What is Orlistat?

Have You Heard of Xenical?
Orlistat is a branded version of the drug Xenical, manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Roche. It has the same active ingredient and dosage strength of 120mg. Both have the same effectiveness, except Xenical is a little more expensive.
What is the Difference of Alli with Xenical?
Another weight loss medication is called Alli. It is the same as the former two mentioned medicines, except it comes in a dosage of 60mg. This makes it a lower strength version, as it is half the mg. At present, Alli is not readily available since there is a shortage issue caused by a manufacturer recall.
When To Use Orlistat
For those who have tried so many times to lose weight by combining exercise and diet but still do not get the results that they want, they may think about using it. This medication is clinically proven and is highly effective in helping a person lose up to 50% or even more of weight that from sole dieting.

It can also be used by people with a BMI of more than 28 who have medical conditions related to weight which include high blood pressure and diabetes.

How It Works
It is able to attach itself the natural enzymes found in the body that is responsible for breaking down fat. By attaching itself to these enzymes, it prevents the fat that is found in food from being absorbed.
For those who have the tendency to eat more calories than required, the excess is unfortunately be stored by the body as fat, thus making a person gain weight. When a person ingests fat, your system attempts to break it down in order for it to be digested. It helps the digestive system to block about 1/3 of the fat from food ingested to prevent it from being digested. Lipases, enzymes found in the body, are known to help break down fat. If Orlistat is taken, it attaches itself to these enzymes and prevents it from breaking down some of the fat that has been ingested. These undigested fats is then removed by means of bowel movement. And because of this, less fat is stored in the body.
What is important to know that it is not to be mistaken for an appetite suppressant or stimulant. It is specially designed to work only in the digestive system. It should not affect a persons sleep, brain or heart rate speed. With more that 100 clinical studies and case study patients of more than 30,000, it has been proven to be highly effective.
For the first three months taken, a target of losing 5% weight is given. Once this initial weight loss goal is finally achieved, one is now able to continue on with the usage of this medication. Pharmacists are only allowed to supply Orlistat for a maximum of 2 years. Every time a user is supplied with this medication, he or she will be required to provide a Pharmacist with their present weight information.
If the weight of the user has increased within the prescribed initial three months, the use will be recommended to be stopped. And if one loses enough weight to attain a BMI that is lower than 28, this medication will no longer be supplied.
For those who have initially tried to lose weight while using it and have not succeeded, they can take a break from using it for 6 months and try once more. They may also seek the advice from a doctor for other weight loss options.
