Xenical capsules are the branded version of the drug Orlistat which is a medicine used to treat obesity. It works in your digestive system to block about one-third of the fat in the food you eat from being digested. Xenical attaches to the enzymes in your digestive system (lipases) and blocks them from breaking down some of the fat you have eaten during your meal. The undigested fat cannot be absorbed and is eliminated by your body. Xenical is indicated in the treatment of obesity along with a low-calorie intake diet. You can buy Xenical capsules online from e-Surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are Xenical Capsules?
Xenical capsules are used to treat obesity. Xenical attaches to the enzymes in your digestive system that aid the process of breaking down fats from your food. Xenical then works to block the intake of about one-third of the fat in the food you eat. Xenical capsules contain the active ingredient Orlistat which is available in a generic form. The only difference between the two is price, as Xenical capsules are a brand they are slightly more expensive.
Xenical capsules are designed to be used in combination with a healthy, balanced diet and exercise to help you to achieve a healthy weight. Xenical capsules are intended for use in those with a BMI above 30. Obesity can cause a variety of health problems including:
Type 2 diabetes
Coronary heart disease
High cholesterol and blood pressure
Some types of cancer
To get the best results from Xenical capsules you should follow a diet set out by a doctor or nutritionist. Exercise is also a good way to aid weight loss, without these lifestyle changes you are less likely to loos weight using Xenical capsules. When losing weight it is important to remember it won’t happen all at once. Crash diets and extreme calorie restriction may work in the short term but are very unlikely to last. When it comes to weight loss, it’s best to work on it gradually. Xenical capsules are not a miracle weight loss medication, but they can help aid those who are already working towards healthily reducing their weight.
Xenical Capsules are a licensed UK medication that requires a prescription. You can get Xenical capsules from a GP, a local pharmacy or buy Xenical online from a registered UK pharmacy such as e-Surgery. We would not recommend taking appetite suppressants, unlicensed weight loss medication or diet pills. If your BMI is below 30 a nutritionally balanced diet in combination with exercise is the best way to lose weight.
How do you take Xenical capsules?
If you buy Xenical tablets always take them exactly as your doctor has told you. If you are unsure, check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Xenical should be taken with a well-balanced calorie-controlled diet that is rich in fruit and vegetables and contains an average of 30% of the calories from fat.
Your daily intake of fat, carbohydrate and protein should be distributed over three meals.
You usually take one capsule at breakfast time, lunchtime and dinner time. To gain the optimal benefit, avoid the intake of food containing fat between meals. If you miss a meal or your meal contains no fat you will not need to take a Xenical capsule. Your doctor or prescriber will likely issue 12 weeks’ worth of tablets or until you have lost 5% of your body weight, as long as you are following a balanced diet and staying active.
Side effects of Xenical capsules?
As with any form of medication, Xenical capsules have side effects. Below are a few of the common side effects of takingXenical(Orlistat) capsules:

They generally disappear or reduce the longer you are on the medication, and following a set diet with the correct amount of fat should also help.
