Hi

I've been taking orlistat for just about a week now and have found myself really spotty. Has anyone else had this or could it just be the change in my diet?

Thankssmile

    Hi!

    ive been taking the pills for a few weeks now and the only skin change ive noticed is a couple of dry patches on my leg.

    perhaps taking a multi vitamin might help?

    Hiya...Ive been on them about a fortnight now and I started coming out in spots a week ago. Ive bought vitamins so hoping they will help. Apparently beta carotene helps with the skin, hair and nails.

    I have been on orlistat since June 2008 and have developed spots since starting the last pack. I am nearly 60 and have not had spots for 40 years.
