How does Orlistat work?
Orlistat’s main ingredient targets enzymes in your gut that break down fat. When you take the tablet with a meal, it blocks these enzymes and the absorption of fat in your intestines. This means about a third of the fat you eat isn’t broken down, and the undigested fat is passed out through your stools. This helps you take in fewer calories from fat, making it easier to lose weight.
You will see better results if Orlistat is taken when you follow a low-fat, low-calorie diet and exercise regularly.
How long does Orlistat take to work?
Orlistat capsules work by preventing the absorption of dietary fats. The weight loss medication starts to affect how you digest fat within one to two days, and you will feel the effects of Orlistat on your body and starting weight within a day or two. Those who take Orlistat should not expect to see any significant weight loss in the first few days of taking it.
Who can take Orlistat tablets?
Orlistat will usually only be recommended if you’ve made a significant effort to lose weight through diet, exercise or lifestyle changes.
Even then, orlistat is only prescribed if you have either:
- A body mass index (BMI) of 28 or more, and other weight-related conditions, such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes
- A BMI of 30 or more.
How to take Orlistat Tablets
The correct dose of Orlistat 120 mg is usually one tablet taken with each main meal that contains fat up to three times a day.
To take Orlistat, follow these steps:
- Take one tablet with each main meal that contains some fat. Don’t take more than three tablets a day.
- You can take the tablet during the meal or up to one hour after eating.
- If a meal has no fat or you skip it, skip the Orlistat dose for that meal.
- Keep track of your daily fat, protein, and carb intake. Spread it evenly across your meals.
- Stick to a low-calorie diet and exercise regularly for the best results.
- Orlistat can affect how your body absorbs some vitamins. You might need to take a vitamin supplement. If so, take it at bedtime or at least two hours before or after taking Orlistat.
How effective is Orlistat?
Orlistat has been shown to effectively lower body weight, BMI, cholesterol levels, and waist circumference. It can also lead to a modest decrease in blood pressure and improved blood sugar control in people with diabetes.

Alternatives to Orlistat
Clavitanol is a plant-based weight loss medication available over the counter in the UK. It targets carbs, sugars, and fats. Orlistat is a synthetic weight loss treatment focusing on blocking fat absorption and requires a prescription in the UK. Both have clinical backing for their effectiveness in weight loss but come with different side effects.
Orlistat vs. Wegovy
Wegovy is a weight loss injection medication, compared to Orlistat, which is taken in tablet form. Wegovy works by mimicking a hormone that controls appetite, making you feel fuller for longer. Orlistat, on the other hand, blocks the absorption of dietary fats in the intestines. Both medications require a prescription and have their own set of side effects. While Wegovy is often used for more severe cases of obesity, Orlistat is generally used for people who are overweight or obese but may not have as many related health issues.
Our pharmacists can provide advice during the online consultation process to determine the best weight loss medication for your needs and medical history.
Orlistat Weight Loss Tablets FAQs
Orlistat tablets primary use is for treatment to help you lose weight by reducing fat absorption.
Orlistat is usually out of your system within 48 to 72 hours after the last dose. However, the time can vary based on factors like your age, health, and how your liver and kidneys work.
In the UK, you typically need a prescription to buy Orlistat.
A lower-dose version of Orlistat, often sold as Alli, is available over the counter. However, the higher dose usually requires a prescription.
The best time to take Orlistat is with each meal containing fat. You can take it during the meal or up to one hour after eating. If a meal has little or no fat, you can skip the Orlistat dose for that meal.
If you haven’t lost 5% of your body weight after using Orlistat for 3 months, it’s probably not working for you. The drug starts impacting your fat digestion in 1 to 2 days, so if it’s not effective after 3 months, talk to your GP or pharmacist about stopping the treatment.
