Xenical, an obesity-fighting drug has been approved by Health Canada, and is now available to the public.

Taken three times per day in conjunction with a healthy diet (no more than 30 per ce>nt of calories from fat), Xenical reduces the body's ability to absorb fat. Patients adhering to a healthy diet are less susceptible to treatment effects. Patients are warned against combining Xenical with other anti-obesity medications.

At present, the patient cost for Xenical is $1.46 per capsule.
