Staring my Journey on Orlistat

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi I am new to this kind of forum discussion so please bear with me. Started Orilstat on Friday and I really dont think its working (not sure what I was expecting) but have had a really sore head , tummy and back and have been really constipated.  has anyone else experienced this in the first few days .  I have bought some all bran to see if that helps me feel less heavy.  Thanks

    Hi, this will only work if you are actually eating fat? Have you been eating naughtily or healthily?

      Hi maria nice to meet you - I have been the same just watching the fat content in things but I just feel nothing is happening and wondered if you need to eat fatty things for it to actually get kick started any ideas ?
