FAQ

How To Take Xenical?

Dosage and duration of treatment One Xenical 120mg capsule is taken with each main meal (to a maximum of three capsules daily). You can take the capsule before, during or up to one hour after each meal. If you miss a meal or the meal does not contain any fat, you may not need to take the Xenical capsule; check the patient information leaflet that comes with your medication.

Treatment should only continue beyond three months if you have lost 5% of your body weight. It usually starts to affect how you digest fat within one to two days. If you have not seen results after three months, it is unlikely to be an effective treatment for you.

If you have type 2 diabetes, it can take longer to lose weight using Xenical, so your target weight loss after three months may therefore be slightly lower.

If the treatment is successful after three months, your prescription may be continued for up to a year. After that, your GP will review your condition and decide whether you should continue with the medication.
