Can you still take xenical aftere surgery



Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone continued to take diet pills after surgery and before their first fill. Such as Xenical or ALLI, were there any side effects?

Yes you can still take xenical if you can get the pill(s) down. I do it when i cheat on my diet.

Ideally, you wont need to anymore, the whole point of being banded is not having to do that stuff any more.

Although I think its cruel not to prescribe an appetite suppressant for the pre op diet, lol.

I take it whenever I want, I just open the pill and dump it towards the back of my throat with a drink. I've had no problems. I havent had a fill yet so I am eating too much.

Thank you every body for the quick responses. I am starving here with no fills but I am really trying not to over eat. I am really thinking abou the xenical until my first fill... but I wll ask my doctor tomorrow just to be on the safe side

Let us know what he says. I have almost a full box of Alli that never really got used before but now that I have the band (and when I start real food), maybe it would come in handy until my first fill or two start working.

Thanks in advance!

I went to the doctor yesterdy and he says yes I can use the xenical and meridia until my first fill. I am very happy about that

I'd also like to add that, while obvious to many (though a good reminder for others), Xenical and Alli only 'work' when you've eaten food that has some amount of fat in it.

Therefore, it's completely unproductive to take the pills if you're just having a fat-free popsicle or something else that has no fat or almost no fat. If you were to take the Xenical and Alli in these cases, you'd just be wasting your money.

So make sure to only use them when they'll actually aid your weight loss.

Good luck!!! :crying:

Okay, just to be clear...........Xenical is a fat blocker NOT an appetite suppressant. Also with the band we are already giving up certain nutrients that our bodies need therefore we must take supplements. How do we know if the fats that the xenical block aren't the good fats our bodies rely on??? I would say consult your surgeon. ALSO, I am sorry to sound like I am preaching but when you chose the life style of being banded you knew there were certain things you should no longer eat. If you do, don't cheat do the healthy thing and hit an extra mile on the tread mill..... Not judging, I am just saying! Good luck to you all!!!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
