Possible Side Effects of the new weight loss drug Alli, as described by GlaxoSmithKline

Filed under: Uncategorized — dregina @ 1:41 pm

1) Alli™ works by preventing the absorption of some of the fat you eat. The fat passes out of your body, so you may have bowel changes, known as treatment effects. You may get:

  • gas with oily spotting
  • loose stools
  • more frequent stools that may be hard to control

2) You may feel an urgent need to go to the bathroom. Until you have a sense of any treatment effects, it’s probably a smart idea to wear dark pants, and bring a change of clothes with you to work…………

3) You may not usually get gassy, but it’s a possibility when you take alli. The bathroom is really the best place to go when that happens.

U – S – A!  U – S – A!  U – S – A!



  1. “You may also experience a decline in invitation to social events, family gatherings and sexual activity.”

  2. Hmmm, I think this sounds worth the side effects. Particularly if you dislike your coworkers or are trying to get out of a relationship. Why are people so turned off by the idea of nice loose stools? Sounds pretty great if you ask me!

  3. you left off this one:
    “While no one likes experiencing treatment effects, they might help you think twice about eating questionable fat content. If you think of it like that, alli can act like a security guard for your late-night cravings”
    think of the possibilities of this approach to weight loss!
    “While no one likes unexpected & uncontrollable bowel movements in the middle of the day, they might help you think twice about eating at all. If you think of it like that, alli can act like a psychotic killer for your desire to eat food”
