Hi I took xenical for almost 1 year and believe me the side effects will catch up to you in about a day or so!! Or at least that is what happened to me!! It does work but towards the end I stopped using it and I gained back some weight because I wasnt eating healthy like i should....Good Luck Cindy
I have been on Xenical for two weeks now. My side effects have been mild to moderate at worst. Like you, I eat relatively healthy anyway. My concern is, even with additional exercise, I am seeing no budge of the bulge. Not a pound. My doc had said 3 weeks, but seriously, I just don't know if I will stay with this pill or not. My problem has always seemed to be more metabolism based, I have thyroid problems and have painfully slow met. I do wish you much luck. I will let you know if anything drastic starts to happen. :)

I'd appreciate that. I am just entering my third week on it today and my weight is fluctuating dramatically within a five pound range but I still haven't gone below that one magic number that I was two pounds away from on the day I started. :(

Hopefully it will get better. Though I am willing to give it a few months since I can tolerate the side effects when they happen.
