    Hi Jill 

    Feeling the same way. Feel like they've completely stopped working. First week was great. Second week they did nothing at all. Tested them on having a high fat meal, and no reaction.

    Hi jill, i just read your posts about xenical orlistat. This is my second week on them. 3 pills daily with low fat food. I feel a little lighter but not that difference. It seems you went through thr same. But turned out well at the end. Should i not give up?

      Diala, 

      Were you prescribed Orlistat by your doctor? Your BMI is too low, and I'm surprised a doctor will have prescribed this to you, as the lowest your BMI is meant to be is 28.
