It could be. But weight loss products are suitable only for people whose BMI is at least 30 (or 28 if you have other risk factors such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes). So it’s important that you check to see what your BMI is first.
You can use the NHS healthy weight calculator for this. The calculator will reflect if you’re of a healthy weight, and the amount of weight you should aim to lose if you’re overweight.
Xenical is a capsule treatment, so if capsules are a preferred form of weight loss medication for you, it may be the right fit for you on this basis. If you’re not able to take capsules however, or if your personal preference is another form of treatment, Mysimba or Alli are tablet weight loss products. We also offer Saxenda, which’s an injection.
Whether Xenical is the best weight loss product for you may also depend on your susceptibility to certain side effects, if you have a particular health condition, or if you are currently taking other medication that may interact with Xenical. Our clinician will take these factors into consideration as part of your EveAdam consultation, and determine if it’s a safe and appropriate treatment for you.
