About Orlean 120 Capsule

Orlean 120 Capsule is used to treat obesity and help in weight loss. Orlean 120 Capsule is to be used along with a low-calorie diet and regular physical exercise. Obesity is a common condition associated with excessive body fat, which in turn increases the risk of other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, certain cancers, and heart disease. Intake of more calories than you burn by exercise or daily activities results in obesity.

Orlean 120 Capsule contains Orlistat, which works in the small intestine and stomach and prevents the action of enzymes that break down fat, which is absorbed by the body. Orlean 120 Capsule decreases the absorption of fat from the food you eat. Thus, fat passes through the gut and is excreted in the faeces, which makes the body unable to use fat as a source of energy or convert it into fat tissue. Thereby, Orlean 120 Capsule helps in weight loss.

Take Orlean 120 Capsule as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Orlean 120 Capsule for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition. Some people may experience soft stools, sudden bowel motions, flatulence (gas) with or without oily spotting, oily or fatty stools, stomach pain, stool incontinence (involuntary leakage of stools), and runny or liquid stools. Most of these side effects of Orlean 120 Capsule do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Orlean 120 Capsule or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Avoid taking Orlean 120 Capsule if you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy, as it may cause fetal harm. It is not known whether Orlean 120 Capsule is excreted in human milk. Therefore, please consult a doctor if you are a breastfeeding woman. Orlean 120 Capsule is not recommended for children below 18 years of age, as the safety and effectiveness were not established.
