Orlistat (Xenical) Capsules

Please note: Brand received may vary

Orlistat is a medicine used by people with a BMI of over 30 to help them lose weight. You can calculate your BMI using an online calculator and inputting your weight, height and age. A healthy BMI is 18-25, and a BMI of 30 or over is classed as medically obese. Obesity can lead to potentially fatal conditions such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart attack or stroke. It can also impede on your ability to lead a full and active life. Orlistat comes in the form of a capsule and helps you to lose weight when lifestyles changes alone, such as a healthy diet and a programme of increased exercise, have not helped sufficiently.

If you need to take Orlistat tablets, you can buy them online safely from a UK doctor such as Doctor-4-U by completing our simple medical questionnaire and getting a certified prescription. It will be dispatched within 24 hours.

What is the difference between Xenical and Orlistat?

Chemically, Xenical and Orlistat are the same drug. They both have the same ingredients list (orlistat). The only difference is that Xenical has a brand name on it, which makes it more expensive, whereas Orlistat is what is known as a “generic” drug. There is no difference in side effects, dosage, or interference with other medications between the two products. However, if you have previously been taking Xenical, and are taking multiple medications that mean you may get them confused if you changed the name/packet type of your painkiller, you may wish to continue taking Xenical.

How does Orlistat work?

Orlistat contains an active ingredient of the same name. It helps you lose weight by reducing the amount of fat your body absorbs It fact, it stops a third of the fat you ingest from being absorbed into your system. The treatment works by binding to enzymes in your body called lipases, hindering your intestine's ability to absorb food. This process assists you in losing weight.

Although Orlistat is designed for those who have a BMI of over 30, your medical history and other medications may mean it isn’t right for you.

Speak to your doctor before taking Orlistat if:

  • You are allergic to orlistat or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet
  • You suffer from chronic malabsorption syndrome
  • You have cholestasis
  • You are breastfeeding
  • You are taking ciclosporin or acarbose

Like all medications, Orlistat may have side effects, but not everyone gets them. Common side effects include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Headache
  • Rectal pain
  • Soft or fatty stools

You should always follow your doctor’s recommendation on taking Orlistat, and only use the following information as a guide.

The recommended dose is one capsule three times a day, each with a meal. The capsule should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.

Dosage instructions
Take ONE capsule THREE times daily with main meals.
