About ORLIMAX 120MG CAPSULE

ORLIMAX 120MG CAPSULE belongs to the class of medication called anti-obesity drugs used to treat obesity and help in weight loss. ORLIMAX 120MG 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.

ORLIMAX 120MG CAPSULE contains Orlistat that works in the small intestine and stomach and prevents the action of enzymes that breakdown fat which is absorbed by the body. ORLIMAX 120MG 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, ORLIMAX 120MG CAPSULE helps in weight loss.

Take ORLIMAX 120MG CAPSULE as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take ORLIMAX 120MG 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), runny or liquid stools. Most of these side effects of ORLIMAX 120MG CAPSULE do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist, please consult your doctor.
