Alli is a lower-strength version of the prescription medication Orlistat. As it is a low dose it is available over the counter without a prescription. We will need you to answer a few simple questions to allow our pharmacists to make sure it is the right medication for you to use. Alli weight loss tablets should be used along with a reduced-calorie, lower-fat diet.
Alli can be used by individuals who are overweight, with a BMI >28.
One 60mg capsule should be taken no more than three times a day. It can be taken immediately before, during, or up to one hour after a meal. If a meal is missed or contains no fat, the dose should be missed.
How does Alli work?
The main component of Alli is the drug Orlistat. This works by inhibiting the enzyme lipase which is produced within the stomach and by the pancreas. Lipase breaks down fats into their constituent components, enabling them to be absorbed by the gut. If this process is prevented, the fats essentially pass straight through the digestive system without being absorbed, resulting in reduced calorie intake and, hopefully over time, weight loss.
The recommended dose of Alli is one 60 mg capsule to be taken three times daily. The capsule should be taken with water immediately before, during or up to 1 hour after each main meal.
If a meal is missed or contains no fat, the dose of Alli should be omitted
No more than three 60 mg capsules should be taken in 24 hours.
Eat lower-fat meals to reduce the chance of diet-related treatment effects.
Treatment should not exceed 6 months.
