Section 18 of Republic Act No. 5921, more commonly known as the Pharmacy Law, states:
"No medicine, pharmaceutical, or drug of whatever nature and kind or device shall be compounded, dispensed, sold or resold, or otherwise be made available to the consuming public except through a prescription drugstore or hospital pharmacy, duly established in accordance with the provisions of this Act."
According to the Philippines Food and Drug Administration's List of Registered Drug Products, Xenical comes under the provisions of this Act and does technically require an authorized prescription.Source(s): http://www.bfad.gov.ph/oldsite/republic%20acts/RA%... http://www.bfad.gov.ph/default.cfm?page_id=1318&pa... http://www.chanrobles.com/presidentialdecrees/pres...

It's available at Mercury without prescription. No idea if that is against the law or not.
Orlistat is practically the only non-prescription, over-the counter weight loss drug, but at a lower dosage per tablet, brand name Alli. Xenical remains a prescription drug because of higher dosage. Either way, it's always beneficial to consult a doctor first.

Xenical is an over-the-counter anti-obesity drug so you don't need a prescription to buy it. It's readily available in Mercury Drug.
Hope this helps.Source(s): My pharmacist friend.

Before you can actually buy Xenical, you will be required to fill out a consultation form with accurate medical details. This will then be reviewed by a registered medical professional. Now all you need to do is wait for the doctor's approval in the form of a prescription which will then allow you take Xenical online.
If you are obese or overweight, using a simple process, anyone with a valid prescription can buy Xenical online. All you have to do is get a Xenical prescription. For this you will have to fill out a consultation form that is both detailed and accurate. If the doctor ensures you need the drug and you are found medically fit, you will get a prescription and then you can get Xenical online.

No. It is available over-the-counter and also online. But if you want to play it on the safe side, consultation with a doctor is highly recommended before taking on any drugs.
