Uni-Cal 120 mg Caps 30'S For Weight Loss
Uni-Cal contains Orlistat, which helps people lose weight with a low-calorie, low-fat diet and exercise.
Orlistat is in a class of medications called lipase inhibitors. It works by preventing fat from being absorbed in the intestines. This unabsorbed fat is then removed from the body in the stool.
Uni-Cal should be used under doctor supervision in overweight people and in with people who have weight-related medical problems. Uni-Cal also prevents gaining back the weight you have lost.
• Uni-Cal is used for weight loss.
• Uni-Cal reduces fat absorption.
How to use:
Take 1 capsule three times a day with each main meal containing fat or as the doctor prescribed.
The dose may be taken during the meal or within one hour after completion.
If a meal is missed or does not have fat, you may skip your dose.
• The most common side effect of Uni-Cal is changing in bowel movement (BM) habits.
This generally occurs during the first weeks of treatment; however, it may continue throughout the use of orlistat.

Warnings and cautions:
