Choosing Generic Vs Branded Alli

X

Generic medicines contain the same active ingredient and are equally effective and medically equivalent as the branded products but are available at a lower price. Generic manufacturers have to demonstrate that they are medically identical to the branded product - i.e. they offer the same quality, strength, stability and effectiveness.

Generic medicines are required meet the same standards of safety, quality and efficacy as the branded medication. To receive market approval from the European Medicines Agency and MHRA, a generic medicine must be 'bioequivalent' to the originator product.

What is Alli?

What Is Alli?

Alli (Orlistat 60mg) is used in the treatment of obesity. Alli prevents your body from absorbing the fat from the food you eat. By reducing the amount of fat that is absorbed, Alli can help you to lose weight more easily.

Alli isn't a magic bullet which makes dieting easy; it's designed to be used with a support programme, and can reward your efforts by boosting your weight loss. So for every 2 lb you work to lose, adding Alli can help you lose 1 lb more. Alli works by blocking 25% of the fat you eat from being absorbed so makes your healthy choices even healthier.

When you follow the Alli programme, you have access to a range of support tools to help you on your weight loss journey. You'll also learn new habits to help you reach and maintain a healthier weight; from setting your personal daily fat and calorie targets based on your current weight and activity levels, to which foods to avoid and dealing with cravings.

How Alli Works?

The active ingredient (orlistat) in Alli is designed to target fat in your digestive system. It stops about a quarter of the fat in your meals from being absorbed. This fat will pass out of the body in your stools. You may experience diet-related treatment effects (see section 4). It is therefore important that you commit to a lower-fat diet to manage these effects. If you do, the action of the capsules will assist your efforts by helping you to lose more weight compared to dieting alone. For every 2 kg (4 lb) you lose from dieting alone, Alli can help you lose 1 kg (2 lb) more.

How To Take

  • Alli should be taken three times a day at mealtimes - before, during or up to one hour after each meal.
  • Alli capsules should be swallowed whole with water.
  • Alli chewable tablets should be chewed and swallowed. No water is needed with Alli chewable tablets.
  • Do not take more than three capsules or chewable tablets a day.
  • Don't take Alli if you're going to eat a meal that doesn't contain fat or if you miss a meal.
  • You should also take a multivitamin every day at bedtime to ensure adequate absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K.
