Overview below summarizes cases of Xenical application, analyzes methods of drug functioning, provides necessary precautions and associated side effects that every patient should be aware of and consider throughout the treatment.

Comprehensive Background of Xenical?

Xenical is categorized as a prescription drug applied for treatment of the symptoms associated with obesity management accompanied by other risk factors or sicknesses, like diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia and others. Xenical can be taken on its own or in combination with other drugs. Xenical belongs to gastrointestinal agents type.

Administration of Xenical can also aid in preventing any potential regaining back the weight that had been lost. Reduction of weight and maintaining it low may reduce other health-related risks accompanying obesity, including shorter life as well.

Xenical functions by blocking the enzyme responsible for breaking down fats in patient’s diet. That undigested fat can be released from body via bowel movement. Xenical does not block the process of calories absorption from sugar and other non-fat foods, hence you are still required to control and limit the total calories intake.

The suggested dose of Xenical is one capsule (120-mg) 3 times per day together with every main meal that has fat content (within or about to 1 hour after the meal).

The patient is still required to maintain a nutritionally balanced diet, keep reduced calorie intake containing around 30% of calories from fat. The total intake per day of carbohydrates, protein and fat is to be divided into 3 major meals. In cases when a meal is missed or included no fat, the corresponding Xenical dose is allowed to be skipped.

Doses exceeding 120 mg 3 times per day have not been confirmed to exert any extra benefits. Depending on measurements of fecal fat, the effect of Xenical is observed within 24 – 48 hours after administration. Once the therapy is stopped, the fecal fat content generally reverts back to levels before treatment during 48 – 72 hours.

Summary of Precautions and Side Effects Caused by Xenical

Xenical, just like any other medication has got its own list of associated precautions and side effects, that every patient should be aware of and seek for immediate medical assistance, if any deviations from norms are observed. The following list includes the most frequently reported side effects caused by Xenical:

  • Flatus with discharge
  • Oily spotting
  • Oily/Fatty stools
  • Urgency to defecate
  • Oily evacuation
  • Frequent defecation
  • Fecal incontinence

During clinical trials whereas Xenical was taken by adolescent patients of 12 – 16 years old, the summary of adverse reactions was commonly similar to the ones reported in adult patients. Xenical is able to interact with concomitant medications like levothyroxine, cyclosporine, amiodarone, warfarin, antiretroviral meds, and antiepileptic drugs.

Summary of Xenical and cyclosporine interaction confirms a decrease of cyclosporine plasma percentage during simultaneous administration of Xenical and cyclosporine. Hence, Xenical and cyclosporine cannot be taken at the same time. To minimize the likelihood of a drug-to-drug interaction, it is advised to take cyclosporine minimum 3 hours prior to or after Xenical for patients who administer these both medications.
