Thanks for the feedback so far. I haven't had any of the gross side effects with it while I've been using it in conjunction with low-fat, low-carb diet that falls between 1200-1500 calories. I'm just wondering if it is helping that much. I think I'll stick with it for now, but if I get side effects I'll pull back or stop.

my sister was perscribed it by her dr in wales(there you can get it on perscribtion)she lost 17kg in 2 months by using it and following a low fat diet.she had to stop as they found out that she had a rare blood desiese that involves her taking morpherine and according to the alli packet you cant take it when on morpherine.my sister also has heart problems which make it imperative that she looses weight.now the two specialist are agueing over her takening.one wants her to start taking it again and the other doesnt.dont know if this helps.lol

I love how there is so many low carb options now too, like the dreamfields pasta and flip out low carb wraps, breyers low carb ice cream, and all the tasty low carb candies, shakes and bars.

I bought a month supply of Alli, and wasn't impressed at all. My weightloss seem to have just stopped once I started taking it. I didn't have any of the "side effects" thank goodness, but needless to say, I didn't finish my 30 day supply.

*hmph

I also do the low carb diet. I only crave once in a while, and when I do.. I let myself have a little to make sure I don't go overboard any other time.

I used it for a few months, correctly and with low fat food, etc., and I still had all the side effects (or "treatment effects" as they call them) no matter what I ate.

I personally just do the low carb diet, its not a short term thing for me either. Diabetes and heart disease run in my family,so far I have lost 42 pounds and don't have cravings for anything with sugar or white flour breads and pastas.

I wanted to get some opinions on using Alli in loosing weight. I used it before but incorrectly by continuing to eat high fat/calorie foods and large quantities. It was to the point that I constantly had an upset stomach, loose bowels, and immediate urge to use the bathroom.

However, I've been intergrating it back into my current healthy lifetstyle by using it periodically with my higher fat meals (generally dinner and some lunches). I don't take it every day or with every meal as I don't want to have the side effects that I had before. So far it seems to be okay.

What do you guys think about using it? I know I don't want to take it the rest of my life and that it isn't some 'magic' pill, but do you think it is safe to be taking while I'm working to drop the bulk of my weight?
