Active Ingredient: Orlistat
Do not chew the capsule - swallow whole with a glass of water. Your daily intake of fat, carbohydrate and protein should be distributed over three meals. The patient was prescribed orlistat 120 mg bid and noted immediate satisfactory bowel management.
Side-effects experienced included frequent gas and occasional spotting, stomach distress, fecal incontinence, and diarrhea.
Case 2 A 39-year-old white obese male BMI 31. Concurrent constipation with the accompanying perception of incomplete evacuation was unsuccessfully treated with Dulcolax, Senokot, Metamucil, Ex-Lax Stool Softener, and Phillips Liquid Gel.
Orlistat 120 mg bid was prescribed primarily to treat his constipation.
Concurrent weight loss was encouraged. No weight loss occurred but a successful bowel regimen developed. The patient experienced side-effects including spotting, stomach distress, diarrhea, and gas. Orlistat 120 mg bid was prescribed resulting in successful bowel management.
She experienced associated orlistat side-effects including occasional spotting and stomach distress. Discussion Many people have intractable pain that necessitates the use of opioids to help manage the symptoms.
Urinary calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc were determined by flame atomic absorption spectroscopy Analytical Methods for Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy 1982; Perkin-Elmer Corporation, Norwalk, CT.
Urinary phosphate was determined by UV-photometry.
Serum sodium and potassium were analyzed with ion-selective electrodes. Urinary sodium and potassium were analyzed with flame photometry.
Serum intact osteocalcin was measured with a luminescence specific assay Heaning, Berlin, Germany. Urinary hydroxyproline was determined by a photometric method 13.
Deoxypyridinoline free and total and free pyridinoline was measured with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay Metra Biosystems. Fecal fat was determined 14. A 24-h sample of meals deboned was collected for each menu.
Each sample was weighed and homogenized using automated homogenization equipment. Meal calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc concentrations was measured with flame atomic absorption spectroscopy 12.
Meal copper was measured with electrothermal atomic absorption spectroscopy. Meal phosphate was analyzed with UV-photometry.
The meal total fat content was weighed after extraction, and the meal total energy was calculated based on dry matter, fat and ashes.
The carbohydrates were determined by the difference Nordic Committee on Food Analysis, no.
The accuracy and precision of measurements for minerals and biochemical anylates were determined. Serum potassium: 5. All serological parameters were normal. Urinary oxalate levels were not taken.
