Rosalina July 14, 2017, 09:54:45 AM #1 Answer An anorexiant is an appetite suppressant. No, orlistat is not an anorexiant. Orlistat does not reduce caloric intake by reducing appetite; it reduces fat absorption in the intestines, leading to decreased calories. Lexie July 14, 2017, 10:04:49 AM #2 Thanks for everything!
