Xenical is available by prescription only in the UK, France and Canada. Its main ingredient Orlistat works to reduce the degradation of fat in the body, its also reduces the amount of cholesterol in body and also your blood pressure.
Extensive clinical trials have shown that using Xenical up to a year can help you to lose over 10% of your body weight.
However, with a little research you will find a whole host of problems. Problems such as oily spotting, hypocalcaemia, chest infections and the most embarrassing of all, uncontrollable flatulence are all caused by Xenical. As you can see these side effects can range from the embarrassing to the dangerous.
These side effects can be minimized if you consume less than 15g of fat per meal. This would mean you would need to know the nutritional value of the food you consume. This is often not easy as this information is not always available.
It is unfair and misleading to say that Xenical has no real benefits to you, studies and research have shown that you can indeed lose weight by taking this supplement.
However, it would also be wrong to only give one side of the argument, and that is Xenical is a supplement that has plenty of side effects.
Xenical is a supplement that can only be given on prescription, even then the doctor is required to keep an eye on you to see that it is working correctly. If positive results are not shown after 3 months then it is required by law that the doctor stops your use of the drug.
