Alli is used for weight loss in adults aged 18 and over who are overweight, and have a body mass index (BMI) of 28 or above. Alli should be used along with a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. BMI is a way to find out if you have a healthy weight, or are overweight, for your height.
Alli should be used along with a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet. Try to start this diet before beginning treatment.
Alli can be taken immediately before, during a meal or up to one hour after a meal. The capsule should be swallowed with water. This usually means one capsule at breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you miss a meal, or your meal contains no fat, do not take a capsule. Alli does not work unless there is some fat in the meal. If you eat a high-fat meal, do not take more than the recommended dose. Taking the capsule with a meal containing too much fat may increase your chance of getting diet-related treatment effects
