Orlistat is available for the long-term treatment of obesity (up to 4 years) and is provided in 120 mg capsules. The recommended dose of Orlistat is 120 mg three times daily during or up to 1 hour after each main meal containing fat.
The dose can be omitted if the meal is missed or contains no fat.
If you take multivitamins, always inform your healthcare professional for advice. Orlistat can reduce the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin A, D, E and K. It may be necessary to take your multivitamins at bedtime.
Orlistat should be taken exactly as instructed by your doctor or pharmacist.
