There are not many diet pills that are approved by the FDA. The diet pills that the FDA has approved are either a fat blocker or an appetite suppressant. The fat blocker that is approved by the FDA is the drug Orlistat. This diet pill comes in prescription (Xenical) and non-prescription (Alli) strength. On the other hand, the appetite suppressants that are approved by FDA are: Phentermine, Phendimetrazine, and Diethylpropion.
The FDA approved Xenical diet pill in 1999. It can only be obtained through a prescription. Orlistat (120 mg) is the active ingredient found in this diet pill. The best recommendation for taking Xenical is to combine the pill with a healthy diet and weight loss exercise plan. This diet pill blocks 30% of fat that is consumed instead of absorbing it into your body.
Within the intestinal tract there is an enzyme called Lipase. Lipase is the body’s natural way to break down fat. This allows your body to absorb the dietary fat. When you use Xenical it limits the action of the enzyme. When this enzyme is restricted your body dose not absorb as much fat. The fat that was not absorbed into your body is released through your stool.
• Those taking Xenical should eat a diet that is low in fat. By eating a low fat diet your risk of negative side effects is limited. The common side effects experienced are oily stools, gas and frequent bowel movements.
• A vitamin supplement should be taken while using Xenical. Vitamins found in fat soluble foods have difficulty being absorbed when you use this pill. Vitamin supplements work best when taken 2 hours prior to this diet pill.
2) Alli (Non-Prescription)
There is only one over-the-counter diet pill that is approved by the FDA - Alli. The diet pill has been available for purchase since the summer of 2007. Alli is the same diet pill as Xenical, however it is only half the strength. Alli contains 60 mg of Orlistat. Alli has the same effects and recommendations are the same as the diet pill Xenical.
