Xenical Prescription Diet Pill Review

Xenical Orlistat Weight Loss DrugThere is undoubtedly more choice and a freedom of choice in the non prescription diet pill market place. The prescription only genre has very few offerings and all based around pharmaceutical drug compositions.

Xenical is by far the most frequently and commonly administered diet drug – although not completely side effect free it offers sufferers of obesity a high chance of weight loss success.

Visiting your GP or doctor and simply asking for a diet pill via prescription is often met with disappointment. In order to qualify for a prescription there has to be sufficient reason – it is highly unlikely that you will be prescribed anything unless you are classed as very over weight or obese.

In most circumstances if your Body Mass Index (BMI) is over 30 – you may well be considered for a course of Xenical.

What Is Xenical

Xenical is the trade or brand name of the chemically produced diet drug Orlistat – Orlistat is an extremely strong fat blocker that can prevent the absorption of unhealthy and excess fat from the food that we eat.

How Does Xenical Work

A fat blocking genre of diet pill that can prevent the absorption over a quarter of fat attached to food consumed . It does not suppress appetite, effect the metabolism or have any affect on the brain – it is purely a digestive process that tackles the problem of obesity head on and at source rather than treat the after effects of overindulgence or over eating.

The undigested fat can then pass naturally through the body and leave via a bowel movement. There is nothing complicated in the process – if a dieter were eat his or her normal or usual food portion they would be better off by 25% in terms of introducing fat or calories of any kind into their body.

Side Effects Of Xenical

It would be irresponsible not to highlight the potential side effects that could be caused – after all Xenical is a drug and not a natural or herbal product and so does contain a slight risk to health.

One of the less severe side effects that has been reported is an increase in the frequency of bowel movements and an unusual or messy stool. Although this is classed as side effect it is a byproduct and effect of the drug actually working – undigested fat has to leave the body somehow.

Another side effect that although not common but nonetheless reported is mild to painful skin rashes.

This is one of the reasons it is vital to not attempt to purchase form any source, be it internet or high street -  Xenical must only be taken under strict GP supervision.
