Xenical is an anti-obesity medication. It works by preventing roughly one-third of the fat in your diet from being absorbed in your digestive tract.
Xenical binds to digestive enzymes (lipases) and prevents them from breaking down part of the fat you've consumed throughout your meal. Your body eliminates the undigested fat since it can't be absorbed.
Xenical is used to treat obesity when used in combination with a low-calorie diet.
