Orlistat is the generic version of Xenical and it is used in the treatment of obesity. The drug is designed for people who are classiﬁed as medically obese, meaning they have a body mass index (BMI) of over 30. It can also be used by people with a BMI of over 28 who also have health complaints that are related to weight, such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
The treatment reduces the amount of fat that the body absorbs from food and for the best results, it should be used in conjunction with lifestyle and dietary changes.
For some people, obesity is an everyday struggle and conventional methods of weight loss, like dietary changes and an increase in activity levels, are not enough. By altering the way your body processes fat, Orlistat can help you to keep your weight under control and improve your ﬁgure. In turn, this may boost your conﬁdence and raise your overall quality of life. The treatment can also enhance your health by reducing your risk of a range of weight-related medical complaints, including diabetes, stroke and certain cancers.
Orlistat is a weight loss treatment which has been approved for sale online. It was originally approved in its branded form known as Xenical before the generic version, Orlistat, came on to the market. You can arrange a free and conﬁdential consultation online with one of our doctors at Click Pharmacy who can then assess your suitability for the product before drawing up a prescription and sending your medication to you direct by Next day Delivery where possible.
Clinical trials of Orlistat showed that in just 12 weeks, 67% of the participants had lost 5 % of their body weight through the use of Orlistat alongside healthy eating and increased activity. 62% went on to lose 10% after 12 months.
Usually, within around 24 hours the body begins excreting excess fat from food through bowel movements and it is this process which enables users to lose 50% more weight than if they were simply using a balanced lifestyle plan of increased exercise and lower calorie eating alone.
3 tablets should be taken over the course of the day and any more than this has not been shown in trials to make any further difference to weight loss.
Dosage instructions are provided with the treatment and if you have any questions on this subject, you can get in touch with your doctor or consult our specialists at Click Pharmacy.
Orlistat capsules, which contain 120mg of the active ingredient, are usually taken three times a day with water immediately before, during or shortly after meals that contain fat, though the tablets must be taken within an hour of eating.
You need not to take a capsule if you do not eat, or else if you eat a meal deﬁcit in fat as, for the medication to work, 30% of each meal needs to contain fat.
Orlistat works by acting as a lipase inhibitor, attaching to the enzymes which break down the fat in your food, so the body cannot absorb them. In other words, it reduces the amount of fat that your body keeps within it by up to 30%, passing out, instead, through your stools. By reducing fat intake in this simpliﬁed way, it makes it easier to not only lose the weight in the ﬁrst place but to also maintain the loss once you have reached your target goal. However, to achieve the best possible results, it is important to make lifestyle changes too. These may include eating more healthily, cutting down on alcohol consumption and doing more exercise.
As Orlistat is designed to block fat from being absorbed, it can also make it harder for your body to absorb certain important vitamins. As such, it is important to take a fat-soluble multivitamin at least 2 hours before or after taking an Orlistat tablet each day. This supplement should include vitamin A, D, E, K and beta carotene.
The side effects most commonly associated with Orlistat include abdominal discomfort, sweating, nausea, loss of appetite, wind accompanied by an oily discharge, a sudden need to open the bowels and oily or liquid stools.
Such side effects tend to occur in the ﬁrst 2 weeks of taking the medication as the body gets used to the effects of Orlistat. It is advised that you speak to your GP or a doctor at Click Pharmacy if these symptoms persist or worsen after this time.
Despite the fact that you are taking a medication designed to stop the absorption of fat, it is not recommended to continue eating an unhealthy and high-fat diet because this can lead to unpleasant gastrointestinal side effects also.
If you would like additional information about these potential symptoms, you can contact your doctor or speak to our experts.
With the body no longer absorbing such a large amount of fat in each of your meals, you instead start to use and burn off the fat already stored in your body for your day to day energy usage.
So, depending on the other lifestyle changes you make, Orlistat should make a difference to your weight loss within around 2 weeks and can help you in losing around 5% of your body weight within 12 weeks.
