I have been offered Orlistat by my GP in order to assist in weight loss. I'm 5'6\" and weigh 104kgs. I try to diet and exercise but struggle due with work hours and motivation.
I have read up on this drug on the internet and tried to weigh up the pros & cons.
The obvious side affects of bowel issues and wind I can deal with but I was wondering whether anyone had any of the potential liver problems.
Some of the stats say that in a survey, users of Orlistat lost between 2-3kgs more than someone not using it over a year. Well with a good diet and exercise maybe one would lose that anyway.
Also, what happens when you stop. Has anyone put the weight back one.
Any advice much appreciated.
