A bit about alli™ orlisat 60 mg capsules ... alli™ is the first and currently only FDA approved, over-the-counter weight loss product for adults ages 18 and over. I was just at a local retail store that sells this product, recently released on February 2007, and I could see it virtually flying off the shelves. It is a neatly-packaged "Start Pack" including 90 pills (1 month supply taken as indicated 3 times a day) and a full set of instructions including a meal plan based on a "...reduced-calorie low-fat diet". This fact is extremely important to know since this medication's mode of action is blocking the absorption of fat (reportedly blocks about 1/4 of the ingested fat) and if too much fat is ingested, one of the side effects is fecal soiling. The key is to limit daily fat intake of 15 grams. You also need to take a multivitamin every day. In addition, you should not continue to take this medication indefinitely. Resesarch studies have been conducted lasting 6-12 months only. Not much is known regarding its use beyond this time frame. One final important point is that it may affect certain medications that you may be currrently taking, making their levels higher or lower in your body, leading to potentially serious consequences. Therefore, consult your physician and have them follow with you. Be sure to read all of the fine print before using this and any weight loss medication. Whether or not you choose to use a medication to aid with weight loss, it is vital that you remember that longterm success will come only if you incorporate the basics -- a total lifestyle change involving healthy eating and exercise / activity habits.
