Do Alli diet pills really work?

What Is Alli?

Alli is a reduced dose of the Xenical prescription diet pill made with the ingredient Orlistat.  While Xenical comes with 120 mg of the active ingredient, Orlistat per diet pill, Alli has half as much or 60mg per diet pill. Thus, Alli is a lower, half the dose and half the strength of the prescription version.

For dieters who are more or less on the fringe of the over weight category but may not qualify for a prescription diet pill may consider using Alli.  Alli is sold without a prescription over the counter and online

Alli Background

At first glance Alli has an awful lot of positives including its association with Xenical being a major plus. The fact that Alli is the only OTC diet pill to granted FDA (Food And Drugs Administration) approval is another.  However, recent reports of liver damage associated with Alli give some cause for concern.

What are Alli diet pills side effects?

While one of the more common complaints when it comes to using Alli is the frequency and timing of bowel movements and related staining issues, recent report suggest more ominous side effects.  Some users have gone so far to suggest that dieters should bring a change of clothing for long journeys due to bowel related leakage and staining problems.  Alli’s diet pill leaves undigested fat as an oily orange liquid that will leave the body sooner or later with the build up of gas and pressure in the bowel.

While Alli has been shown to work in blocking fat absorbtion, its beneficial effects are less than it prescription version Xenical.  However recent reports linking Alli and Xenical to liver damage is most troubling.  Learn more in the post, FDA probing Alli liver damage.
