Orlos can be used for weight loss alongside reduced calorie, lower-fat meals in overweight (BMI 28 or above) adults aged 18 years or over, says Crescent Pharma. The capsules, containing orlistat 60mg, stop about a quarter of the fat in meals being absorbed, says the company. One capsule should be taken whole with water, three times a day, with each main meal containing fat. The company advises that a multivitamin containing vitamins A, D, E and K should be taken once a day at bedtime and that Orlos should not be taken for more than six months.
