Hi all, I am new to all this and have a question, I have been taking orlistat for 7 weeks and have lost 12lb so far. This week I have had the most terrible wind :oops: and was wondering if this was due to the drug?

    Hello all

    I get a lot of wind,noiced an increase since the start of orlistat. My boyfriend has noticed too as it occurs more frequently at night when I'm sleeping :lol:

    My burping has also got a wee bit out of control!

    Also eat low carbs so might be a reason why. I agree,would rather have more wind and lose weight.it is not always pleasant bug at least it's not oily u guess...
