Xenical DOES work if you follow the instructions and heed the warnings!!! You can't expect to lose weight if you're not eating healthy and/or exercising. I learned this the hard way.

I'm a 20 years old male, weight over 220, high 5 feet 10. I started taking this drug when i couldn't fit into my jeans. I lost about 10 pounds in like 6 weeks after i started taking it eventhough i'm following wrong instruction like taking it before the meal. Now i'm following the instructions and i'm sure i'll get more satisfying results.
