Xenical Ireland (generic name: Orlistat) blocks the percentage of fat consumed in food each day and prevents it from being absorbed by the body. Xenical Ireland is designed to support patients in losing weight and reducing the risk of weight gain again. This medicine should only be taken by adults on a low-calorie diet. Xenical refers to a prescription medicine for orlistat. The Alli branded version of Orlistat is available over the counter.
Xenical Ireland is used for the general control of obesity, as well as for weight loss and weight loss in dieters. In addition, Xenical is effective in the treatment of obese patients with baseline BMI ≥30 kg / m2 and / or ≥27 kg / m2 and additional risk factors (eg diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidaemia).
Weight loss is never recommended during pregnancy, so do not take Xenical Ireland if you are pregnant. Stop taking Xenical and tell your doctor without hesitation if you are pregnant. Treatment with Xenical may make it harder for your body to absorb certain types of vitamins. These vitamins are very important when a patient is breastfeeding. Therefore, if you are breast-feeding, do not take this medicine without your doctor’s advice.
Do not take this medicine if you have digestive problems (such as food absorption problems). Do not take Xenical if you have problems with your gallbladder or if you are already pregnant. Do not take Xenical if you have previously had an organ transplant or if you are taking ciclosporin unless you are actually overweight.
Xenical Ireland is just one part of a comprehensive treatment program that should include exercise, proper diet and weight maintenance. The patient’s daily intake of fats, proteins and carbohydrates should be evenly distributed between all meals during the day. Follow the dosing instructions, diet and exercise regimen carefully.
Avoid high fat diets. This is because a high-fat diet tends to increase the patient’s risk of gastrointestinal side effects when taken with Xenical. Avoid Xenical treatment if you are allergic to Orlistat and if you have malabsorption syndrome (ie are unable to absorb enough food and nutrients).
In addition, you cannot take this medicine if you have any of the following:
- gallbladder problems;
- If you are already pregnant or planning to become pregnant soon.
- organ transplantation;
- You’re not really overweight.
Take ciclosporin (to prevent an organ transplant rejection).
To make sure that Xenical is completely safe for you, talk to your doctor if you have ever had any of the following:
- gallbladder disease;
- kidney stones;
- liver disease;
- kidney disease;
Eating disorders (such as anorexia or bulimia).
Xenical is not allowed in patients under 12 years of age, so do not give Xenical to patients under 18 years of age.
Take Xenical according to the instructions on the label or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take lower or higher doses than actually recommended. Read the full patient information leaflet, the full package leaflet and the medicine guide. If you have any further questions, ask your pharmacist.
Usually, Xenical is a three-day dose with all the main meals that contain a certain percentage of fat (no more than 30% of the total dietary calorie in that food). Xenical can be taken 1 hour after or with food. If you miss a meal or if there are foods that are actually fat-free, you can skip the dose of Xenical for that meal.
The total fat content of your daily diet should exceed 30% of your daily caloric intake (for example, if you consume 1,200 calories a day, up to 360 such calories should actually be in the form of fat).
If you have any signs of an allergic reaction to Xenical, contact your doctor immediately.
