Dear Nick
I have not yet seen comparative figures for weight loss with Reductil and Xenical. Discuss this with your doctor who will prescribe the given medication. Non-prescription diet pills that suppress the appetite are effective if used with a low-energy diet, but they all have negative side-effects that include addiction, so rather use the prescription products or lose weight with an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). While you are on the ‘Weight loss' site, read about every aspect of slimming (Diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects, etc) by surfing on this site.
