Comment from: Dalli, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: December 31

Lost weight and drug well tolerated. Only problem is oil stool and leaking especially when you eat high fat foods. Of course you begin to learn what is high fat content and not which trains you to eat better. Also my cholestral number went down. This drug is only one I lost weight on however the downside is the loose bowels, gas, etc that you may have.

I have only been using this drug for a week; however I am certainly finding it very effective in helping me to stay away from fatty foods! I am very lucky in that Ido not have too much weight to lose (I would like to go from 10 stone 5 lbs to about 9 stone) although up until now I have found it very difficult to lose any as I can't keep away from chocolate! Anyhow, I have lost 5lbs with Xenical in my first week of a reduced calorie diet (of about 12-1400 calories a day) and I am keeeping away from nearly all fatty foods as i am terrified of the side effects!! Xenical is certainly working in that I have had no chocolate for a week, I have a lot of energy and I am feeling great. I will keep taking it until I am down to my target weight (and I will let you know in a few weeks how I have got on!) Good luck fellow dieters :)

have been taking mediciation for about 6 weeks and have lost 10 lbs. with 40 more pounds to go. Oily stools are easy to elimiante if you eliminate consuming too much fatty foods - it look me about 2 weeks to figure out the level I needed to avoid problems such as leaking. I am extremely hopefu this drug continues to work for me.

Lost 90 pds and kept it off for 8 years. This never happened to me before. It has changed my life. But please note that Iron and fat solouble vitamins can be depleted by this drug. Also, the more fat I eat, the more likely to have an accident.
