The basis of the treatment of obesity is changing eating pattern, combined with increased physical activity. However, not all patients can change their eating habits and lifestyle. This dictates a necessity to include pharmacotherapy in complex treatment of obesity. Currently, the drug of choice for the treatment of patients with complicated obesity is orlistat – peripheral drug, which exert its therapeutic effect within the gastrointestinal tract and has no systemic actions.
