Dear SASA
Xenical can help patients who are obese to lose weight as it acts as a true fat-trapper. Xenical is a schedule 5 drug which can only be prescribed by a medical dr. You can certainly obtain it on prescription at any pharmacy in SA. You use it together with a very-low-fat diet to lose weight.
