GlaxoSmithKline announced in February 2007 that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved orlistat for over-the-counter use. It’s been christened “alli,” and it contains 60 mg of orlistat, as opposed to the prescription form, Xenical, which contains 120 mg of orlistat.
Alli, the only FDA approved weight loss product available without a prescription, works by blocking 25 percent of the fat in the food eaten per meal.
In conjunction with a reduced calorie low fat diet (each meal should contain about 15 grams of fat), alli’s supposed to help people lose 50 percent more weight than diet alone. Alli should be available in stores nationwide by summer 2007.
There are a number of cautions associated with it, so check with your doctor and follow the directions on the bottle.
