Safe and Effective Weight Loss

We offer Orlistat at Roller Weight Loss in Tulsa, Fort Smith & Fayetteville. It is an oral medication that helps people lose weight by preventing fat absorption in the body. At Roller Weight Loss & Advanced Surgery, we understand how challenging weight loss can be, and we're here to support you every step of the way. This includes providing you with the latest weight loss options, such as Orlistat.

What Is Orlistat?

Orlistat works by blocking the action of lipase, an enzyme in the digestive system that breaks down fat into smaller molecules that can be absorbed into the bloodstream. It does not affect the absorption of carbohydrates or protein, nor does it affect the absorption of essential vitamins and minerals.

When you take Orlistat, it attaches to lipase and prevents it from breaking down some of the fat you eat. Instead, the fat passes through your digestive system and is eliminated in your stool. This means you absorb fewer calories from the fat you eat, which can help you lose weight.

The treatment is most effective with a healthy diet and regular exercise; studies have shown that people who take Orlistat and follow a reduced-calorie diet lose more weight than those who only follow a reduced-calorie diet.

Orlistat Benefits

One of the main benefits of Orlistat is that it can help you lose weight and keep it off. In addition, people who take Orlistat are more likely to maintain their weight loss over time.

Some of its many other benefits include the following:

  • Orlistat has been shown to improve lipid profiles, including reducing LDL cholesterol and increasing HDL cholesterol
  • Losing weight with Orlistat can reduce your risk of developing health problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease
  • It has also been shown to improve insulin resistance and glucose tolerance in patients with type 2 diabetes
  • It’s easy to use and convenient, coming in a capsule form that you take with each meal that contains fat
  • You don't need to worry about taking it at specific times of the day or following a complicated dosing schedule

Am I a Good Candidate For Orlistat?

Before starting Orlistat in Tulsa, Fort Smith & Fayetteville, you’ll consult with one of our Roller Weight Loss providers. We will evaluate your medical history, current medications, and overall health during this consultation. Some other factors that may make you a good candidate for Orlistat include the following:

  • You have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise but have been unsuccessful
  • You have a BMI of 30 or higher
  • You have a BMI of 27 or higher and at least one weight-related condition
  • You are committed to making lifestyle changes to support weight loss

Usage and Dosage

The recommended dosage for Orlistat is 120 mg taken orally three times a day with meals or within one hour of a meal. If a meal is missed or does not contain fat, the dosage of Orlistat should be skipped. It is important to note that the dose should not exceed 360 mg daily.

Here are some other usage and dosage considerations:

  • Orlistat is intended to be used with a low-fat, reduced-calorie diet. You should consume no more than 30% of your daily calories from fat while taking Orlistat. A healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is recommended.
  • It is also vital to incorporate regular physical activity into your routine while taking Orlistat. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
  • If you miss a dose of Orlistat, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
  • It may take several weeks of consistent use to see noticeable weight loss results with Orlistat. It is essential to continue taking the medication as directed and to make lifestyle changes to support your weight loss goals.
