Dear Nanny
Because you have such a large amount of weight to lose, Xenical is a good option. The side-effects of Xenical may include deficiencies of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, but the prescribing dr will monitor this and probably prescribe supplements. I am not sure how much Xenical costs, but it is expensive so it is a good idea to have your dr motivate for you to obtain this medication on your chronic medical aid benefits if you belong to a medical aid.
Best regards

You need a prescription.. Consult your doctor, or just try eating healthy and balanced, you dont need these kind of medication. It takes long to pick up 30kg
