First time on orlistat .. Dont know what to expect .. So far not getting any side effect . Can anyone tell me if you have to experience something to see if the pills are working .. i m only going to weight myself at the Dr once on month .. My diet is not too rich in fat so hopefully it will spare me from any unpleasant accidents . my starting weight is 85 kg .. I will try to post once a week and relate any side effects if any .. i will also give updates on weight loss too .. hopefully ..

Hi, I was prescribed Orlistat a couple of days ago and will be starting them on Monday as I have V Festival on Saturday and don't fancy any side effects whilst there lol

Can i ask how you're finding it?

hiya Georgieporgie1.

so far so good.. nearly no side effects .. just really weird belly grumble .. i still havent weigh myself waiting until weight in at dr .. looks like i lost some weight 😊 .. if you going to eat a lot of chips , and other festival food . i think it will be wiser to start on monday and enjoy your weekend .. let me know how you get on when you start .. good luck x

Oh good, the side effects have scared me slightly haha

But I guess if my diet is okay then they won't be too bad.

Exactly, to be fair I wasn't even thinking about the food at the festival I was thinking more about the possible side effects and having to queue at a porter loo and having an 'accident' haha

I will let you know how I get on, would be good to have someone to chat too. When do you go for your weigh in?x
