- Up to 40 day supply (120 capsules)
Alli is the reduced-strength version (60 milligrams vs. 120 milligrams) of orlistat (Xenical), a drug to treat obesity. It's approved for over-the-counter sale to overweight adults 18 years and older. Alli is meant to be used in conjunction with a low-calorie, low-fat diet and regular exercise.What are the concerns with Alli?
In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began a safety review of orlistat because of rare reports of serious liver injury in people using it. The FDA found no cause-and-effect relationship between orlistat and the risk of liver injury. However, Alli and Xenical labels now advise people to be alert to signs and symptoms that could indicate liver injury, such as itching, loss of appetite, yellow eyes or skin, light-colored stool, or brown urine.How does Alli work?
Alli promotes weight loss by decreasing absorption of fat by the intestines, which reduces the number of calories you absorb.
Lipase, an enzyme found in the digestive tract, helps break down dietary fat into smaller components, so it can be used or stored for energy. Alli works by disabling lipase, which prevents the enzyme from breaking down the fat while it's in your digestive tract. The undigested fat continues through the intestines and is eliminated through bowel movements.
Alli is taken with fat-containing meals, up to three times a day. Because of how Alli works, it's recommended that you eat no more than 15 grams of fat with each meal. Eating greater amounts of fat can cause unwanted effects, such as urgent bowel movements, diarrhea and gas with oily spotting.
