  • Overview

    What is Orlistat?

    Orlistat has proven in clinical trials to block around one third of all fat consumed with meals. Working directly in the stomach, orlistat can help to make weight loss more effective than with a healthy diet and increased exercise alone. Patients are supported lose around 5 to 10 percent of their initial body weight. The effect of Orlistat can also help to develop a better consideration and understanding of how much you eat and what you are consuming, eventually lowering your intake of snacks and unhealthy food.

    Orlistat can only be purchased by those classed as obese with a BMI of over 30, or a BMI of 28 with underlying health conditions.

  • How does Orlistat work?

    The active ingredient in orlistat is called orlistat that works to prevent enzymes from breaking down fat that is then absorbed into the body. The excess fat is then passed through your system.

    It is important to adjust your lifestyle to a healthy diet and exercise regime to achieve best results and avoid unpleasant side effects.

  • How to take Orlistat?

    Taking Orlistat tablets is simple, however there are certain ways you can get the most out of the medication:

    • The optimum time to take orlistat is during your meal or an hour post-meal
    • One Orlistat tablet should be taken with water three times a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
    • Avoid heavy meals rich in fat as this may increase your chance for side effects.

    Orlistat is simple to take, and following these guidelines from medical professionals can subdue symptoms and help you lose weight much quicker:

    • Not only does a low-fat diet help to lose weight, but many side effects significantly reduce when monitoring      the fat and oil content of your meals
    • Orlistat is most effective when teamed with exercise and a low-fat diet
    • Closely monitor your weight loss during the first 12 weeks of treatment with orlistat. If you have lost less          than  5% of your starting weight, you should consider alternative treatments. (Smaller weight loss may be        acceptable for people with preexisting conditions such as diabetes.)
  • Side Effects

    There are not many side effects associated with orlistat orlistat tablets other than a change in bowel movements. As 30% of fat isn't being absorbed, yet passed through your system, it comes out in stools and flatulence as an oily discharge.

    This highlights the importance of altering your diet to only contain low-fat/ low-oil foods as then, this side effect is significantly reduced. If you eat high calorie, greasy or oily meals whilst taking orlistat, this can result in uncontrollable bowel movements. Other side effects include low blood sugar, tiredness or rectal pain.
