What is Xenical?
Doc, I'm around 35kg's overweight. Do I need a prescription for the above? Is is some kind of weight-loss pill? How does it work and how much does it cost? I've tried everything, hope this will work for me. Please advise?

Dear Fatso
Yes you need a prescription and it binds fat in the gastro intestinal canal - it only works with a low fat diet anyway. Please talk to diet doc on the health 24 website too?
