have been taking mediciation for about 6 weeks and have lost 10 lbs. with 40 more pounds to go. Oily stools are easy to elimiante if you eliminate consuming too much fatty foods - it look me about 2 weeks to figure out the level I needed to avoid problems such as leaking. I am extremely hopefu this drug continues to work for me.
