Individuals must follow the proper medication schedule, monitor their food intake, take a multivitamin everyday, and set achievable goals for weight loss.

Individuals should start to see results in about two weeks, if individuals do not they should speak with their doctor. Take Xenical at a meal where fat is present, or three times a day. Take at the meal or up to an hour later. If no fat is present at the meal, or a meal is skipped, skip that dose of Xenical. An individual should talk with their doctor before starting on Xenical.
