Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
XENICAL is a prescription medicine used with a low calorie diet to increase weight loss in people with obesity. XENICAL may help obese people lose weight and keep the weight off.
How much would you take is unique for every person depending on weight and medical condition ,it varies but not exceeding 3 times/day, xenical 120 mg
some doctors depending on the patient and program diet would prescribe 2 times /day and not 3
something to know is that ,xenical shoul be taken with a meal containing fat ,meaning that if a meal is free of fat the dose og xenical is it depends on every one case
Take XENICAL exactly as your doctor tells you to take it.
Your doctor will tell you how much XENICAL to take and when to take it.
Take XENICAL with your meals or up to one hour after your meal. If you miss a meal or have a meal without fat, you can skip your dose of XENICAL.
-If you take a multivitamin, take it at least 2 hours before or after you take XENICAL. Bedtime is a good time to take your multivitamin.
-Take XENICAL with a nutritionally balanced, low calorie diet that has no more than about 30% of calories from fat. Taking XENICAL with any meal high in fat (more than 30% fat) may make the common side effects worse.
