Purchased may 14, 2020....no matter what I eat...still nothing , no gassiness, weight loss or leakage one month later..I'm actually constipated with alli go figure
They changed the formula......not the same as it was in 2010. The alli now is complete garbage. I have tried it several times since it was put back on the shelves. What a waste of money, I just threw away what I had, good riddance. I will not waste any more money or time with this expensive garbage.
This once amazing magical pill; is now equal to all the other crap being sold!! I know a few people that fell victim to liver disease after using Alli,(2008 formula), I think this is why it was pulled off the shelves. It did work....it was amazing!!!!
Alli worked a lot better before. It still works, but you have to basically love on fat-free food. If you eat nothing but plain white rice and salads, you will lose weight but is it really from Alli or the diet itself? I would like to think it is the diet. Either way... If you can stick to something strict you will see results with or without this.
The formula clearly was changed for the worse. It does nothing. You are better off having your friend give you sugar pills and telling you they will help you lose weight than buying these.
FOR ANYONE WONDERING: Someone at work had told me that this product was taken off the shelf because it was "too effective". It was causing men and women to become dehydrated and they had to change the formula. The new one is "safer" but not nearly as effective.
I am disappointed. When did they change the formula?? I took this back in 2009 and it worked so well for me and I wanted to use the pills again and now they don't do anything but make me tired and give me migraines. Such a shame.
If I could rate this lower I would. Years ago, I got ALLI from Walgreens and LOVED the results. I had since put on weight after having 2 kids and I decided to give it another try. What a mistake. Not only does it do nothing for weight loss, I FELT HUNGRIER! Pass on these!
This pill does not work anymore. It worked in the past but now is ineffective. It doesn't matter what I eat it does not have any results like it did when I first started taking it.
I HAVE WRITTEN TO THE COMPANY SELLING/MAKING ALLI. I HAVE INCLUDED OUR CONCERNS. I WILL POST THEIR RESPONSE IF THEY WRITE BACK.
Started using Ali in 2008-9. Went from 14 to 8 in 2 mos. A bottle of 120 lasted 90 days. Awesome. I took it daily . it went off the market and I tried it when it came back. Nothing. I blew up to 222. I lost to 214. Ihad a gastric sleeve lost 24 lbs immediately after. Stayed 190 three years and preparing for a gastric bypass at 210. I miss the old Allo!
Now I see everyone has had the same experience. FORMULA CHANGE renders ALLI useless !!
This product has changed. I used Alli a few years ago and the side effects definitely showed in the toilet. It does nothing now except give me gas and an upset stomach. I'm going to try to get my money back from Amazon.
I want to add ,the company reimbursed me after I sent them back what was left in the bottle. I asked them to let us know if they find why it stopped working :} I wont hold my breath
stopped working , I think they changed the ingredients .I purchased a bottle in 2015 (it worked great) 2016 it did not work ...the company should be honest and tell us how it changed.. waste of $
Used to work well prior to being off market. Now is totally ineffective. I wi not purchase again until ALLI announces a NEW/OLD modification to the formula. Lost money and gained weight. Sad.
It used to work , since it's been back on the market it does not work. I actually gained weight thinking it worked over like 3 days on binging on Fri toes and cheese. That doesn't work lawsuit I say! Years back k it worked wonders I could eat a whole pizza and be 114lbs at 5"6' now I'm just fat. Waste of 60 bucks. I want it back. And I want my 3plb the fuck gone!
I was able to lose a good deal of weight 4 years ago due to alli. The reason being was because I could eat a high fat meal once a day and the fat seemed to flush out. Since Alli came back out on the market it does nothing!What I wonder is what are in those capsules if you don't get the same effect you used to? I know of someone who could research this and I will be interested to find out.
Been on Alli for 5 days now and have dropped 3 pounds!! No treatment effects either!!!
The worst waste of money I've spent. It use to work perfectly. Now it does nothing but drain my bank account. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT AT ALL.
Been using this product for many years both when it was the prescription drug and cross counter. Since they brought it back on the market it does not work a total waste of money
I hope the makers read our comments. I was successful losing 15 pounds in 10 months with the help of this product. The product has not been the same for me since this summer (June 2016). Most people are probably OK with the treatment effects, although this might have been a motivator for them to change the formula. The new formula is a dud.
The difference shows up immediately. Before it was pulled off the market, Alli worked great for me. Purchased one bottle since it came back in the market. Was an absolute DUD plus cost $12 more than before. Won't be fooled again.
I am preaching to the choir. I took Alli about 5 years ago. Was not obese, but wanted to lose 10 lbs before a back surgery, it did the trick. Then I could not find it anywhere, and recently found it on Amazon. Ordered a bottle, still eat pretty healthy with the occasional fatty foods, but nothing, no change that you had grown to expect. I am JUST reading the reviews, all makes sends
Not too bad so far. Lost just over a stone in 2 months but still not enough. Will carry on using it but doubt it will change.
Alli has changed. Like everyone else has said previously, it doesn't help with weight loss! Want all my money back.
I had some weight loss at the start but after some time, it's all stopped and I've began not losing anything. I've gave it time but it's not helped me lose that excess weight.
Alli is the worst I've used and I've used some bad weight loss products.
Completely useless! Don't buy this. I've used it for 2 weeks and already am fed up with it. No loss of weight at all.
Same as everyone else. Not the same drug. I lost 45lbs before the new release now nothing.
I lost 86 pounds on ali..when it returned nothing....i purposely ate mcdonalds and NOTHING! These people should be ashamed....im very disappointed. I will not but it again or recommend it...it doesnt do anything. Coffee works better
I believe the old formula Alli contained a non-listed ingredient, perhaps phenolphthalein (EX-LAX) which worked in symbiosis with the active ingredient, generic Xynical. Clearly, they have changed their formula--it's not the same product. There is only ONE reason for this; money. Be it a law suit, liver damage, whatever, there is a serious problem and Alli is no longer a trusted product/name.
Upon doctor's recommendation, I used Alli for several years with great results (went from a size 12 to a size 8). When Alli came back on the market, I was thrilled and purchased several times. But I noticed that nothing seemed to be happening. No pounds shed,etc. My "test" was to make a sandwich loaded with mayo which should have resulted in lots of uncomfortable discharge. But, nothing happened.
Changed the formula and it is totally ineffective. Not the same chemical.
Took alli as a weight control after lost 72 lbs. After recall zero grease in stool. Took 3 pills after cheesy pizza, Nothing. Figured body built resistance so gave wife who never took before. Same dose same food. Nothing! Yup they did something different to the drug. Shame on you Alli makers!
I took Alli for about a year and lost about 42lbs. Same for my daughter and husband. We were looking for the return of the product. What we bought is not the same. No weight loss. And my husband and I have used Alli on daily basis. We won't purchase anymore. Shame on you for fooling your loyal consumers!!!
Since Alli returned to stores after recall. It's not the same, it doesn't work
I too waited for months to purchase Alli. There is no way this is the same formula. I purposely at greasy fried food (chicken wings with blue cheese dressing) and nothing. Nada. No gas, cramping, oily residue. There is no way this is the same stuff. Shame on GSK for scamming their loyal customers. Won't be buying this again
I took Allu for 4 months about 5 years ago and (TMI) you could see the fat in the toilet everytime... even after eating grilled chicken breast. I lost about 25 lbs. Now, eating ribs, fries, pizza. .. nothing. Absolutely nothing. Ingredient has changed. I actually have an old bottle with some pills in it. Thinking about taking it to the FDA because Alli is lying to theclients.Very disappointed
Since coming back on the shelves this product is NOT the same! I wish I could get my money back.
I also took product before the recall and lost 25lbs. This time it doesn't do shit!!!! I will be getting a refund
I have used alli before very satisfied, this last time I bought from amazon and I think it is a placebo and a rather expensive one, I want my money back or these manufactures need to be arrested
Used from 2008 to 2011. Lost 40 lbs. now, April10,2015, after returning to shelves, bought my first bottle on my third bottle still no wait change whatsoever in fact I gained. I deliberately took in extra fatty food over the Easter holiday absolutely no oil show whatsoever! I will not be buying this product and I will not recommend it to anyone ever again !
I want my money back $60.00 is a lot of money to me. I didn't keep my receipt because I knew I would start to lose weight right away. I have been taking it for almost two weeks and no results. Did they think they could pull a fast one on us? Didn't they thing the public would find out the formula changed. The Executives of the Company are not very smart if they think they can get away with this.
The Company that manufactures Alli has an Ethics problem.Their integrity has been compromised. They have should their good customers a fake drug. Alli was purchased in good faith. I used the product before it was taken off of the market. I had good results. I couldn't Waite to get the new product. It has not measured up. I am very disappointed. I would not buy it again and I will not recommend it
I have been patiently waiting for Alli to come back. I bought a bottle and took it for over a week and nothing happened. I am so disappointed. I didn't get what I paid for. I have no results. I can't believe a Company as large as Smith Kline would put out an inferior drug to the public. They changed the formula. We are not getting what we paid for.I want my money back. What a let down. I waited.
I have used Alli before and lost 30lbs over 6 months. Started again recently and it doesn't seem to be working at all, and I am following diet like I did before? Way too expensive for no results.
Used to work well in 2006/2007. Thru 2011. Lost weight fast for my wedding. Taken off shelves at BBB, bought generic from India till new formula formula came out. Did NOT work at all. A tiny bit of fat came out with stool but even when I purposely ate more fat to test it a few days, nothing happened like it used to. Any fat USED TO come straight out and even beyond my control a couple times.
Old alli formula awesome lost 20 pds now i am going through menapause gained back 8 tried the new formula nothing after 3 months useless
In 2007 I used this product and it was AMAZING, when I finished the bottle I decided to lose the last 5lbs on my own. I got pregnant, 3 months after I gave birth decided to give it another go..NOTHING??? Same diet/exercise routine, no side effects this time; lost weight it wasn't enhanced just from what I was doing w/ diet and exercise. I started shaking the pills to make sure they were filled.
Alli used to work. Now, there seems to be no way to predict. My current bottle, lot number 14409, expiration date 03/16, seems completely ineffective! I don't understand it.
I also used Alli in the past & lost 35 pounds, it was excellent. due to foot surgery I was unable to be as active & gained 10 pounds. Tried Alli when it became available, it does not work to aid in weight loss. I can no longer recommend this product. Save your money!
So GSK you create a product that used to work THEN at your convineance you take it off the market and leave your customers with no real explanation as to why you take it off the market Saying there is a problem with main ingredient OILYSHIT oops sorry I meant Orlistat we'll let me tell you there still is a problem had 1LB of lard for dinner and 4 tablets and nothing????? It does not work anymore.
Hi Peter from NY don't worry about side effects as there isn't any. I posted last and I have put mine in the bin. The tablets are meant to train you to healthy eat. You wont get a dot of anything. They should be recalled and re-tested.
Used Alli in the past and worked for me. Waited months for it to come back on sale. Purchased a bottle from Boots the Chemist June 2013. Just totally wasted my money, its just not the same formula,you wouldn't know what was in it. Just give it a miss I feel like I have been TOTALLY ripped off.
This product has DEFINATELY been changed. Won't be buying anymore. There are too many people, including myself who are noticing this OBVIOUS change.
Are there side effects? You guys mention it does not work really good, I want to give it a try but I'm worried about side effects. Please advise!
There's no side effects surprisingly, but I must say the first batch that came out right after the release, I did experienced really horrible side effects. The newer ones doesn't seem to have any side effects but it's not working the way it used to, or I must say it doesn't work at all!!
I have used Alli before and lost weight. Started again recently and it doesn't seem to be working at all. :( Too expensive for no results.
Alli has definitley change!!! It doesn't work like the it says it should. I wont be buying anymore that is for sure....
Old Alli formula worked great. I lost about 20 lbs. Waited for Alli to come back on market, but it's a HUGE disappointment. Haven't lost any weight. Formula DOES NOT WORK! Alli let me down. Same high price and name, but not the same formula.
Alli has definitely changed! I bought a LOT of the new stuff when it came back on the market and it does not work at all the way it used to! The label still lists Orlistat as the active ingredient, but it is nothing like it used to be! Hoping someone will begin a class action to help us get our money back (it is EXPENSIVE) and force GSK to send us the stuff we PAID FOR! I feel I was robbed!
I used Alli before they were taken off the market and they were very effective. I waited patiently for them to come back on the market and paid a fortune for what are now totally ineffective capsules. They are not from the same batches that others have raised an issue about so it obviously isn't a 'bad batch'. Some people have blamed the heat- the UK is not exactly a tropical location.GSK refunds?
I've had the same experience. It worked before, I lost 30lbs, now nothing! I read the problem was with the casing. Some people are breaking or snipping the capsule before taking it. If anyone tries this, Please let the rest of us know if it works. If it is the capsule not breaking down properly, the company should be notified.
I have been having the same no wieght loss problems as well as no oily stool. I cut open several capsules and about 50 percent of the capsules are empty.
If you check on the official Alli forums, you will find that many new batches are not working. Some customers are posting that heat may be the issue, since Alli is now being shipped from India. Lot 13596 Exp. 01/15 Wal-mart, not working
I used Alli for a long time before the shortage. I recently purchased a new bottle. No oily stool, no weight loss with the new batch. I see that many other customers are having this same problem with the new batches, as indicated on their forums and other sites. Perhaps Alli should do a recall and save customers the hassle.
I too took Alli before they took it off the shelves. I started taking it again 2 weeks ago and nothing is happening,like the previous blogger, even after fatty meal. Before I would have immediate response, I feel almost bloated and constapated
today i started capsiplex and alli combination, in a desperate attempt to lose lots of weight, the capsiplex is supposed to be 100% natural and doesnt interfere with other meds so i thought i would give it a try, will post results if any.
Has Alli changed it's formula? Went on it a year ago and the fat flowed!! Had the usual side effects until I learned how to eat. Went back on it a week ago and nothing, not even after a high fat meal. Did they change the formula? I don't feel it's helping at all.
I have been using alli for a week now and aside from experience oily gas bowel/discharge my menstration suddenly stopped! Only brown spotting and thats it! Im so nervous that i stopped thinking that my period would resume but nothing happened! I called their costumer rep but no help at all! And neither is my doctor!! Just wondering if anybody experienced these too?? Im so scared to have blood clot
I don't like Alli. I haven't lost enough weight, but I've got a lot of annoying sensation
I have been taking Alli for 2 weeks now and have GAINED 2 pounds. I also am having a scary orange discharge. I will take Alli for 2 more weeks to give it a fair chance.
The side effects connected with Alli and Xenical, which seem to be much more serious than indicated on the labeling, such as liver damage, are frightening. It's such a shame that in an attempt to lose weight, one can end up suffering serious harm.
I had a coworker who used Alli and they lost about 50 pounds they eat light and so far hasn't had any of those bowl issues! They also go walking at least 2 times a week. Based on her results I'll give it a try but I know that I have to exercise along with taking this.
I have considered Alli recently has anyone on this board used it and seen success?
I have been overweight all my life, tried this Alli but lost only 2 lbs in a month. Awful result.
Even though Iím far from slim, I know Iím losing it, and Iím going to reach my goal.
With alli, I feel like I finally have the tools to make the weight loss permanent.
The online group has been the most helpful to me. Itís a huge support. However the product is not so good so far...
Lost 35-40 lbs. on this in 2008 in about a year. Gained it back. Bought a bottle a month ago-did nothing. I was so looking forward to being slim again, didn't mind the oily pants, and major blow-outs, just knew how it worked for me. 75 bucks for nothing. Good for back door booty too, lol, yuk.
