I've recently been prescribed Orlistat and I just wanted to know... Apart from the obvious diet and exercising, is there anything else I can do to make these work best? I don't eat fatty foods so will they even work on me?
Orlistat blocks some of the fat that you eat, keeping it from being absorbed by your body. If you eat no fat it will be of very little benefit.
You are on the right track though. A good diet along with regular exercise and taking Orlistat is excellent! There's not much more you can do. All the best.
