    Xenical and supplements

    Hi, does anyone know if I can take supplements during meals along with my xenical pill? I know you're supposed to take a multivitamin at least two hours after taking xenical, but what about other supplements, namely omega fish oil and garlic capsules? Do I have to wait two hours before taking any kind of vitamin/supplement? Can anyone help?

    Keep in mind that xenical works by preventing a portion of the fat you consume from being digested. Fish oil is a FAT, like any other fat in your diet. The xenical will block a significant amount of that fish oil from being digested, so you will be obtaining much less of those omega-3's than someone who is not on xenical.

    With respect to other supplements, it is best to check with a pharmacist or doctor before taking any supplement (even if they are 'natural' or 'herbal') to confirm that there are no contraindications with the xenical.
