Can I Get Orlistat Without Visiting The Doctor?
Essentially you have 2 options: Firstly you can pop over to a community pharmacy and after a quick 10-15 minute consultation with the Pharmacist, provided its suitable for you, you may be able to purchase the pharmacy-only version which is marketed under the brand name Alli (pronounced al-eye). Alli will be discussed in more detail below.
Pharmaceutically there is no difference between generic Orlistat and Xenical although Orlistat is generally available at a lower price. The other version is Alli which you may have seen advertised or on the shelf behind the chemist counter-however this Pharmacy only version is 60 mg.
So the primary difference between prescription orlistat (Xenical) and the non-prescription version (Alli) is the dosage. Xenical is dosed at 120 mg taken three times a day with meals, while Alli is dosed at 60 mg per dose again taken three times a day with meals.
However, Generic Alli 60 mg Caps come packaged with support materials and a useful consumer web site, both of which have shown to be very helpful for people as they begin the weight loss regime with Alli.
How does Orlistat work?
Orlistat is a potent, specific and long-acting inhibitor of gastrointestinal lipases. It exerts its therapeutic activity in the lumen of the stomach and small intestine by forming a covalent bond with the active serine site of the gastric and pancreatic lipases. The inactivated enzyme is thus unavailable to hydrolyse dietary fat, in the form of triglycerides, into absorbable free fatty acids and monoglycerides. Orlistat essentially stops the fat from your diet being absorbed into your body. Remember the body cannot digest unsplit fats so Orlistat basically helps to get rid of fats from the body unchanged.
How should Orlistat be taken?
The recommended treatment dose is one 60 mg capsule to be taken three times daily. No more than three 60 mg capsules should be taken in any 24 hour period. If a meal is missed or contains no fat, the dose should be omitted.
