  • Alli - can you take 2 to equal 120 mg of orlistat?

    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?
