Can Alli (orlistat) interact with other medications?

ANSWER

Always tell your doctor about all the medications you’re taking. Alli can interact with certain drugs, affecting their levels or how they work in your body, which could lead to life-threatening consequences. Check with your doctor if you’re taking warfarin (a blood thinner), diabetes or thyroid medications, or other weight loss drugs. In some cases, your dosages may need to be adjusted.
