Orlistat Pharmaceutical Information

Medication Information: If you are obese or overweight, Orlistat is a medication that can help you lose weight. It works by interfering with the digestion and absorption of fat in the body. It blocks the action of enzymes in the digestive juices of the stomach and small intestine. These enzymes normally break down the fats you consume in your diet and cause them to enter and be absorbed into the bloodstream. By blocking the action of these enzymes by this drug, the digestion of fat in the body is reduced. In fact, it helps your body lose weight instead of absorbing the fat you eat, which helps you lose weight.

Orlistat only blocks the absorption of about one-third of the fat you eat, so to lose weight, you need to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Orlistat should be obtained with a doctor's prescription, but low-strength (low-dose) capsules under the Alli brand can be purchased from pharmacies. There are suitable people, there are some that you must read.

 

Contraindications to the use of orlistat

  • If you do not have fat in the food you eat or if you have not eaten a meal, you do not need to take this pill.
  • Pay attention to the expiration date of the medicine and do not take it if the medicine in your hand has expired.
  • Never give the medicine to anyone else, even if you have the same symptoms.

 

Orlistat drug interaction

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter medicines and herbal products) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Some medications that may interact with this medication include "blood thinners" (such as warfarin).

If you are taking medication to treat seizures, orlistat may affect the effectiveness of these medications. Stop taking orlistat and ask your doctor about taking this medicine first, as taking orlistat with anticonvulsant medications may make your seizures worse and make you feel worse.

 

Tips to consider before taking orlistat

Some medications are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and some medications may be prescribed if additional treatment is needed. Therefore, it is best for your doctor to be aware of the following before taking orlistat:

  • If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant or are breast-feeding.
  • If you have any kidney problems.
  • If you have a condition called chronic malabsorption syndrome (food is not absorbed properly).
  • If you have a condition called cholestasis (a problem with the flow of bile to the liver).
  • If you are currently taking certain medications. These medicines include all the medicines available, whether you are prescribed them or taking them without a doctor's prescription, such as herbal medicines and complementary medicines.
  • If you have a history of an allergic reaction to a drug.

 

Possible side effects of Orlistat

All medications can cause side effects. But many consumers also do not experience any side effects. In case of persistent side effects, the doctor should be informed:

Lower abdominal discomfort, fat spots on the back (anus), flatulence, loose fatty stools, urgent need to open the bowel, pain around the back (anus), headache, throat infection of the chest, symptoms such as flu or cold

Note: If you have bleeding from your anus, be sure to consult your doctor.

Consult your doctor if you have any other symptoms that you feel are due to medication.
