What are Orlos (Orlistat) Weight Loss Capsules?

Online Doctor & NHS Prescriptions

Orlos is an anti-obesity medication. It works by preventing roughly one-third of the fat in your food from being absorbed in your digestive tract. Orlos binds to digestive enzymes (lipases) and prevents them from breaking down some of the fat you’ve consumed during your meal. Your body eliminates the undigested fat since it can’t be stored. Orlos is used to treat obesity when used in conjunction with a low-calorie diet.


How to take Orlos (Orlistat) Weight Loss Capsules?

Choose your start date


Plan ahead of time when you’ll begin taking the pills. Begin your low-calorie, low-fat diet before starting the capsules, and give your body a few days to acclimate to your new eating habits. Keep a food journal to keep track of what you consume. Food diaries work because they make you aware of what you’re eating, how much you’re consuming, and provide a foundation for making changes.


Decide on your weight loss goal


Consider how much weight you want to lose and then create a goal for yourself. A reasonable target is to shed between 5% and 10% of your starting weight. Week to week, the amount of weight you lose may fluctuate. You should try to shed roughly 0.5 kg (1 lb) per week in a moderate, steady manner.


Set your calorie and fat targets


Set two daily goals, one for calories and one for fat, to assist you to attain your weight-loss objective.


Adults 18 and over:


Three times a day, take one capsule.

Take Orlos 30 minutes before, during, or one hour after a meal. This normally entails taking one capsule at each meal, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Make sure all three of your main meals are well-balanced, low-calorie, and low-fat.

Do not take a capsule if you miss a meal or if your meal is low in fat. Orlos do not work unless the meal has some fat.

With water, swallow the capsule whole.

Take no more than 3 capsules each day.


I’m not sure how long I should take Orlos.

Orlos should only be used for six months at a time.

If you haven’t lost weight after 12 weeks of Orlos, consult your doctor or pharmacist. It’s possible that you’ll have to quit taking Orlos.

It’s not enough to eat differently for a brief period of time before reverting to your old habits to lose weight. People who lose weight and keep it off adopt lifestyle adjustments, such as changing their eating habits and increasing their physical activity.
