so I weigh in tomorrow morning (week 2) but last week, I lost nothing. Have had no side effects. Really feel nothing!  Like I'm taking a placebo. If Alli is 60 mg orlistat, why not take 2 so it equals prescription strength?  Anyone else try this?

    I guess in theory you could but I wouldn't want to advocate that you do as I'm not a medical professional...I do see the logic.

    Could you ask your Dr for the prescription version?

    Hi angiv3, I am the same as you but I am on 120mg, it will be week 2 on Wednesday for me , i am not having any of the side effects that I was warned about either.

    I posted this the other day and the replys I got were it just means that I have been doing things right and you only get the bad side effects if you have to much fat intake in you diet so fingers crossed that you lose weight,

    Good luck
