost another 30lbs on my own. For about 14 years after that I kept around that weight, but gained a lot more recently with lifestyle changes, and started the pills again 2 weeks ago. I'm already down 10lbs, and with a better diet, no bad experiences with the washroom. If you're obese, I highly recommend taking these pills with a good diet and exercise."

For Obesity "These pills are amazing! I've been on them for 3 days and I've lost 7lbs already. My start weight was high - 18.5st :( Only 2 side effects for me, feeling thirsty more often and one urgent trip to the bathroom after salmon."

For Obesity "I've been on Xenical/Orlistat for 5 days and have lost 3.1kg (about 6lb)! I'm really, really happy with the results. I've had a gastric band 2 and half years but then gained all the weight (20kg) back when I went on antidepressants (Citalopram), which then made me feel more depressed as no matter what I did the weight just wouldn't budge - which is very common with anti-depressants. I finally quit the meds and noticed I was gaining more weight after. Let's note I did not eat more than a 'fist' portion, as my stomach just cannot physically take it, so it wasn't the food, just my metabolism that basically went on a full year strike. Anyway, I had to turn to Orlistat as a last resort but I am loving it! Finally something's working!!"

For Obesity "I have taken these tablets before and they really helped me on my path to weight loss. The doctor gave me 3 months supply I lost a stone and a half then proceeded to lose a further 2 stone myself over the following 2 years slow but taught me portion and fat control and that was with barely any exercising apart from the odd burst of power walks with friends during summer months. So after just having a baby 3 months ago I lost 2 stone instantly in first 2 weeks but due to the section I'm suffering joint pain and tiredness so unable to exercise properly the doctor has given me orlistat/xenical again. It's my first week weigh in tomorrow and I've already lost 6lb in 6 day's and trust me I've not starved just ate more sensibly."

For Obesity "I've been taking this for just 8 days and it WORKS. I am 5'8 and weighed 79.3 kilos at my height.. when I weighed myself day before yesterday I weighed 77.2 These pills work because they FORCE the fat out of you and if you eat bad food they don't care where you are or what you're doing at that second... you WILL sh** yourself! I have a Fitbit and have been making myself walk back from work 25 mins each day so together with normal days walking also average 5-6 miles. So lost over 2 kilos without a lot of effort in just over a week. These really work. I'll be buying some more until the beer belly that haunted my late twenties is slayed and I can see my abs again! :-)"

For Obesity "I've currently been on this medication for only 2 weeks and I have already lost a stone with no side effects due to sticking to a low fat diet but this hasn't stopped me from eating my naughty treats I just now make a homemade healthier version, which if I'm honest I enjoy more there are a lot of healthy options of food out there to trick your mind into thinking something naughty I recently purchased some chicken sausages and they are lovely. Looking forward to continuing my journey on this medication"

For Obesity "Took it for one month and a half. Didn't lose even one pound! It didn't work for me obviously. I have to say that yes you excrete fat when you eat fatty things and on days where you watch your food choices, it keeps you clean. But either ways, no results for me."

For Obesity "I've been taking this for about four days now but haven't changed my diet much. I really don't advise doing this, as I literally just shat myself. But I'm not absorbing as much fat as I would through my diet (which is about to change!) So successful so far :)"

For Obesity "i have lost over 10 pounds in 2 weeks and have had no problem with them at all... I am sticking to low fat labels and cutting out all the bad stuff, the tablets are great because it gets you in the mindset of knowing that theres consequences if you have a lot of fat."

For Obesity "This medicine helped me lose 13 pounds in 3 weeks. Still I have to lose 47 pounds to be in perfect BMI range. No side effects so far, may be because I don't eat oily/fatty food much."

For Obesity "First let me start by saying yes if you eat the wrong foods you will have a bad time. This is a sort of magic pill but you need the right ingredients. Think low fat!You will become aware of what you can and can't eat. I've been on a low fat diet with exercise coupled with these pills. I've been working hard and seeing amazing results. My doctor has said I will probably only need these pills for six months to get to where I need to be. My first weigh in saw me lose 10kgs that's around 21lbs or 1.5st dependant on what you work with. I've cut out all the bad things and have been walking at least a mile a day. As well as doing other exercises a couple times a week. I'm living proof it works.no accidents either. 19st 5 to 17st and counting!"

For Obesity "I have only been on this medication for 2 months now in my first weigh in I lost 6lb 6oz and my second weigh in I lost the same again, overall 12lb 12oz just 2lb short of a stone couldn't believe I've lost weight so quick when I could never lose weight on my own, I've not exercised on these tablets and have just ate normal which is naughty of me, I started off at 21 stone and I'm now at 20 got a long way to go as my goal is back to 8 stone from what I was originally if I keep this up tho and eat healthily and exercise more I'll be slim before I know it and I'll be happy again"

For Obesity "I took Xenical years ago. Was working a very physical postal job so I did get quite a bit of exercise but before taking it had not lost much. Once I started it, I lost thirty pounds within a couple of months with very little effort. Side effects were minimal as long as I didnt eat excessive fat but as good as it worked, I could handle them."

"I started out weighing 98kgs in May 2014, I have an underactive thyroid, and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, with Irritable bowl, so I eat a Gluten Free Diet. my exercise levels are high, I swim 2-3 miles a week, work out 3-4 mornings a week (power hooping, kettle bells and situps to name a few) and I work in an active environment with Special Needs Children. Because of how active I am and I could not lose weight the doctor put me on Orlistat. I have now lost over 8Kgs and my next weigh in is the end of this month (August). I find it easy to do, I eat a low fat diet anyway so that hasn't been too hard but I do find myself being careful of my lower body functions. I've been caught out a couple of times which can be unpleasant but I'm happy with the loss so far."

For Obesity "Just starting month 3 on Xenical. My BMI has dropped below 30, so no longer obese. Still a way to go, but over a stone gone & kept off. Feel so much better. Sleeping better, eating better & jogging (never jogged in my life!). Looking forward to my next weigh in, in Sept."

For Obesity "Hello all, Just putting my 2 cents worth in. I was skeptical of a safe, limited side effects weight loss medicine but as I was over 100 kilos and had high blood pressure I wanted to get on top of the situation. Although reasonably expensive I can only recommend this as I've lost 20 kilos over 3 months, including abstaining from gluten and sugar (most of the time) and avoiding overly salted processed foods. Whenever you eat something that is a bit fatty (10 grams or more to 100 grams of fat) take one of these after and you can be comfortable 30%~ of that fat will not be adding to the places you don't want it to be. Remember not to go all out on a junk food binge though, the toilet aftermath can be pretty damn rough. And accidents do happen."

For Obesity "Just been back for my 2nd months of tablets. Lost 10lb in the 1st 3 wks of being on Xenical & gone from an size 18 to a comfortable 16. Eating more healthily, but need to start exercising if this is going to work properly. It doesn't work for everyone, but definitely worth trying if you're struggling with your weight."

For Obesity "I've been taking Xenical 120mg tablets as I was close to 19 stone, I've always been a big girl, but having an underactive thyroid plus polycystic ovarian syndrome just kept me gaining weight, which made me depressed, which made me eat more. I've been on them 5 weeks in the first 4 weeks I've lost 18llbs, and am due to get weighed in 3 weeks again, I've been going gym and swimming as well and sticking to 2000 calories."

For Obesity "Been on orlistat for 2 months and so far lost 21 pounds. You really have to watch what you eat as the side effects can be very unpleasant. Let's just say I had to buy extra toilet cleaner. Stay away from fast foods and sugary snacks. Stock up on vegetables and fruit. This is not a miracle pill, you have to put work into it, but it helps a lot. Going back to my GP to get my 3rd months prescription. Looking forward to a healthier me."
