I have been on Orlistat for 5 days also. I experience, terrible headaches, swollen stomach, weight gained of 5 lbs in 5 days. Adding to the wind and constantly running to the toilet. In addition all my bedsheets are now oily orange. The only way I have overcome this was to reduce my intake to two a day instead of three. I have also increase my workout at the gym, and vegetable intake. I will keep you posted as the weeks goes on.

    OMG :o Thats terrible. Are you sure you're eating just your allowance of fat each day?

    I do my best to stick to it, and have only been affected with the orange oil a couple of times.

    Hi Dooghir,

    I too have experience the same aprt from the gain. I have found the headaches ( i suffer from Mirgaines) are most likely due to dehydration, Up the fluid intake and remember if your meal does not contain fat there is no need to take a pill.

    I have had a blinder migraine for 2 days now and my usual meds for it are not working. I think it coz I have not had enought water to replace the lost fluid down the toilet!!! :wink:

    I hope this helps

    Keep on trucking!

    thank you to all. I have increased my water intake to 2 litres a day. Normally my diet is very good. i.e Oats with organic semi-skimmed milk in the morning.

    Lunch: 1 pkt of green organic salad, with coconut oil, oilve oil, cayn pepper, omega 3,6, and 9 oil. and fruits for afters, plenty of fruits, plums, strawberry, mangos, blueberry, whatever ids in season at the time

    Dinner: large portion of mixed veg, two pieces of fish, corn feed chicken or organic meat- and more fruits.

    1 cup of green tea before bedtime- with my supplements.

    gym workout 3 to 4 times a week including aerobics workout.

    i am not a chocolate or biscuit person- but will have the occasional M&M

    Hiya,

    Coconut OIL.....Olive OIL... I`d hazard a guess and say this is why ur running to the loo.

    Ud be surprised at the amount of fat that some HEALTHY foods contain.

    Hi doohgir,

    Skye is right the tabs can't tell good fat from bad :? So even if you're eating GOOD fat it is still fat as far as the tabs are concerned and approx 1/3 of all the fat you eat you will pass through your system.

    I feel heartly sorry for you as on a NORMAL diet what you're eating would be classed as pretty good :!:

    So watch your TOTAL fat intake not just saturates and hopefully it will all settle down :wink:
