Obelit® capsules are manufactured by Intas Pharma Ltd.
Obelit® is recommended to control obesity in patients with the BMI greater or equal to 30 kg/m² (or with BMI greater or equal to 28 kg/m² with associated risk factors).
Orlistat is an active chemical compound of the medication. It is a gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor that acts by blocking the absorption of fats and removing them from the body with the stools.
Normally, Obelit® is used along with low-calorie diet, exercise, weight management program to reduce and control obesity in people who are vulnerable to high cholesterol, triglycerides or high blood pressure.
Taking Obelit® also keeps patients from gaining weight back after prior weight loss.
Take one pill of Obelit® orally 3 times a day during the main meal or up to 1 hour after the meal.
The diet of the patient should include three main meals, containing the daily dose of fat, carbohydrate, and protein.
The daily intake of fat should be no more than 30% of your total daily caloric intake (e.g., eating 1200 calories per day, no more than 360 of those calories should be in the form of fat).
The dose of Obelit® should be omitted if a meal is missed or does not contain fat.
Treatment with Obelit® should not continue for more than 6 months and should be stopped after 12 weeks if patient has been unable to lose at least 5 % of the body weight.
If you lose enough weight for your BMI to fall below 28 kg/m², Obelit® can no longer be supplied.
