Other information
This medicine can cause harmless changes in your bowel habits, such as fatty or oily stools, due to the elimina-tion of undigested fat. The possibility of this happening may increase if Xenical is taken with a diet high in fat.
Your daily intake of fat should be distributed evenly over three main meals because if Xenical is taken with a meal very high in fat, the possibility of gastrointestinal effects may increase.
The use of an additional contraceptive method is recommended to prevent possible failure of oral contraception that could occur in case of severe diarrhoea.
