Brief Answer:
you can take but start very slowly

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mr. XXXXXXX

There is not adverse interaction of orlistat with your diabetes drugs, but the thing is that orlistat hampers the absorption of fat from the intestine. And being a diabetic you must be already on a restricted carbohydrate diet and your diabetic drugs hampers the absorption of carbohydrates from the intestine.

Now, as the principal energy source for our body are carbohydrates and fats, so taking the two together will cause weakness and will increase the possibility of you going into hypogylcaemia.

So you need to start orlistat at a very low dose and then gradually increase it as you can tolerate it. Start with half tablet at lunch time, then make half at dinner too, then full tablet at lunch and half at dinner and finally full at both lunch and dinner. Then you may take it at breakfast also. But be slow in this ascent. And always keep a small chocolate or any glucose biscuit in your pocket, as a precaution for hypoglycemia.

This if you can achieve will greatly benefit you, not only in reducing your weight, but even may lead to reduction in the dose of your diabetic drugs.

Dr. Deepika Patil
