Finally a slimming pill that works

AdvantagesIt helps lose weight and detoxes aswell

Disadvantagesrunny fatty poo (several times a day)

"...need it. To be prescribed xenical you have to be clinically obese which your doctor can tell you when he weighs you. Then you have to prove to your doctor you are commited to slimming by losing 5 pounds on your own in a few weeks. Each box contains a month supply and are given one box per prescription of 120mg. There are enough pills to take three a day (one with every meal)the pills are in the form of capsules and are blue. What the pills actually ..." Read review

To be thin or not

AdvantagesLose weight

DisadvantagesHorrible side effects.

"...I could go on to Xenical (Orlistat). So off I went and started watching what I ate as I would normally but we have to try. Made appointment to see GP for 1months time. When I went back yeah I had lost 2kg (4.4lbs) so he gave me a prescription for xenical. So went to pharmacy and got these little blue capsules. Then read the instructions to be taken 3 times a day when you eat meals. Ok no one warned me about the after effects if you over do the fat. ..." Read review

FINALLY... A DIET YOU CAN'T CHEAT ON!!

AdvantagesYou really want to eat well, and it works!!

DisadvantagesIf you do decide to be naughty... you're going to pay for it!!

"...friend recommended Alli (same as xenical but 1/2 the dose), and when i read up about it found that i could get the Xenical on prescription from my Doctor. I went to the doctors and she weighed me and took measurements and warned me of the side effects (i'd read all about them)... you never expect it to be so bad. My first week I was extra cautious, and very happy to lose 10lb. As the weeks went on, i now and then slipped in things like Mayo and ..." Read review

NO WEIGHT LOSS!!!!!!!

AdvantagesNONE YET

DisadvantagesCOULD EASILY BUY FAKE PILLS OVER THE INTERNET

"I bought some Xenical from a website (Extraslim.co.uk) at the end of August, I paid £65 for a 1 month supply (84 tablets) The pills actually arrived from New Zealand so that was my first surprise as I expected them to be from in the UK. I made sure I stuck to a low fat diet for a few days before they arrived which they did on 4th September. I started taking them that same day and I made very sure that I was eating well under the 30g of fat per ..." Read review

Quick review of Xenical

"Brilliant- Started taking Xenical in June 2007 and have lost 2.5 stones. Have had no side effects at all. The pill has actually motivated me to change my diet and I exercise 5 times a week. I am a bit scared about what will happen when I come off the pills, but I think that as long as I maintain everything I should still lose weight - hopefully!

Quick review of Xenical

"I was prescribed Xenical by my doctor as I had put weight on following an operation and despite dieting was not losing any weight. The side effects were not explained to me these being constant diahorraea. However I did persevere and had successful weigh loss over a period of 6 months. Apparently this is as long as they should be taken for. I did not put the weight back on and would take these again and also reccomend them. You must not eat fatty food whilst taking them as terrible stomach cramps may occur you must follow a healthy eating plan and I am sure you will then lose weight. In all a good tablet to help with weight loss

Maybe Iu should have given it more time but...

Advantages Rapid weight loss, 4 pounds in 1 day...

DisadvantagesAbsolutely horrendous side effects!! Be warned!!

"I could not cope with the horrendous side effects like explosive wind, wet farts, poo's that stain the toilet and smelly bathrooms. I am sorry for being frank but there should be a warning against this product. The first night after taking tablets during the day I farted in bed and the sheets were covered in a horrid orange gunk which came from my bottom. I followed the eating plan to the letter, making sure each food had less than 5% fat in it ..." Read review

Xenical worked for me!

AdvantagesIt speeds up weight loss and makes you careful about your diet.

DisadvantagesIt causes embarassing side effects if you slip up on your diet..

"I have been using Xenical for nearly 6 months now and have lost 3 stone. I am very pleased about this as I have been trying to lose weight for the past 25 years or more, but have never managed to stay on track. The main reason I think the drug has helped me lose weight is that it has made me aware of everything I eat - or am tempted to eat, because of the negative side effects from consuming too much fat. I haven't had any dreadful problems with side ..." Read review

Quick review of Xenical

"I have just started a course of Xenical and i'm can't wait to see the results......no side effects as yet just a bit of rumbling in my belly. http://xenclub.2usite.com I have started a forum if anyone would like to discuss their experiences of using Xenical.....i will also be keeping a daily diary on the forum so that i keep focused...The address is as follows http://xenclub.2usite.com Everyone feel free to join in. From the reviews i have read so far i feel that Xens could really be the answer....at the moment my weight is 22st5lbs and my BMI is 44... so i am very looking forward to the challenge ahead and fingers crossed i won't have to many problems with side effects. I think if i can lose on average of about 3/4 lbs aweek i will be happy.

XENICAL

Advantageseasy to take,

Disadvantagesmisguided logic, will not produce longlasting results

"After having a few diet stalls, the next thing to come into the media was diet pills. Xenical, the pill the GPS use, so it must be true then?? WRONG The pill itself, causes you to lose some, not all, but some of the fat you intake. It does this by expelling it as orange oily liquid, and poo. Fine if you can control it, but as time goes on that control goes with it, and soon its constant checking in the ladies, to check for stains, and running ..." Read review

xenical !!

Advantagesdoes work and contains willpower

Disadvantagesorange explosions

"Diet pills that work !!! Usually prescribed by the doctor but can be bought online. I tried this after my partner was on it for a month and it worked for him but he had to stop it as he's a lorry driver and the 'toilet thing ' was a problem for him. I was taking it before each meal that contained fat so usually 3 times a day.You take it before each meal or within an hour of having a meal. It did work for me but i think more through fear ..."
