 5  Constipation caused by other meds Works on your gut, so the hypochondriacs complaining of headaches, that is 100% psychosomatic. As long as you do not eat more than the recommended fat, there are no side effects. If you do exceed the daily fat allowance, you may have oily stools and/or discharge. Even when it happened, I had no issues getting to the toilet in time. Perhaps if you eat a massive amount of fat or have poor control of your bowels, it may be an issue. I was prescribed this drug for constipation. I was moderately overweight (5 foot 8 inches tall and 160lbs) when starting this drug and lost 15lbs. which was a nice bonus. As it is a WEIGHT LOSS drug, I find it funny that fat people are whining about the side effects when they do not follow the diet. No wonder these people cannot lose weight, they clearly blame extraneous factors for their own failures. F 40 100 days

 4  To Lose 5 stone due to Fibromyalgia At first, felt drained and nauseous with a few headaches.I have Ibs that usually comes with severe cramps and constipation but these have seemed to settle down and I was starting going to the toilet once a day by the secobd week (which is amazing for me). I felt like it wasn't working so I tested it and yes, did go to the toilet more (up to three times 3 maximum in a day) but never had a 'oops' moment, or the infamous oily discharge, no extreme urgency either. I don't tend to eat much fat on a daily basis though. I usually have a fruit/vegetable smoothie for breakfast with grapefruit, homemade vegetable soup for lunch and a dinner consisting of atleast 70% vegetables and no red meat. I've taken out Binge/ overeating CBT books from the library to help cut down evening snacking on buscuits and such. I also exercise quit a bit, but struggle because I have Fi romyalgia that causes wide spread chronic pain. I try to do things such as, cycle to work, gym once a wee, home workouts and jogging when I can but I don't think it's helped much in terms of weight loss, it does keep me motivated to not eat crap after exercising though. I started at 14st11 and have gone down and up a lot but am now at 14st6 so results are appearing slowly. Hopefully it continues as i'm aiming to get to a goal weight of 10stone. I've been worrying a lot about tge whole 'must lose 5% in 1 month', which I thought harsh, when I realised just today it's actually 3 months! I would advise not to eat not to eat more than 15grams of fat in a meal otherwise you'll eventually get loose stools in the toilet. Have seen the fat in the toilet once after a binge of 1 box of malteasers, 2 creme eggs, a small bag of miniature creme eggs and healthy jacket potato and tuna dinner. Feel free to conact me for more information/questions :) F 24 2 weeks

 5  Weight loss I started these a week ago and have already lost 6ib, however xmas dsy was a nightmare due to me over eating I spent nearly the whole day on the loo. I'm sure my in laws thought I was making myself sick lol. Overall I'm doing well so spending the day on the loo was worth it. These will make you poo a lot if you over eat.

 5  Obesity I started taking Xenical in November, 2014 with the goal of losing 40 pounds. I have lost 35 to date. I have had the usual effects of loose and frequent stools and elimination of oil usually about 48 hours after a high fat meal. Side effects are body doesn't efficiently absorb fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K I have had no diarrhea or other discomfort with this medication. I take extra fibre every day (eg. sprinkle some on my cereal in morning) and before bed I take a multi vitamin and extra vitamin D to give my body the vitamins it may not be absorbing during the couple of hours the drug is effective.

 5  Fat blocker If you cook/make your own food, very little oil in pooh. But if you eat process food - lots of oil. Thai, Indian, Chinese also lots of oil !! It is amazing how much oil is in some foods. Butter on toast - no oil ? I only take one at dinner for a fat blocker. Also when I go out to restaurants. Also on holiday I take 3 a day. basically any time I eat out. I think these are the best pills to keep your weight down. M 46 2 years

 5  Obesity One incident of dark orange oil in my stool but that was because I had 2 slices of pizza that had 12g of fat EACH. So far this has been really good for me. I haven't actually weighed myself yet but I certainly feel smaller. A lot of people on here are saying that they're experiencing really bad side effects, but then they say they're eating about 12g of fat with every meal. It's no surprise if you're eating that much! The most I'll have in one meal is 7g. The pills work wonderfully but only if you cut down enough. F 18 6 days

 4  To help kick start weight loss Yes oily stools but I am eating well, trial and error with some foods, I guess that's what you need to do, smaller portion sizes and I try to do a bigger lunch smaller dinner and lots of protein! I have lost weight, I can feel it, but not getting on the scales, going for a walk most days for half hour and have lost some weight! Happy with the xenical, but you do just need to eat healthy ie lots of salad vegetables & protein with an occasional treat! It does work but you can't keep eating as you have been and think the pill alone will help you get the kilos off! F 38 10 days

XENICAL  (ORLISTAT):  This medication is used with a doctor-approved exercise, behavior change, and reduced-calorie diet program to help you lose weight. It is used by certain overweight people, such as those who are obese or have weight-related medical problems. Taking orlistat can also help keep you from gaining back weight you have lost. Losing weight and keeping it off can lessen the many health risks that come with obesity, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and a shorter life. Dietary fats need to be broken down into smaller pieces before the body can absorb them. Orlistat works by blocking the enzyme that breaks down fats in your diet. This undigested fat then passes out of your body in your bowel movement. Orlistat does not block the absorption of calories from sugar and other non-fat foods, so you still need to restrict your total intake of calories.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
