Orlistat useful for long-term weight loss

This meta-analysis of 295 Europeans with a body mass index of 28 to 43 found that in patients who successfully lost weight during the initial 3 months of using orlistat, they continued to lose weight for an additional 21 months. Orlistat works for approximately 3/4ths of the people who go on the medication.
