It's a good drug, but very much abused. Mercury price is around P40++ a pill (if you're lucky enough to find stocks), while black market price could go as high up as P65 a pill. I called up Roche, the local distributor, because one of our patients needed Orlistat, but unfortunately, high-ranking government officials have already reserved the Roche stocks to give to their friends, so those who should have access to it are on the losing end. You should get a doctor's go-signal before starting yourself on this. Abuse of this pill can cause a lot of side effects.
