Therefore the importance of 1) choosing the right fat burner to guide you for several weeks or even months and 2) understanding in which context it will offer you the most interesting performances while remaining adapted to your physical and medical condition!

Xenical is one of the most used drugs / fat burners in the United States. Prescribed by doctors for about twelve years now, it is particularly recommended and used as part of their treatment against obesity.

Xenical is known under several names: Xenical at Roche Laboratories (120 mg), Alli at GlaxoSmithKline Laboratories (60 mg) and Orlistat (the active ingredient name) at Actavis Laboratories. Whatever the name, the effects are very similar, and only the price really changes from one version to another. We will tell you more about it.

If you have any questions about this product and are unsure whether you should trust it or not, read the rest of this article, we answer all the frequent questions about this treatment, but we regularly improve this guide with the questions received from our readers to be as up-to-date as possible.

What is behind the name “Xenical”?

Behind this pill is a molecule known as Orlistat. A substance whose main action is to restrain gastrointestinal lipases.

Acheter Xenical 120mgThis molecule works on weight loss by preventing a large part (more than 30%) of the fat absorbed by your intestine, thus avoiding the assimilation of too much fat and thus reducing the impact on your body and your silhouette.

For an optimal effect, it is recommended to use it as part of a low-calorie diet.

To understand how the Xenical pill works, we must have a look at lipase.

This enzyme, unknown to the public, acts as fuel during digestion, helping to transform the fat you ingest into fatty acids that your body can use.

By restraining lipase, Xenical significantly reduces the number of lipids (and therefore fat) that your body will absorb during your meals. We are talking about 30% less fat absorbed through the use of this pill.

Who can take this treatment/fat burner?

However, Xenical is not for everyone. It is only prescribed to people whose BMI (Body Mass Index) is equal to or higher than 30.

This level of BMI is officially and medically linked to a degree of obesity in the patient.

A quick reminder about the calculation of BMI: you can calculate it by dividing your weight in KILOS by your height in square METERS. By weighing 75 kilos for 1m75, your BMI would, therefore, be 75/(1.75 x 1.75)=24.4. If you prefer to have it done for you, we’ve added a very simple BMI calculator so you can get the answer in a second!

In some rare cases, it is possible to be prescribed Xenical as early as a BMI of 27, but only if the overweight is followed by other health conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or type 2 diabetes (see below).

If you are NOT obese, with a BMI above 27, we invite you to consult natural alternative treatments, which are less aggressive and will be much more adapted to your situation:

The prerequisites for taking this treatment

Xenical is NOT a miracle product. And to ensure a positive, lasting effect on your weight loss, it is therefore important to combine these tablets with several key elements.

Have a BMI compatible with the treatment

As said previously, it is really important. If your BMI is lower than the one required for this treatment, your prescription may be refused by the doctors of our partner pharmacy. Do not play with your health!

Your BMI MUST be between 27 and 30 at least to justify taking Xenical!

REMINDER: If you are NOT obese, with a BMI above 27, we invite you to consult alternative natural treatments, which are less aggressive and will be much more adapted to your situation:

Exercise regularly, even moderate activities

Walking (10 000 steps per day), jump rope, running, Zumba, whatever you choose, know that physical activity is a real PLUS to achieve your weight loss goals. It doesn’t have to be intensive, or “painful” for you. Regular, “gentle” activity at your own pace is enough.

And you’ll see, you might even like it after all!

Change your diet to reduce fat

To avoid as many side effects as possible it is STRONGLY recommended to follow a so-called low-calorie diet while taking this treatment. That is to say, relatively low in calories. And especially FAT.

Eat protein-rich foods, (unmodified) starchy foods such as sweet potatoes, red beans, quinoa, rice, etc…. But also fruits and vegetables!

Be patient as it is a long-term treatment!

We repeat it once again: Xenical is not a miracle treatment! It intensifies the elimination of fats from your body and prevents as much as possible the storage of new ones. But like any healthy and SUSTAINABLE weight loss, you must learn to lose weight over time.

No RAPID weight loss is SUSTAINABLE and HEALTHY for your body. If you do not take Xenical in addition to real changes in your diet and physical activity, weight loss will not be sustainable.

Testimony of a Xenical user – Forum Doctissimo

By committing yourself to take Xenical, you agree to put all the chances on your side, but also not to look after the sudden loss of tens of kilos. Follow the advice provided, take your tablets, and you will observe results month after month, WITHOUT having any YO-YO effect!

The Yo-yo effect affects the majority of people on diets that are too aggressive and not followed correctly!

Dosage: how to use Xenical?

It should be administered 3 times a day, either before meals or within 60 minutes after the end of a meal.

It is not a substitute of healthy food and as explained above, following a low-calorie diet is strongly recommended as part of xenical treatment.

Xenical must be associated with a low-calorie diet recommended by your doctor. Sticking to this diet is essential to achieve the desired results.

If you forget a dose, it is not recommended to take 2 doses the following meal. Just keep up taking the treatment normally and make sure you minimize oversights!

Warning: increasing the number of tablets, or their frequency of ingestion, will not produce more convincing results. 3 tablets per day will allow you to benefit from the maximum effect of this medication.

REMINDER: Xenical is only available by prescription. You can obtain a prescription from one of the Treated.com platform’s accredited doctors if you do not wish to consult your attending physician.

  • Gelatin;
  • Indigo Carmin;
  • Sodium starch glycolate;
  • Lauryl sulfate sodium;
  • Titanium dioxide;

Precautions for use


If you “suffer” from any of the following conditions, note that you should avoid taking Xenical. If your doctor is not aware of this, remember to mention it, he will be able to react and offer you an alternative treatment!

  • If you are allergic to any of the ingredients;
  • If you suffer from cholestasis: a defect in the production of bile within the liver;
  • If you suffer from malabsorption syndrome;
  • If you are breastfeeding.

Also, note that Xenical can have negative side effects if taken alongside other treatments. Remember to talk to your doctor, he or she will be able to advise you on which drugs to avoid.

Possible Side Effects

The use of this treatment, even if you follow the instructions carefully, may cause side effects in some people. These side effects are mainly observed by patients during the first few weeks and gradually disappear.

Common side effects od Xenical:

  • Skin rash
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Abdominal pain and flatulence
  • Fatigue
  • A significant decrease in appetite
  • Short-term nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting
  • Dark urine and clay-colored stools

These side effects are related to the presence of lipids in the diet. It is therefore advisable, during the treatment, to reduce the lipid consumed (butter, fresh cream, olive oil, rapeseed oil, palm oil, margarine…). This reduction is generally “prescribed” in the context of a low-calorie diet.

According to Laboratoires Roche, producer of the tablets, the side effects observed at the beginning of treatment are quickly decreasing. And these are almost non-existent after the first few months of therapy.

This is largely due to the change of diet made by most patients, once again pointing out the importance of combining this treatment with a change in your eating habits.

Is this treatment really effective?

In 12 years of existence, Xenical Orlistat has already made millions of people around the world lose weight.

  • 55% of patients who used it experienced weight loss of at least 5% of their initial weight within one year of starting this treatment.
  • 25% have achieved a decrease of at least 10% in their initial weight.

These 2 studies were conducted in patients receiving treatment in combination with a low-calorie diet (source):

  • Important 1: Weight loss can reach several lbs per month under optimal conditions (good body reaction, healthy and low-calorie food, low or moderate physical activity).
  • Important 2: Ending Orlistat without maintaining a healthy and balanced diet can result in weight gain. It is, therefore, more than advisable not to consider this drug as a miracle product, but as a weight loss accelerator as part of a well-followed diet.

It is therefore clear to state that Xenical is a treatment whose efficacy has been demonstrated, but whose side effects must be taken into account, as well as the importance of linking this treatment to an appropriate diet if you want to see positive results.

Impact on diabetes, high blood pressure, and cholesterol.

In addition to its impact on body mass index, it is good to know that Xenical has a positive impact on the following elements, and therefore represents an attractive asset in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease:

  • Reduction of up to 37% in the incidence of type 2 diabetes (source)
  • Improvement in blood pressure (source
  • A decrease in cholesterol levels (LDL) (source)

Studies have shown that more than 90% of people with type 2 diabetes are obese. Overweight people tend to eat too much sugar, which largely unbalances the sugar level in the body and facilitates the growth and premature onset of diabetes.

People who already have diabetes can also take the Xenical treatment while taking drugs specifically designed to treat diabetes. Obese people are more susceptible to this disease. Obesity can cause a disorder and unbalance the insulin level in the body.

Xenical helps to regulate and control blood sugar levels in obese and diabetic people. Buying Xenical may then reduce or at least delay the progression of diabetes.

Study on the impact of Xenical on type 2 diabetes: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14693982


It is advisable to keep your boxes between 68 and 77 degrees, away from heat, humidity, and light. Avoid storage in the bathroom and of course, make sure to keep the treatment out of reach of children.

The studies have shown a clear impact of Xenical on weight loss. However, you must keep in mind that this treatment is only effective under two conditions and is ONLY prescribed to people who are obese and with a BMI greater than or equal to 27:

  • Combine it with a low-calorie diet
  • Strict monitoring of the level of lipids ingested

REMINDER: If you are NOT obese, with a BMI above 27, we invite you to consult alternative treatments, less aggressive, and which will be more adapted to your situation:

Once these two elements are well assimilated, it is quite possible to notice a weight loss thanks to the use of Orlistat / Xenical. We recommend you to add a small amount of sport to this treatment to further amplify the positive results. Because Xenical is not a miracle pill.

For effective results, it must be a “complement”, a small “boost”, that you will add to a change in your eating and sports habits.

What we like:

  • Helps to decrease the amount of fat absorbed.
  • Medically proven results, and visible after 8 weeks.
  • A real impact on type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and bad cholesterol.

What we don’t like:

  • Frequent side effects.
  • Long lasting treatment
