I have just started on Orlistat today and I'm really glad that I found this website before I began taking them! Your advice has given me some warning about what to expect that I think the leaflet with the medication played down somewhat! :roll:
I am 5' 9\" and weight 14.5 stone. I have been dieting on my own for about six months now, doing exercise everyday and the weight has not been coming off. I'd been to the doc before about my weight (I'd put on nearly 5 stone in under two years which I related directly to the contraceptive pill as I have always been slim and never had weight problems before) but she just said that I need to diet and exercise more!
After advice from my fiance and friend, I decided to keep a food diary so that I could show her exactly what I was eating, I also made a note of exercise and she agreed that I was doing everything right but no weight loss so prescribed Orlistat.
I must admit, when I read some of the nightmare side effects on here I was a bit put off but have decided that I will give them a go. To be forewarned and all that.
Like I said, today's my first day so we'll see. I'm so scared to eat anything with fat content though! :shock:
I'll let you all know how I get on.
