What is Alli?
Alli is the only FDA-approved (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) over-the-counter, weight loss aid. It is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. It is the OTC version of pharmaceutical weight loss pills called orlistat (Xenical).
Both Alli and Xenical are used as part of a weight-loss program, with a low-calorie, low-fat diet and regular physical activity. This means you should limit your intake of high-fat foods and follow a reduced calorie healthy eating diet while taking Alli.
Alli is used in overweight adults 18 years of age and older with obesity who have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or more. Xenical is approved for use in adults with a BMI of 30 or more and is also approved for individuals with a BMI of 27 to 30 who have other risk factors such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
What doses of Alli are available?
Alli is available in capsule form, in the following doses: 60 mg.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
