Orlicure capsules are manufactured by Fortune Health Care. The active component of Orlicure is Orlistat (tetrahydrolipstatin) – peripherally acting anti-obesity agent also called gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor. Orlicure 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).
Orlicure is recommended to be taken following a regular exercise program like walking and swimming and well-balanced nutritional diet. This will aid in losing weight.
MOA (mechanism of action):
Orlistat’s primary function is to prevent the absorption of fats from the daily diet, thereby reducing calorie intake. Orlistat works by suppressing pancreatic lipase, an enzyme that breaks down triglycerides in the intestine. When lipase activity is inhibited, triglycerides from the diet are not absorbed, and instead are removed with the stools unchanged.
Orlicure capsule should be swallowed with water.
Take one capsule 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) while taking Orlicure.
The dose of Orlicure should be omitted if a meal is missed or does not contain fat.
Treatment with Orlicure 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.
Orlicure is approved to be taken along with nutritionally balanced, low-calorie diet and physical activity.
Orlicure can be used by people with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or high cholesterol.
Orlicure is intended for use only in adults and can be dangerous for children.
Do not stop taking Orlicure suddenly.
