    What kind of rash do you have? Where is it? Is it very itchy? Has it spread? Does it look like hives?

    Rash is reaction to the Xenical, as has happened to a few people. I had a very bad rash some time ago now (I'll check in my diary when it was) I had it for nearly 3 weeks and it drove me mad.. I was also taking green tea, I stopped taking the green tea in case it was that..

    The rash did go, never found out what it was :)

    The cramps are common with Xenical though, and they do settle down..Make a note of the day you start taking the Xenical and as soon as you start itching again make a note of that, plus anything different you'd had...you should be able to eliminate the cause of the rash... to be honest, it does sound like it could be the Xenical...when I had a rash and itching it did go after nearly 4 weeks...never found out what it was.

    I scratched myself so bad that Ileft scratch marks, my skin was red, sore and you could see where I had been bleeding. I had it on my wrists going up to bingo wing central and across my stomach :(

    I would wait until the rash has completely gone, then re start taking the Xenical, if the rash comes back then you know it's the Xenical. I got a steriod cream for the rash...

    There have been cases of rashed reported with Xenical.
