Reductil Xenical
Hi Doc

Welcome to the forum!!
Please advise, is it safe to take Reductil and Xenical at the same time?
I have been on Reductil for 4 months (10mg) and my weight has not changed at all so I am considering taking Xenical at the same time.

Many thanks!!

Dear Maureen,
No, I wouldn't take both at the same time. It is one of the warnings the manufacturers put on the Xenical label. Remember that these type of tablets will let you lose only about 10% of your weight - usually about 5 kg. You must eat right and excercise to lose weight.
