Intensive Crit Care Nurs. 1999 Oct;15(5):298-9.

Orlistat (Xenical).

Abstract

The introduction of orlistat (Roche, UK) at the end of last year received considerable media coverage and was heralded in some quarters as the 'quick fix' for those wishing to lose weight without the pain of dieting. This description is far from accurate but treatment with orlistat may have a role in patients for whom obesity is a serious and even life-threatening condition.
