GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY SCRIPT

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item

WARNING - MULTIPLE PACK PRESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

CONSUMER MEDICINE INFORMATION

What is in this leaflet
This leaflet answers some common questions about Xenical capsules. It does not contain all the available information.

It does not take the place of talking to your doctor or pharmacist.

All medicines have risks and benefits. Your doctor has weighed the risks of you taking Xenical capsules against the benefits they
expect it will have for you.

If you have any concerns about taking this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this leaflet with the medicine.

You may need to read it again.
What Xenical is used for
Xenical contains the active ingredient orlistat.

Xenical is to treat people who are overweight or obese.

Xenical belongs to a group of medicines called lipase inhibitors.

These medicines work by targeting the absorption of dietary fat in your body rather than suppressing your appetite.

Dietary fats are large molecules that need to be broken down before they can be absorbed into the body. They are broken down by
enzymes called lipases. That is, lipases play an important role in the digestion of dietary fat. When taken with a meal, Xenical
interferes with the activity of these enzymes. This allows about 30% of the fat eaten in the meal to pass through the gut
undigested. Therefore, your body cannot store these excess calories as fatty tissue or use them as a source of energy. This helps
you to reduce your weight by burning up fat that you are already carrying, maintain your lower weight and minimise any weight
regain.

Losing even small amounts of weight and keeping it off produces additional health benefits for you, especially when you are at risk
for other diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Xenical can also help to improve risk factors, such as high blood pressure,
high cholesterol and high blood sugar. If these are not treated, they could lead to other diseases such as hypertension and
diabetes.

Xenical should be taken in conjunction with a well-balanced calorie-controlled diet and other appropriate measures such as
exercise.

Your doctor, however, may have prescribed Xenical for another purpose.

Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Xenical has been prescribed for you.

Xenical is not addictive.

This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.
