The commonly used fat blocking drugs are Xenical and Alli. Both contain Orlistat as an active ingredient I understand that Alli has a lower percentage of the active ingredient.
The following is an extract from the Xenical Consumer Medicine Information sheet.
“XENICAL belongs to a group of medicines called lipase inhibitors. These medicines work by targeting the absorption of dietary fat in your body rather than suppressing your appetite.
Dietary fats are large molecules that need to be broken down before they can be absorbed into the body. They are broken down by enzymes called lipases. That is, lipases play an important role in the digestion of dietary fat. When taken with a meal, XENICAL interferes with the activity of these enzymes. This allows about 30% of the fat eaten in the meal to pass through the gut undigested. Therefore, your body cannot store these excess calories as fatty tissue or use them as a source of energy. This helps you to reduce your weight by burning up fat that you are already carrying, maintain your lower weight and minimise any weight regain….
Tell your pharmacist or doctor as soon as possible if you do not feel well while you are taking XENICAL.
XENICAL helps most people who are overweight or obese but it may have unwanted side effects in a few.
All medicines can have side effects. Sometimes they are serious, most of the time they are not. You may need medical treatment if you get some of the side effects.
The majority of unwanted effects related to XENICAL use result from its local action in your digestive system.
Ask your pharmacist or doctor to answer any questions you may have.
Tell your pharmacist or doctor if you notice any of the following and they worry you:
• increased flatulence (wind) with or without discharge
• abdominal pain
• urgent need to open the bowels
• oily, fatty or liquid stools
• oily discharge from anus.
Normally, these symptoms disappear if you continue treatment and keep to your recommended diet. These symptoms are generally mild, occur at the beginning of treatment, go away after a short period of time and are particularly experienced after meals containing high levels of fat…”
