Xenical, which is generically known as Orlistat, is a statin drug used to prevent and treat obesity. It is made by Roche Pharmaceuticals and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999. While Xenical, and its weaker over-the-counter cousin—Alli, is effective at treating obesity by preventing the absorption of fats by the body, there are serious concerns about its side effects, which might outweigh whatever benefits it has.
Researchers in Canada have found that people who use Xenical are more likely to develop kidney problems than those who do not use it. Approximately 2 percent of people taking Xenical will develop kidney problems according to this study.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has researched the effects of Xenical, after having approved it in 2007. In 2010, it has mandated the inclusion of a warning label on the packages of Alli and Xenical to mention that possibility of developing serious liver injury.
Researchers have been looking into the possibility that Xenical, and other Orlistat drugs, might cause cancer. However, research in this direction is not yet conclusive. Although, there does appear to be some correlation between Orlistat use and breast cancer.
Many consumer advocacy groups have been protesting Orlistat drugs because of their serious side effects.
