Weight Loss Service

Looking to lose weight? Look no further.

At Carters Chemist we have many options to help you on your weight loss journey.

If you are overweight and are serious about losing weight, the Lipotrim Pharmacy Programme could help you reach your goal, knowing you have a highly trained healthcare professional on hand for information, advice and encouragement.

The programme involves using Lipotrim Total Food Replacement formulas in place of your regular meals and weekly visits to your pharmacy to monitor your progress.

An alternative option is to use a prescription-strength medication called Orlistat (Xenical). 

Orlistat is not an appetite suppressant, it works in your stomach and prevents your body absorbing some of the fat that you consume in food. It prevents certain enzymes called “lypases” from breaking down the fat you consume and therefore preventing it from being absorbed, the fat then passes out of your body undigested and reduces the number of calories that your body absorbs, helping you lose weight. Orlistat can be taken up to three times per day with breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It is advisable that you take a daily multivitamin supplement (containing vitamins A, D, E and K) as Orlistat can prevent the absorption of fat soluble vitamins.
