15320691164_e08f939c46_oWeight loss is something that most people come into contact with nowadays in the Caribbean. Whether you need to lose a lot of weight or just a few pounds to fit into that outfit, weight loss is prominent in today’s society. Many have tried a ton of stuff, but still long for the results they want.

Now there is this drug, Orlistat from Australia, that should help persons out in terms of weight. In more detail, Orlistat also known as Tetrahydrolipstatin works by functioning as a lipase inhibitor meaning the drug blocks the chemical enzymes produced by the pancreas when fatty foods are ingested. The unused materials from the foods are passed through the digestive tract and out through your stool. The effects result in a decrease in the number of calories your body gets.

Trials and tests done on this drug have shown commendable results, with participants of the medication praising the effects that were experienced. For persons who have taken Orlistat, the consensus says that the weight you lose stays off with diet and exercise. Yet with all these great reviews, two questions have to be answered. What are the side effects and could there be long term effects involved?

15773469529_436cffca19_hWhile researching, it was found that there were a number of side effects that comes with ingesting this medicine. The drawbacks include having oily or fatty stools, oily spotting in your undergarments, orange or brown colored oil coming out of your stool, gas and an oily discharge. In addition, you may encounter loose stools, or an immediate need to go to the bathroom. There would be an inability to control your bowel movements and an increase in the number of times you feel the urge to go will happen. Also, some stomach pains will be felt, followed by nausea, and rectal pain. But these things are actually normal if you experience them, and just proves that the medicine is working.

Do not worry, the side effects are temporary and may decrease as time goes by but judging from the investigation conducted, it is said that side effects of the drugs have consciously been underreported.
