Orlistat Powder Dosage

Orlistat comes in the form of turquoise, hard-gelatin capsules that contain pellets of powder and weighs 120-mg. The recommended daily dosage is three capsules a day. You shouldn’t take all three pills at a go, but instead take each tablet with the main meal that contains fat, i.e., one for breakfast, one for lunch, and one for supper.

You can take each pill with a meal or up to one hour after a meal. In case a meal is often missed, or if your meal does not contain fat, the Orlistat dose can be omitted.  Doses above the recommended daily dosage have not been found to provide any additional benefit.

Orlistat is most effective when combined with other weight loss strategies such as sticking to a nutritionally balanced, minimized-calorie diet and regular exercises. You are advised to take the weight loss pill with a meal that contains about 30 percent calories from fat. The effects of the drug are seen as soon as 24-48 hours after taking a dose.

Orlistat has been found to be effective in minimizing the absorption of certain fat-soluble vitamins and beta-carotene. As such, people who take the pill are advised to take it together with a multi-vitamin that contains fat-soluble vitamins to ensure sufficient nutrition.  It’s recommended that the vitamin supplement be taken at least two hours before or after taking Orlistat.
