Can you take loperamide and Xenical together?

Can you take loperamide and Xenical together and have them both work? Iam hoping to stop the diarrohea from Xenical, but wonder if they would nullify each other? Also, does anyone know if the diarrohea abates the longer you take Xenical?

    my advice on this subject would be to never ask or accept advice from anyone other than a professional such as doctor when it comes to combining various medications because you have no idea as to whether the person giving the advice has a clue what they are talking about and if you act on bad advice it could have dire consequences. If the meds are bought over the counter in a pharmacist then ask the pharmacists advice - if the meds are prescribed then ask the doctor or person prescribing them - good luck

      Thanks - your line of advice is good advice. I always make informed decisions based on medical advice (which at times can be contrary), the medical information leaflet associated with any specific medication, plus the experience of others (the latter of which I am seeking to achieve with post).
