Than the xenical differs from orsotene

Everyone, especially women, gets frustrated because of excess weight. You can deal with it in different ways. Someone chooses a diet, someone doing sports, someone takes special medications. Very popular among users is to date, “Xenical” for weight loss. It is produced by a Swiss company. As a rule, it is recommended to patients who have obesity as a result of diabetes mellitus, hypertension or atherosclerosis.


The drug most commonly used:

  1. In combination therapy: with hypoglycaemic drugs (insulin, metformin). It helps to cure diabetes of the second type, which is accompanied by excess weight.
  2. For long-term therapy: Helps get rid of obesity (even if patients have risk factors for overweight).

How does Xenical work for weight loss?

The main active component of the drug “Xenical” for weight loss is orlistat. Due to the fact that this agent blocks almost 30% of all fats are excreted from the body without being absorbed. Feeling the approach of “difficult times”, the body begins to expend its supplies.

According to various sources, thanks to “Xenical” the weight of a person is reduced by 20-30%. The drug has many advantages. One of the most important is the fact that it is not absorbed into the blood, so there is no addiction and negative impact on the organs.


Carrying out studies on volunteers who did not differ in excess weight, experts noticed that “Xenical” had practically no effect on the body. Quite often orlistat can be detected in small amounts in the plasma. Cumulation is absent, so you can say that the minimum amount of the drug is absorbed.

Due to poor absorption of the means, it is rather difficult to determine Vd. The binding of orlistat with plasma proteins occurs by 99%. Sometimes a small amount of active substance can penetrate into the red blood cells.

The process of exchange orlistat passes in the stomach (in particular, on its walls). The amount of the drug that is not absorbed is excreted through the feces (97% of the dose that was taken and 83% of pure orlistat).

The use of Xenical for weight loss during pregnancy

This drug is in the category B. That is, in the course of studies in various animals no risks to the fetus were found, but clinical trials were not conducted. At the same time, several side effects were noted, which, however, did not lead to complications in fetal development.

Pregnant women “Xenical” are not prescribed, because there are no necessary clinical data on the risks.

Contraindications for use

Of course, all drugs that help to reduce excess weight, have contraindications. “Xenical” was no exception. It can not be accepted:

  1. Patients on cholestasis.
  2. Those who are under 18 years of age.
  3. Patients with chronic malabsorption syndrome.
  4. When intolerance of its components, in particular, orlistat.

Side effects

Typically, side effects from the use of “Xenical” occur in the gastrointestinal tract, as a drug prevents the absorption of fats in the intestine. Many patients after consuming means oily appearance point of discharge from the anus, gases with small amounts of precipitates, steatorrhea, diarrhea and frequent urge to defecate, different intensity abdominal discomfort (sometimes painful sensations), flatulence.

It should be noted that by increasing the amount of fat that enters the body through food, and increases the possibility of side effects. Also increases and their frequency. Before assigning means patients need to be informed about all the negative consequences, and to tell you what to do to overcome them (special diet).

Typically, patients suffer from side effects only in the first 3 months of admission. Often they are so small that their patients do not notice. More frequent effects include: discomfort and pain in the rectum, the appearance of feces, “soft”, swelling, inability to hold back bowel movements, problems with gums and teeth. Often appear headaches, infections, weakness, dysmenorrhea and causeless alarm.

Dosing and Administration Xenical for weight loss

In addition, “Xenical” for weight loss is part of the combination therapy. The patient must first go to a special low-calorie diet, reduce fat intake, and then take this remedy. For example, if in your daily menu the calorific value was about 2000 kcal, then you can consume only 67 g of fat, evenly distributing them for the whole day. Therefore it is necessary to consult a specialist.

Please note that “Xenical” for weight loss should be taken only under the careful supervision of a doctor, especially if you suffer from diabetes, kidney stones.

The therapy lasts two months. Every day the patient takes one capsule of the drug before meals (the number of capsules depends on the number of meals). But, if you neglected fats during any reception, then the capsule can not be drunk. Thus, the average dosage is one to three capsules per day. If you forgot to drink the drug, do it later is not necessary.

Due to the fact that “Xenical” does not work well for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, it is necessary to add to the therapy the use of multivitamin complexes. They need to be taken two hours after the drug is consumed.


Carrying out clinical studies, experts noticed that even with an increased dose of the drug (800 mg per day), there are no undesirable negative effects. Even if people who are overweight, increase the dose of intake (240 mg three times a day with the duration of therapy in six months), there are no significant negative consequences.

If the overdose was too pronounced, you need to monitor the condition of the patient within 24 hours.

Interactions with other drugs

Biguanides, amitriptyline, digoxin, atorvastalin, fibrates, losartan, fluoxetine, oral contraceptives, phenytoin, pravastatin, phentermine, nifedepine, warfarin, alcohol, sibutramine do not interact with orlistat. But in some cases, you need to monitor the patient’s condition in addition.

“Xenical” with some vitamins (tocopherol, cholecalciferol, betacarotene) can reduce their absorption. If the patient simultaneously takes cyclosporine, the concentration of the latter decreases in plasma. When taking this drug with amiodarone, systemic exposure of desethylamiodarone and amiodarone decreases. Sometimes convulsions may develop with the simultaneous administration of orlistat and medications for the treatment of epilepsy.

Is there any difference between the expressions different from, different than, and different to? Is one of the three ‘more correct’ than the others?

In practice, different from is by far the most common of the three, in both British and American English:

We want to demonstrate that this government is different from previous governments. (British English)

This part is totally different from anything else that he’s done. (American English)

Different than is mainly used in American English:

Teenagers certainly want to look different than their parents.

Different to is much more common in British English than American English:

In this respect the Royal Academy is no different to any other major museum.

Some people criticize different than as incorrect but there’s no real justification for this view. There’s little difference in sense between the three expressions, and all of them are used by respected writers.

In order to avoid infinite loops, the compiler normally requires that the constraints of an instance are “smaller” than the instance itself, so that the algorithm will terminate. Your instance does not make a any smaller in the constraints, so that’s what the compiler is complaining about.

The UndecidableInstances extension lifts this restriction, leaving it up to you to prove that it will terminate. It’s thus possible to send the compiler into an infinite loop when using this extension.

The common solution to this is to add a newtype:

newtype ByNorm a = ByNorm a  instance (EuclideanDomain a, Eq a) => Ord (ByNorm a) where     compare (ByNorm x) (ByNorm y) = compare (norm x) (norm y) 

Now the constraints are smaller than the instance head, as they strip off the newtype. No extension required.

The basic notions of grammar are the grammatical meaning, the grammatical form and the grammatical category.

Grammatical meaning = the plane of content

Notional words, first of all verbs and nouns, possess some morphemic features expressing grammatical (morphological) meanings.

Gr. meaning:

  • abstract

  • general

  • indirect. (the gram. meaning depends on the lexical meaning and is connected with objective reality indirectly, through the lexical meaning).

  • obligatory (gram. meaning must be expressed if the speaker wants to be understood)Ex. Woggles uggled diggles (more than approx. 4 did smth in the past)

  • relative/ oppositional, it is revealed in relations of word forms: speak-speaks, dog -dogs

The gram. meaning must have a grammatical form of expression ( inflexions, analytical forms, word-order..) Compare the word forms walks, is writing. Both forms denote process, but only the second form expresses it grammatically.

Grammatical meanings are very abstract, very general. Therefore the grammatical form is not confined to an individual word, but unites a whole class of words, so that each word of the class expresses the corresponding grammatical meaning together with its individual, concrete semantics.

The grammatical form presents a division of the word on the principle of expressing a certain grammatical meaning.

Grammatical form = the plane of expression

Grammatical Morphological Form

= “forms”

= individual gr. forms – dog-dogs

Grammatical Syntactic Form

= distribution

The term form may be used in a wide sense to denote all means of expressing grammatical meanings. It may be also used in a narrow sense to denote means of expressing a particular grammatical meaning (plural, number, present tense, etc.)

Grammatical elements are unities of meaning and form, content and expression. In the language system there is no direct correspondence of meaning and form. Two or more units of the plane of content may correspond to one unit of the plane of expression (polysemy; homonymy). Two or more units of the plane of expression may correspond to one unit of the plane of content (synonymy).

(то же самое,но по конспекту) Every gram. unit is a unity of gr. meaning (the plane of content) and gr. form ( the plane of expression)


There is no direct correspondence between gr.meaning and gram. form

2 or more unit of the plane of expression may correspond to 1 unit of the plane of content ex. boys-children



2 or more units of the plane of content may correspond to 1 unit of the plane of expression ex. – s inflexion dogs, asks, greens

Grammatical category

is a generalized gram. meaning realized through formal and meaningful opposition of variants of one and the same unit.

Any gram. category is represented by at min. 2 categorial forms. Otherway it does not exist because a grammatical category is a representation of a general meaning

var. its particular manifestations.

The method of opposition

The opposition (in the linguistic sense) may be defined as a generalised correlation of lingual forms by means of which a certain function is expressed. The correlated elements (members) of the opposition must possess two types of features: common features and differential features. Common features serve as the basis of contrast, while differential features immediately express the function in question.

Trubetskoy -> Smirnitskiy

Partially similar elements (i.e. means elements having common and distinctive features) constitute an opposition, the members of which differ in form and meaning :

Dog-dogs Common – plane of expression, number

Diff. – in form and meaning of quantity

The oppositional theory was originally formulated as a ; phonological theory. Three main qualitative types of oppositions were established in phonology: “privative”, “gradual”, and “equipollent”. By the number of members contrasted, oppositions were divided into binary (two members) and more than binary (ternary, quaternary, etc.).

Types of oppositions

(1)According to the number (2) qualitatively:

of members (elements) opposed

  • binary – 2 members -privative ex. ask⁻ – asked⁺(binary)

  • tertiary – 3 members -equipollent ex. am⁺ – is⁺(binary)

  • quaternary – 4 members (both elem are marked)

-gradual- gradation- only in ->degrees of comparison (ex. good – better-the best – tertiary)

*(объяснение,чтоб было понятно)The most important type of opposition is the binary privative opposition; the other types of oppositions are reducible to the binary privative opposition.

The binary privative opposition is formed by a contrastive pair of members in which one member is characterised by the presence of a certain differential feature (“mark”), while the other member is characterised by the absence of this feature. The member in which the feature is present is called the “marked”, or “strong”, or “positive” member, and is commonly designated by the symbol + (plus); the member in which the feature is absent is called the “unmarked”, or “weak”, or “negative” member, and is commonly designated by the symbol — (minus).

The equipollent opposition is formed by a contrastive pair or group in which the members are distinguished by different positive features.

For instance, the phonemes and , both bilabial consonants, form an equipollent opposition, being sonorous nazalised, being plosive.

The gradual opposition is formed by a contrastive group of members which are distinguished not by the presence or аbsenсе of a feature, but by the degree of it.

For instance, the front vowels form a quaternary gradual opposition, since they are differentiated by the degree of their openness (their length, as is known, is’ also relevant, as well as some other individualising properties, but these factors do not spoil the gradual opposition as such).

In various contextual conditions, one member of an opposition can be used in the position of the other, counter-member. This phenomenon should be treated under the heading of “oppositional reduction” or “oppositional substitution”.

Oppositional reduction

The opposition looses its formal distinctive force

  1. Neutralization – the weak member acquires the meaning of a strong member

Ex. We leave for Moscow tomorrow.( the opposition “present – future” is reduced)

+Bloh Man conquers nature.

The noun man in the quoted sentence is used in the singular, but it is quite clear that it stands not for an individual person, but for people in general, for the idea of “mankind”. In other words, the noun is used generically, it implies the class of denoted objects as a whole. Thus, in the oppositional light, here the weak member of the categorial opposition of number has replaced the strong member.

2. Transposition – one of the members of the opposition (usually a strong one) is used in context uncommon for it and stands in contradiction with its regular gram. meaning He is always complaining.

Grammatical morph. Categories ( Smirnitskiy)

  • Semantic – depending on and showing objective properties of referents – ex. the category of Number

these are dominational

  • Relational – showing the relations between the word – forms in a sentence –ex. the category of Case

these are subordinate

One grammatical form of a word is a sum of several categorial forms/ meanings


  • past tense

  • non- continuous aspect

  • non-perfect order

  • active voice

But only the category of tense is marked in this form: ask – askedwas asking– asked ( the category of Aspect), had asked – asked (the cat. of Order), was askedasked ( the cat. of Voice)
