If you follow the rules you wont have a problem, but if your still cheating and have not changed your diet, you WILL have adverse side effects. Which in my opinion is the beauty of this drug, it keeps you accountable to your weight loss goal! :) good luck everyone! The first time i took it i lost 35 lbs in 4 months. i had a baby 18 months ago and i am going to go back on it to lose the baby weight.

Xenical DOES work if you follow the instructions and heed the warnings!!! You can't expect to lose weight if you're not eating healthy and/or exercising. I learned this the hard way. My first time using Xenical, I wasted lots of $ and barely lost 4lbs, and had many, many accidents. My second time around, I was COMMITTED to following the instructions because I wanted REAL results and NO ACCIDENTS! After 3 mths, I lost 38 lbs; 77 by 7 mths, and NO accidents. YOU TOO CAN LOSE THE WEIGHT! But you HAVE to be COMMITTED to a low-calorie diet, execercise and leave the snacking binges alone! Here's a tip: drink lots of water or flavored water, eat more fruits and vegetables and have one cheat day (I pick Saturday because I have out with family & friends). This way you don't feel as if your depriving yourself from the foods you love and miss. Just don't over do it, or you'll have one major accident. Best of luck to you all!!!

I have had no problems with this medication. I have not had any of the bad experiences that people say they have had.
