Q. Can you drink alcohol on Fatnil?

Though alcohol does not interfere with the working of Fatnil, it is recommended that you cut on or avoid alcohol. Alcohol contains calories which will add to your weight. Hence, for effective weight reduction it is best to avoid alcohol.

Q. How quickly does Fatnil work?

Fatnil starts working quickly, within 24-48 hours of taking it. You may even notice fat in your stools. However, it may take about a week or two to show effective weight reduction, which will vary from person to person.

Q. Is it important to follow an exercise program while taking Fatnil?

Yes, exercise may prove to be very helpful for the effective weight reduction and maintenance of reduced weight. An exercise program and low-calorie intake will help maintain your weight even after discontinuation of the medicine.

Q. How does Fatnil help with weight loss?

Fatnil belongs to a class of medicines known as lipase inhibitors. It targets the fat that you eat. It prevents about 25% of fat in your meals from being absorbed. This unabsorbed fat will get passed in stools and get removed from the body.

Q. How should I take Fatnil?

Take Fatnil three times a day and swallow the capsule whole with water. Take it just before, during, or up to one hour after meals. The meal should be well balanced and should include low calorie ingredients. Do not take Fatnil if you miss a meal or your meal does not contain fat, as it will not work in the absence of fat.

Q. How much weight can you lose in a week with Fatnil?

You should set a realistic goal of weight reduction. Aim to reduce 5-10% of your starting weight. This weight loss process should be gradual and at a steady pace. You should try to reduce 0.5 kg of weight per week.
