Hi, i am new to this site and have just taken my first orlistat prescribed by my GP.
I suffer from chronic FM and have been on Gabapentin and long list of medication for the last two years. The result is I have gained 4 stone and am in no postion to exercise.
My GP does not know if this will help with the weight gain but wants me to have a go on orlistat .
I hope there is some support and advice on how I approach trying to loose weight and maintain a positive outlook. What are the main side effects and please be candid about the orangey thing that has been mentioned.
