Has anyone taken the diet pills "Alli"...did it work??

I need to loose 15-20 lbs. Has anyone tried this?? How long did it take, until you lost weight if any, did you have any side effects? How much have you lost to date. Would you recommend it to your family/friends??

    Alli is fine if you work the whole program. Be aware though there can be some unpleasant side effects. I personally cannot deal with 'anal seepage' The main ingredient in Alli is orlistat. Olistat literally helps keep fat from being absorbed in the body so the fatty substance slides through your colon mixing with fecals residue and leaks out some peoples anus
