About weight loss pills

  • Who can take weight loss pills

    We can only prescribe weight loss treatment if your BMI is above 30 (or 28 if you have a risk factor such as diabetes). In your consultation questionnaire we'll work out your BMI. We'll also ask about other medicines you're taking, any conditions you have, and whether you're pregnant. The questionnaire is completely confidential, and we'll use the information to ensure the treatment you have requested is safe to take.

  • How do weight loss pills work

    The weight loss treatments we prescribe come as a capsule. You swallow 1 of these within an hour of eating breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nearly a third of the fat that you eat is blocked by the treatment. The undigested fat is not absorbed into your body and is passed out with your stools (faeces). These capsules should not be used long-term, and are there to support lifestyle changes like healthy eating and increased exercise.

  • Weight management

    The goal with weight management should be to reach a healthy weight for your height and build, and to maintain it. Achieving sustainable results and staying at your goal weight is best done by making adjustments to your lifestyle, being more active and eating a balanced diet. However, it is possible that prescription treatments can help you reach your goal weight. If you have any concerns about sudden weight gain, you should see your GP for advice.

  • Our weight loss clinic

    We can prescribe either Orlistat, or its branded version, Xenical. Request the treatment you'd like and complete the medical questionnaire. We will use this information to ensure that the treatment is safe and suitable for you. If approved, your first prescription must be collected in-store so your height and weight can be checked – this is for your safety. Thereafter, you can select either collection or delivery.
