Week 3 Case Study Of Xenical 120 Mg

Satisfactory Essays
Xenical (Orlistat) 120 mg Xenical 120 mg is indicated for obesity management. Xenical was requested to treat obesity, which is an approved use by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). However, Medicare Part D did not cover drugs to treat anorexia, weight loss or weight gain. Xenical was also requested to treat elevated triglycerides, which is an off-label use (not approved by FDA). The Medicare approved compendia did not contain any citations to support the use for this condition. The drug was not prescribed for a medically accepted indication as defined by Medicare law. Agree with unfavorable decision.
