General Information On Alli
Alli is a weight loss drug that is to be taken as supplement to a reduced calorie diet, behavior modification program, and a regular exercise regime. Losing weight may reduce risks of several health related issues, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, breathing problems, shorter lifespan, and certain cancers. Alli also prevents you from regaining the weight that you have lost after Alli treatment.
The generic name of active ingredient in the medicine is Orlistat, and it belongs to the pharmacological class of GI lipase inhibitors. The patient receives Alli in the form of oral capsules.
The body breaks down dietary fats into smaller chunks before absorbing them. Alli blocks some of the fats that you eat so that they are not absorbed by your body. The undigested fat passes out of the body through your bowels. In this way, absorption of excess fat is blocked, and your weight is kept in check. As Alli does not block the absorption of calories derived from non-fat foods or sugar, you will need to monitor your calorie intake.
Side effects of Alli
After taking Alli, some patients may commonly experience problems with gums or teeth, headache, mild skin rash, fever, sore throat, chills, flu symptoms, cough, sneezing, or cold symptoms including a stuffy nose. Although these are mild side effects of the drug, you should inform your doctor at once if any of these become too troublesome.
Some patients may also experience fatty or oily stools, oily spotting on undergarments, brown or orange colored oil in the stools or oily discharge, gas with discharge, loose stools, uncontrollable bowel movements, increase in the frequency of bowel movements, stomach pain, rectal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, weakness, clay-colored stools, dark urine, jaundice symptoms, or loss of appetite. These are natural effects of the fat-blocking action of Alli. In reality, they are signs that the drug is functioning as expected.
Inform your doctor immediately if you witness severe vomiting or nausea, severe pain in the upper stomach spreading to the back, and faster heart rate. These may be symptoms of pancreatitis and need to be treated at once.
Dosage of Alli
Alli is not to be used by patients less than 18 years of age. You will need to take one Alli 60mg capsule with each fat-containing meal. However, you should not take more than 3 Alli capsules in 24 hours.
Along with Alli, you will also need to take a multivitamin capsule once a day, usually at bedtime. As Alli may make it difficult for your body to absorb certain vitamins and supplements, you should talk to your doctor about how to take them.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
