Drug Orlistat (Xenical) made by Hoffmann-La Roche does not work as other appetite suppressants do. Orlistat has no negative impact on the function of the brain or heart, and therefore does not cause addiction and heart valve defects.

Orlistat may cause bad reactions, especially if misused. Unpleasant side effects of Orlistat are bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea and other disorders of the digestive system.
Drug Orlistat effectively prevents absorption of fats, has low risk of side effects, as well as can be used for a long time. These characteristics explain breakout of Orlistat.
Orlistat has quickly become a leader of online sales. Federal regulators stated that they were concerned about this trend, but were not sure what to do with it. After Orlistat 60mg pills were approved for sale without prescription, concerns about online sales have disappeared.
