  • Abstract

    Orlistat is an antiobesity drug, used for long-term treatment of weight loss in obese adults with a reduced calorie, low-fat diet, and exercise program. Recently, many studies are suggesting that more than the weight reduction, orlistat therapy confers with many other therapeutic benefits in diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, Polycystic Ovary syndrome, nonalcoholic fatty liver, and breast cancer. Simultaneously, there are studies that are reporting the toxicity such as nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, and gastrointestinal side effects. It is important to consider the toxicity profile of the drug while prescribing orlistat, particularly in geriatrics, renal and liver disease patients. Furthermore, studies should be conducted to find the long-term side effects and other benefits of orlistat therapy
