What is Orlistat and what is it used for?

Orlistat is a generic brand of medicine used to treat obesity; this is where you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or over. Orlistat can also be prescribed when your BMI is 28 or over and there are other risk factors present, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, that make weight loss favourable.

Orlistat is the active ingredient that helps to aid weight loss by preventing up to one-third of dietary fat from being absorbed by the body. Helping you to lose up to 5% of your body weight in the first 3 months.

If you are eligible and would like to buy orlistat from Star pharmacy, please fill in the questionnaire and our experienced pharmacist will get back to you. If you are suitable for treatment, a supply will be made, otherwise no supply will be made and a full refund will be given.

How does Orlistat work?

Orlistat works by blocking the enzymes in your gut that digest fat. Nearly a third of the fat that you eat is blocked by orlistat and the undigested fat is not absorbed into your body and is instead passed out with your stools.

For best results, Orlistat should be taken alongside a low-fat diet and exercise. If you eat a meal that does not contain any dietary fat you do not need to take your dose of Orlistat as it will not have any effect.

How to take Orlistat

The recommended dose is 1 x 120mg capsule taken with water immediately before, during or up to one hour after each main meal.

If a meal is missed or contains no fat, the dose of orlistat should be omitted.

Orlistat should be taken up to 3 times a day

You should be on a nutritionally balanced, mildy hypocaloric diet that contains approximately 30% of calories from fat. It is recommended that the diet should be rich in fruit and vegetables. The daily intake of fat, carbohydrate and protein should be distributed over three main meals

Orlistat results for weight loss

When combined with a low-calorie diet and exercise, Orlistat can help you to lose an extra 1lb for every 2lb you would lose by diet and exercise alone – an extra 50%. In clinical trials, almost twice as many obese patients who received Orlistat, achieved an average weight loss of 10% or more of their body weight in one year, compared to those on diet alone.

In addition, a significant number of patients who stopped Orlistat regained up 35% of the weight they had lost. It has also been shown to lower plasma insulin levels and fasting blood sugar levels, which should help control in patients with type-2 diabetes.
