Xenical (orlistat) is the only approved prescription weight loss medication available in the UK. It blocks the absorption of up to 30% of the fat from your daily food intake, making it the most effective weight loss treatment available. You can buy Xenical online at 121doc by selecting your quantity requirements and answering a few online medical questions. We offer fast and discreet dispatch options, with all medications being eligible for same or next day delivery.
The active ingredient in Xenical tablets is orlistat, which works to reduce the amount of fat that the body absorbs from meals. Xenical can help reduce weight when taken in combination with a healthy diet and effective exercise regime.
Orlistat is a lipase inhibitor, it works by altering the way some of the enzymes in the digestive system work, specifically the two that help break down fats. Fat molecules are generally too large to be absorbed directly into the blood stream and need to be broken down before this can happen. By inhibiting the enzymes that usually perform this task, Xenical can significantly reduce the amount of fat that the body is able to absorb. The reduction can be up to 30%, which over time will result in significant weight loss. The excess fat is passed through the system and excreted in the faeces.
As the only prescription weight loss medication available in the UK, Xenical is the only clinically proven weight loss medication. Unlike some appetite suppressants, it does not interfere with the brain and so has a much lower risk of side effects. It is also very effective at aiding weight loss, with people using orlistat combined with a healthier diet losing an average of 12.4 pounds over a 6 month period, in comparison to just 6.2 pounds in people who used diet alone. After 12 months, those using a combined orlistat and diet plan had lost a total of 19 pounds.
Orlistat, which is the active ingredient in Xenical, can also help to prevent some of the major complications that can occur as a result of excessive fat intake. These complications can include health issues like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol; when Xenical is combined with a healthy diet and daily exercise, it has been proven to reduce the risk of these conditions occurring. During clinical trials and studies, people who lost weight with orlistat were also able to delay and prevent the onset of such conditions.
Orlistat can be used by people who are over the age of 18 and who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above. If your BMI is 27-30 but you are suffering from underlying health complications that are exacerbated by your weight, the doctor may consider you for this treatment. You may not be suitable for Xenical if you are breastfeeding, pregnant or suffer from cholestasis, which is a condition that results in decreased bile flow. If any of these apply to you, please speak to your doctor in order to find a more appropriate weight loss treatment.
When you buy Xenical online at 121doc, you will need to complete an online medical consultation, which our partner doctors will use to determine whether this is the right treatment for you. It is important that you include any medical conditions that you are currently experiencing. Some medications cannot be used in conjunction with Xenical, so please ensure that you include any medication that you are currently taking on the online consultation form.
Xenical comes in a 120mg tablet that is taken three times a day. You should take this with meals, although you can take it up to one hour after you have eaten. You should ensure that your fat intake is split evenly between your meals to ensure this medication works correctly. You should not use Xenical if the meal that you have eaten does not contain any fat.
We will provide you with a patient leaflet that will be sent along with the medication. This will provide you with full instructions on how and when to use orlistat. You are required to read this leaflet before you start your treatment. Our Patient Support team is also available to answer any further questions that you may have.
Combining orlistat with a healthy diet can also help to prevent a number of weight-related health conditions, such as:
As with all prescription medication, this treatment may produce some side effects in a small number of users. These are more likely to occur within the digestive tract, as this is the localised area where orlistat takes effect. You may experience more bowel movements and an oily discharge, especially if you are eating meals that have a high fat content. Further side effects of orlistat can include nausea and abdominal pain. If you experience any side effects that cause you, you should speak to your doctor or contact our dedicated patient support team.
