Well alli the over-the-counter version of Xenical is going to hit stores June 15th. I'm sure there are a ton of fat chicks (I can say this I was/am one) going to be camping outside of a Walgreens in hopes this will be their miracle. I know you are gonna pop two or three at a time to make them "full strength" right? Here's some advice from me: save your money. There isn't a diet drug I haven't tried and I do believe Xenical was the worst IMHO. Lemme give you the visual... hideous orange grease shoots out of your ass like a jet propelled rocket and sometimes without warning. Serious anal leakage. The trick is you are so horrified by this process that you cut out fats and lose a little weight. I was on it for a month lost 8 pounds... so not worth it. Seriously you know you've hit rock bottom when your anus is leaking orange oil.
I love the treatment effects (direct from the myalli website)
gas with oily spotting
more frequent stools that may be hard to control
"The excess fat that passes out of your body is not harmful. In fact, you may recognize it as something that looks like the oil on top of a pizza."
I will never eat pizza again.
Edited to add: People on OH keep asking if it's OK to take post-op. I can't imagine any Dr. in there right mind giving it to a post-op person and it's sad to think someone post-op by choice would get back on that diet pill rollercoaster. We had WLS to get off that ride.
Just my 2 cents.
