    I’ve been taking this product for two years now. It was prescribed by my doctor after I stopped smoking and gained quite a bit of weight. I lost 60 pounds but also dieted vigorously and exercised regularly at the gym on the treadmill for 35 minutes. Oily discharge sometimes? you bet, but only when I ate meals with a high fat content. Couple bits of advice: if you feel like you need to fart, don’t. You can’t be sure of what will come out. Restrain yourself until you get to a toilet, just in case. Also, not only fried chicken and fried food have fat. Any kind of red meat has fat content. Rule of thumb for me is if calories from fat are high, I take a pill with the meal. This product is a lifesaver but it only works with diet and exercise.

    I started taking Alli about two months ago to augment my diet and exercise program. I’m active, and with a BMI of 26, I just wanted to lose about 20 lbs that wasn’t coming off with my fairly intense cardio routine and low-fat diet. I would take Alli as directed with meals containing some fat but rarely more than the suggested amount of fat. And I did experience the treatment effects with meals within the suggested fat allotment: frequent, oily stools, random oily discharge (very gross), and stomach pain about 45 minutes after eating. However, they weren’t severe enough to make me stop taking the med. Over time, I didn’t lose an ounce but kept taking the pill as directed, hoping that it would kick in over time. It didn’t. And then I had a higher fat meal after taking one Alli pill. I know that the`treatment effects’ are supposed to act like aversion therapy, but this was ridiculous. I ended up in the ER with crippling, stabbing stomach pain and dry-heaving. I had such a bad reaction that stomach pumping was treatment of choice. The ER doc suggested I throw the pills out as soon as I got home.

    After recovering from the ER ordeal and promptly pitching the bottle of Alli (the aversion therapy didn’t work to GlaxoSmithKline’s advantage this time), I did a little bit of research and found that I was not the only one with adverse reactions requiring medical care. This med has been linked to pancreatitis, gall stones, and possibly colon cancer (research was kind of spotty on this). Will everyone react this way to the drug? Of course not. Every med has side effects and not everyone can tolerate certain drugs. However, I hope that people will consider the risks and weigh the benefits before spending quite a bit of money on something that may not work.

    Overall, I ended up with nasty side effects, a considerable ER bill, and no weight loss. And for those it does work for, you may become dependent on the drug for continued weight loss or even weight maintenance (this is from the actual website)- quite a price to pay to lose 2 to 3 more pounds more than you would have with diet and exercise alone. If Alli works for you, awesome- more power to you. But before you buy, please read the fine print- the pill may cost you a lot more than you bargained for.

    It makes me sad that all these people are attributing their weight loss to a drug when they’re really the ones doing all the work. If you look at the science behind this, the drug only blocks about 100 calories if you’re adhering to the required diet (which is necessary). It’s sticking to the diet that’s yielding all these results, and all these people are doing that all by themselves. Perhaps the threat of having gastric distress adds additional motivation to stay on the diet, but any one of them could have done that without this pill.

    The drug doesn’t even claim to increase your metabolism, or prevent storage. All it does is block 25% of the 45 grams of fat that you’re allowed each day. That is literally 101.25 calories, about as much as you’ll get from a single slice of cheese. That in itself can’t double the weight loss results. The people using Alli are doing all the work and giving the pill all the credit.

  4. I read an article that links Alli to

    pre-cancerous lesions in the colons of mice.

    According to Dr. Sidney M. Wolfe, director of Public

    Citizen’s Health Research Group, “while it is not

    known whether these pre-cancerous lesions will lead to

    colon cancer, he and other cancer experts do not

    believe use of the weight-loss drug is a risk worth

    taking.” I agree! I would rather find other ways to

    lose weight than risk my life taking Alli!

    I am a 60 year old female, and took the pills for two weeks, only at dinner time. I eat fat-free breakfasts and lunches, so I felt the pill was not necessary at those meals. After two weeks, I began awakening @ 3:00 a.m. with stomach and back pain. The pain worsened with each passing night. I stopped taking the pills, and the pain disappeared! I will try taking the pills once or twice a week, and hope that they will be effective and help with weight loss. I did lose a few pounds during this trial, but not worth the pain!
