Alli is a brand name for Orlistat 60mg available over the counter.
Orlistat works by acting as a lipase inhibitor. It reduces the amount of fat in your diet that your body absorbs through digestion. The treatment allows about a quarter of the fat eaten in meals to be passed out in stools. By reducing fat intake in this way, it makes losing weight easier. However, to achieve the best possible results, it is important to make lifestyle changes too. These may include eating more healthily, cutting down on alcohol consumption and doing more exercise.
Orlistat capsules are usually taken three times a day immediately before, during or shortly after meals that contain fat. The tablets must be taken within an hour of eating.
The side effects most commonly associated with Orlistat include abdominal discomfort, sweating, nausea, loss of appetite, wind accompanied by an oily discharge, a sudden need to open the bowels and oily or liquid stools. If you would like additional information about these potential symptoms, you can contact your doctor or speak to our experts.
