Hey I'm new to orlistat been taking it with meals for a few days, I've noticed my stomach after the capsule and after a meal is making really really load noises abit like lots of wind going through and I have had flatulance however I'm edge everytime just incase because of what I've read!! but I've only been passing normal bowel actions however I do normally suffer with constipation so I find it abit of a relief going 1-2 times a day, I wanted to know how soon after starting orlistat I would have a bad bowel action letting me know I've been naughty with my food or I'm wondering if itl suddenly kick in after taking days and I'm not prepared! And If it does start working almost straight away does this mean my current diet is ok? X sorry if there's too much info guys i apologise!
