Hi! Been on/off orlistat for 6 months & just looked on this site for some support. My GP gave me none - I was scared to death when the orange oil appeared!! GP just said orlistat prevented fat being digested so that its excreted with the waste. Nothing about needing to be on a low fat diet, nothing about side effects. My biggest problem is the SMELL of the oil. No-one seems to have mentioned this - does anyone else have it? I'm a teacher so can't be dashing off to the loo, nor working with an awful pong in my pants! Also, after an initial loss of 4lbs in the first week, theres been no further weightloss. Is anyone else finding that they don't really work? Any tips very welcome.
