Orlistat is a medicine used to treat obesity and can only be taken with a prescription. Orlistat is taken by mouth, 3 times a day along with fat-rich meals and helps you lose 50% more weight than you would without it. Orlistat works by preventing the body from absorbing about one-third of the fat in the food introduced by blocking the lipases (enzymes in the digestive system). It helps to break down some of the fat, making it undigestable and letting the body eliminate it through faeces. You can buy UK sourced Orlistat online from Pharmacy Direct GB, if you do not have a private prescription, choose "supply me with a valid prescription" to add to an online consultation.

Orlistat is used to treat obesity, however, it should not replace a low-calorie intake diet. Orlistat reduces the absorption of certain vitamins and nutrients such as Betacarotene and Vitamin E. For this reason, you are highly recommended to follow a diet rich in fruit and vegetables and your doctor might advise you take multivitamin supplements. 

Your daily intake of fat should be evenly distributed over the three meals and you should avoid eating high-fat snacks in between meals. As Orlistat should only be taken along with fatty foods, it would not have an effect if dietary fat is not present in your meal or if you skip it. Orlistat lets the body eliminate the undigested fats through the faeces, therefore you might experience different bowel habits such as fatty or oily stools. 

The usual dose of Orlistat is of one 120mg capsule taken with water along with the three main meals of the day. Orlistat can be taken before, during or up to an hour after a meal and should not be taken when pregnant or breastfeeding. 

As with any medicine, there are common and less common side effects. Orlistat's side effects are often connected to the digestive system. Some of the most common side effects include: 

  • Headache
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Flatulence with or without discharge 
  • Urgent or increased need to go to the toilet
  • Oily, fatty, soft stools
  • Low blood sugar
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Flu
  • Irregularity of menstrual cycle 
More serious and less common side effects include: 
  • Allergic reactions 
  • Pancreatitis
  • Gallstones
  • Skin blistering 
  • Diverticulitis
  • Increases in the levels of some liver enzymes 
  • Hepatitis (inflammation of the liver)
If you experience any serious side effect, stop taking Orlistat and contact your GP. 

You should always inform your doctor or pharmacist when planning to take a new drug as taking more than one medicine can alter the effectiveness of them. Orlistat is not intended for children and should not be taken without a prescription. 

You can purchase multiple packs of this product on a single prescription (3) packs. Buy Orlistat pills online today.
