Any medicine will have side effects, the same as orlistat-based meds, but its side effects are very mild. Primary side effects include oily, loose stools, excessive flatulence, fecal incontinence, anal leakage (a.k.a. oily spots in your undies), and frequent or urgent bowel movements, especially if you’ve eaten high-fat or oily foods, according to the FDA. Other potential side effects include severe liver injury. People with chronic malabsorption syndrom, cholestasis, known hypersensitivity to Orlistat or to any component of this product neither can’t take orlistat-based med.
Some of these gastrointestinal side effects can be limited by avoiding high-fat diets and sticking to the recommended intake of no more than 30 percent fat. Orlistat should be avoided in people with intestinal issues, especially those who are prone to malabsorption of fats due to intestinal surgeries, diseases affecting the pancreas, etc. Orlistat may decrease the absorption of fat soluble vitamins, like vitamin A, D, E and K. People taking orlistat should be monitored for Vitamin D deficiency.
Because orlistat is prescription, so please don’t share your med to any other people. The user age should be and over 18 years old.
