Well it does what it says, you won't absorb fats because they're in the toilet.

published

I've been on it for a week, I haven't weighed myself yet but so far I can tell they work. I'm on the loo a couple times a day, even on days where I hadn't taken the pills, I'm still going as if I had taken them, not sure if thats a good thing or a bad thing.

I don't like the awful, pain it gives me before a movement, you just feel so unwell. I don't normally eat a lot of fatty foods but this week I have had two feeds of takeaway and I definitely paid for it.

A great help

published

I have lost 4kg in one week using Xenical. I never thought it would work this well. I barely exercise. This has been really encouraging and will keep using this.

Only work if you like eating high fat food

published

I am more like a carb and sugar person... but I took some experiments taking this after some high fat meals. Yes I did dispose those oil away, almost like a full of oil diarrhea.
However it seems not helping with my regular high carb and sugar diet. And if you want to cut the fat out of that high fat meal you took. Just keep in mind you might poop in your pants.

Going Great!

published

I started taking Xenical 10 days ago and have lost 3.2 kg so far. I had a slight headache for the first 24 hours but have had absolutely no side-effects after that. I have not started exercising but I am eating a low-fat diet. I’m very happy at this point

Not Sure it Actually Works

published

Tried it for a month and no real weight loss from it. Might keep it on hand for the occasions when you know you'll eat too much but it can't tell you if any calories a taken out (as it suggests it removes 1/3 of the fat from food you eat) also if sugar is your weakness then it can't help at all.

Purchased in at Chemist Warehouse for $50.

The right to repair: which brands are making it easier for you to fix their products?

So far so good

published

I started this medication 7 days ago, i started at 85.7kg, and have already lost 1.3kg. I exercise when I can as i have a tight schedule. I hope if i really knuckle down on my diet and cut half the fat 1. Less oily stools and 2. Will have very fast weight loss. People complaining about having terrible oily farts are definitely binging on the maccas and not passionate about losing weight. Good luck everyone that tries it!

Actually works

published

Hi All, Done a lot of research before ordering it and it is hard to get it online too without the pre-assessment... I had to lie and add 15 more kilos to my weight to get it... Taking it for one week, 2-3 tablets a day, depends on how many meals I eat daily. In one week I lost 1 kg, perhaps it is due to me being scared to eat anything too fatty, after reading the side effects or uncontrolled accidents ha. I was 77.5 kgs and now I am 76.5 kgs... Hopefully it will continue to work.

2 1/2 weeks!

published

So far its been 2 1/2 weeks on half dose of Xenical. (under doctors orders) I have not had the urgency or accidents as others have described and I put this down to my dosage. I have lost just under 3kgs. Would be better if the other alternative Alli (60mg) was available in Australia also as having to split capsules is not fun! Would recommend trying half dosage if full dosage irritates.

The weight loss effect is quite significant.

published

I now weigh 190 pounds and I am 175cm tall. I usually work in the office, I don't exercise well, and I often eat fast food. It is about 11 kilograms less. The side effect is that the stool is uncontrolled and can come at any time. It must be put on the toilet immediately. When it is on, it will be sprayed with oil. The toilet needs long-term cleaning. The weight loss effect is quite significant.

It does exactly what it’s supposed to

published

This medication is great for keeping you from eating oily fatty foods as the leaky butt side effect is a major turn off! In conjunction with exercise you can definitely lose weight.

Details

Is Xenical suitable for me?

According to the manufacturer’s instructions, it should only be used by persons with a BMI of 30 or higher. You can find out your BMI by going to the BMI calculator on the Heart Foundation website.

While Xenical is currently available as pharmacist-only medicine, this doesn’t actually mean you need a doctor’s prescription to buy it. You simply walk into a pharmacy, and a pharmacist will assess whether the drug is suitable for your circumstances.

How do I take Xenical?

Xenical is designed to be taken with fatty meals, as it works in your stomach and intestine to prevent your body absorbing up to 30% of the fat found in food. You can take it up to 3 times a day for all 3 meals, provided you eat a limit of 12 grams of fat per meal.

Is Xenical effective?

While Xenical may sound like a miracle cure, it isn’t. It works best when taken with a low fat diet, multivitamins and an exercise regimen. It shouldn’t be solely relied on to shed kilos without any lifestyle changes.

There may also be a number of side effects, such as oily bowels, diarrhoea and constant trips to the bathroom. There are fairly mixed reviews when it came to the effectiveness of this weight loss medication. However, overall, there are more 4 and 5-star reviews than 1 and 2-star reviews.

How much does Xenical cost?

This pharmacy-only medication costs around $94.95 for a 4-week supply.
