Although Xenical is proven to help people lose weight better than any other medication available, there are still potential side effects that may occur when using the treatment. On this page we highlight the reported Xenical side effects from previous clinical trials. Read on to find out more.
What are the common Xenical side effects?
During clinical studies, the most commonly reported side effects occurred within the digestive system. This is not unexpected, considering how orlistat tablets work. This type of Xenical side effects included:
- Oily spotting in up to 26.6 percent of people
- Abdominal pain or discomfort in up to 25.5 percent
- Gas with a small amount of oil or stool in up to 23.9 percent

What can be done to reduce these Xenical side effects?
Fortunately any problems that arise in the digestive tract can be avoided or reduced by decreasing the amount of fat in your diet. This treatment works by decreasing the absorption of fat, and as more fat stays in the digestive tract, it can lead to many of the embarrassing side effects mentioned above. The likelihood of these side effects happening is high if you eat too much fat. As you continue the treatment, your body will adjust to the drug and you will also learn how different foods and different amounts of fat affect you.
How quickly do these Xenical side effects happen?
Not all side effects come on straight away; it may take days to notice any adverse reaction to the drug. When used over the long term, studies show that Xenical side effects occurred less often.
