Orlistat works by preventing some of the fat from the food you eat from being absorbed. It may avoid gaining weight but does not always cause you to lose weight.

Orlistat is usually advised if you have started to make progress in losing weight through lifestyle changes such as dietary changes and exercise

Treatment beyond 3 months is only recommended if you have lost 5% of your body weight. If you haven’t we would not advise orlistat and recommend discussing this with your GP.
