    Is there still a website for xenical/orlistat?

    Someone mentioned a starting pack? Where would I get one?

    Hi Irene the xenical is from ur gp on prescription and the alli is from the chemist which is much weaker.
    I have just dug out the paperwork that come with the Xenical and cant see anything bout a starter pack.
    Here is the link for the website http://www.alli.co.uk/

    I've got xenical/orlistat from the doctor. Just trying to decide whether to give it a go.

    I never know which name to call it

    I've heard if the doc prescribes it you can request the starter pack. I think it's mentioned in the paperwork in the drug pack.

    Oh, and I think it's the actual drug/active ingredient that's called orlistat and Xenical is the brand name (like Nurofen and Ibuprofen)

    I was prescribed it over a year ago so probably dont have the paperwork anymore. Maybe I saw it somewhere on t'internet when I was checking if the side effects were normal! Sorry for confusion.X
