Obesity drug failing patients due to lack of education about side-effects

A new study, published today in the Journal of Health Psychology, found that patients who gained weight 18 months after taking Orlistat attributed their weight-loss failure either to the side effects which have prevented them from sticking to the medication or felt that the medication simply had not worked.

The team from the University of Surrey also found that participants described a series of barriers to weight loss including psychological and physical health issues, relationships and the make-up of their bodies. They also described a number of alternative methods of weight loss that had also failed, and the failure of Orlistat was included within this idea of permanent and ongoing failure.

Orlistat is currently the only prescribed drug for obesity and functions by reducing the amount of fat absorbed from food eaten.

“Our results have significant implications for GPs and how they should communicate with the patients about this drug,” said lead author Dr Amelia Hollywood from the University of Surrey.

“GPs can improve patient support while taking Orlistat. At present, the so called “side effects” of Orlistat are seen as unpleasant and intrusive. If health professionals can highlight that such “side effects” are actually the consequences of eating high-fat foods while taking the drug, it could help ensure a change in diets.

“In addition, by alerting patients to these consequences and emphasising the need for dietary change, patients may be in a better position to make an informed judgement as to whether they wish to be prescribed this medication. GPs may likewise be able to make a more informed decision as to whether the medication should be prescribed, which could have cost implications for the NHS by reducing the waste of medications.”

    Great teaser for the book *Spark*! I knew exercise made me think and feel
    better but I think this will help cement it into my daily life even more
    than it already is.

    Right after watching this I just did 100 jumping jacks and sprinted in
    place for 1 minute, my heart is still beating!

    Thanks +Willy Karam for the lead, I am going to grab Spark on Audible for
    my morning bus rides!

    This video is now about 3 years old and still there are virtually no
    schools, that I know of, doing this stuff. What’s wrong with us? Seems
    simple.

    Well, I have been researching this topic for sometime. I have been changing
    my lifestyle gradually. I dont think I can go back to my old lifestyle. I
    never imagined exercise could have so much impact on my mind. Its almost
    like I am popping pills.

    Right after a meal is not a good idea, it would cause to vomit, so not a good idea, before you go to sleep, it might be good, you should talk to your physician, they would give you good advice whether its health or not, in my opinion, 1 1/2 before sleep seems good, and it will make you fall asleep faster.

    Depends on the exercise. A light walk after dinner would be fine, but you should wait 30 to 60 minutes before doing any intense exercises.

    As for before bed, it could interfere with your sleep. If it does, put more time between your exercise and bed time.

    You should wait until your food is fully digested before exercising to avoid cramping. You should also avoid exercising before bedtime. It will speed up your heart rate and adrenaline levels and make it impossible to relax and get to sleep. The best time to exercise is after you get up in the morning to get your blood pumping. I know, I hate mornings too, but you feel much better through out the day!! Make sure you eat a good breakfast too!

    Light exercise like walking after meal and also before going to bed, some meditation or Yoga.

    All the hard exercises should be performed with a light meal.

    You can pretty much exercise whenever you like, but I know for a fact that its not a good idea to swim right after a meal as you more likely to get cramps. Also from my exprerience, exercising after eating makes people nausious.
