Orlistat 120MG Capsules 84 Capsules
Reduces the amount of fat the body absorbs
This medication is used with a doctor-approved exercise, behaviour change, and reduced-calorie diet program to help you lose weight.
Orlistat works by decreasing the amount of fat the body absorbs. Combined with some good diet and exercise, this can help you achieve significant weight loss.
Orlistat (Xenical) works by preventing about a third of the fat from the food you eat from being digested. The undigested fat is not absorbed and is passed out with your faeces.
This helps you avoid gaining weight but does not necessarily cause you to lose weight. Therefore, it’s still important to stick to your recommended diet and exercise plan.
Orlistat is usually recommended if you have made a significant effort to lose weight through diet, exercise or changing your lifestyle.
Even then, orlistat is only prescribed if you have:
- a body mass index (BMI) of 28 or more and other conditions related to weight, such as high blood pressure
- a BMI of 30 or more
Treatment with Orlistat (Xenical) must be combined with a low-fat diet and other weight loss strategies, such as doing more exercise. Orlistat is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
