Side effects

Posted , 4 users are following.

I started orlistat 4 days ago and I know this may sound strange but waited for the obvious side effect of spending a lot of time on the lol and it hasn't happened! Is this normal or is something not working, does anyone know?

    I am exactly the same. I have eaten chip shop chips, chocolate and cake. Although I am aware that apart from the full portion of chips, everything else has been a small piece.

    So far no stomach upset or episodes on the toilet although I am going more frequently than before.

    Hi Ladies, a word of warning, trust me it will happen - particularly if you do not eat sensibly!

    Good luck x

    Oh it will come don't worry! Takes a while to work but when it does you'll know about it if you don't eat right. Just be careful xx
