Has orlistat changed?

Posted , 8 users are following.

I was on it a year ago and when I went over my fats, I bloody knew about it. The orange oil is well known by all here I'm sure. Maybe I had an accident in public :o.

However due to a series of unfortunate events I went off it, and now I'm back on.

Thing is it's birthday week (there are 3! family birthdays this week) and whilst I've been very well behaved, I've definitely went over my fats. Not only that but generally I sometimes make mistakes as it still can be confusing for me, the rules on fats. I get a bit of an iffy tummy from that but none of the old effects.

I have lost weight regardless, a fairly good amount in 2 weeks I'll admit. I don't particularly miss that effect but at the same time it was a warning system, and above all it was kind of the way to know it was still working in my body.

Has it changed? I'm on the same dose amount as I was a year ago..

    I had the orange oil recently but only after I had got a bit over-confident and had eaten quite fatty foods for a few days running.

    It put me off using the tablets for a bit but I am back on them now and not keen to repeat the orange experience so being good so far :-)

      Yes I had a public accident, my mum couldn't stop laughing. Luckily it wasn't noticeable so I had a good laugh too over the fact I pooped mysel outside asda. Ok it was only the oil but never the less!

      I just think it's really bizarre I haven't had any. I definitely went over my fats by a fair amount one day. I was behaving in the calorie sense but the food was VERY fatty.

      It's just bizarrely a little upsetting to me. I do have an E.D though so I mean it'll make a bit of sense that I'm bothered about it.

      Maybe. Though plenty of people experience it in the first few days so eh. Maybe it's a person to person deal. Oh well, like I said, seems to be helping so smile. I was just curious. Thank you for replying!
