Orlistat Overview

Orlistat is a drug designed to treat obesity. It is marketed as a prescription drug under the trade name Xenical by Roche in most countries, and is sold over-the-counter as Alli[2] by GlaxoSmithKline in the United Kingdom and the United States.[3] Its primary function is preventing the absorption of fats from the human diet by acting as a lipase inhibitor, thereby reducing caloric intake.

My Blood Pressure along with thyronorm 25 mg

I have been taking thyronorm 25 mg for the past 3 years and now my BP is 160 -100 most of the time. I wake up in the morning with headaches and pain in my left arm. My Dr advised me taking orlistat 120 for weight management and xtem and olmator 20. I am not sure if i should start these medications, though it is two weeks now and i am taking mukta vati and medhavati. ## I am 78 years old, taking Thyrox 25 for the past one year due to high BP. Prior to this was taking Losaran 50 twice daily, but since I started thyroid medicine my BP has gone down. Sometimes it comes down to as low as 102/54. I also take 4 tablets of Tidomet plus 125. What is the reason why my BP has been going down?

Hr Drugs 325 Osp H

Has anyone established whether this batch of Orlistat is fake? I have my suspicions but as I've only been taking them for 2 days, I'm still not sure. ## An update on my original post. I ordered Xenical (Orlistat) from canada-pharmacy-24h.com and I received my order within two week. A generic drug called Co-Orly 120 was sent out to me direct from an Indian company called Combitic Global. I am very familiar with Orlistat and I know what to expect when I take it and without going into details, I realised within a few days that there was something odd about these tablets and I became pretty convinced that they didn't contain Orlistat. I also checked this site and read that others were concerned about these tablets, all had the same batch number. I then sent Canada Pharmacy a pol...

Tablet For Getting Periods

Sir i had orlistat for 6 days from 16-22 feb den i should get my periods on 4 march bt it didnt came den i took primulute n from 10-13 and now its 17 and still no periods plz help ## HI, Asma! How are you? Orlistat will not do anything to help you get your period. Orlistat is a weight loss medication that blocks the absorption of fats in your body. Primolut N is a synthetic progesterone hormone, it contains Norethisterone 4 days of it may not have been enough to help. Is there a chance that you're pregnant? ## Hi (am 19yrs).. i am hvng irregular periods.. last timi hd it fo abt 2.5mnts .. n ths tim it been abt 2mnts n 10 days n i still din hv my periods.. n i am really scared bcoz i hd intercourse abt 25 days back.. i did d test at home n d result ws negetive.. bt still i am realy w...

Side Effect Weight Loss

I am taking Redotex in the morning and orlistat twice a day, one after lunch and one after dinner, It's is my first day, I took them for a month about 4 years ago and los 45lbs, mind you, I was eating extremely healthy and was working out 3 hours a day, jog for one hour in the am and at night would do at the time turbo jam and as soon as I was done with that I'd go for another hour jog. My head would hurt every morning, it was more of a pain in the back of my lower head, but I stuck it out and if ever I felt dizzy I would eat an orange and I would feel better 15 minutes after. The combination is quite dangerous but if you are limiting your caffeine intake and are following your doctors orders you should be fine.. Consult your doctors, well if you live close by the border, becaus...

Zerofat-A dosage

Hello, My weight is 90 & height 5'5 want to know the proper disage to take of ZEROFAT-A sachet, how to use it & how many months need to take. ## @PIU, From what I could gather, the active ingredient in Zerofat-A is Orlistat. According to the manufacturer, the typical adult dosage of Orlistat is 120mg taken orally 3 times daily. Apparently you're supposed to take each dose with every meal you have that contains fat. However the manufacturer goes on to note that the dose may also be taken within about an hour of finishing your meal(s). As to how long you should take it, I think that is best determined by you and your doctor, depending on your goals an expectations. I would also encourage you to confirm dosing protocols as well, since the instructions mentioned above are on...

redustat orlistat

xenical ## ## Has anybody else had "oily" discharge during a bowel movement? i'm thinking that it's the fat being taken out of the food i eat. I see it listed as a possible side effect but it's really a bit more than I was expecting. Plus I'm not eating too much fat in my opinion. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Also, what is the best brand name of this?? I remember back in the day it was prescription only but now there is over the counter versions too.
