How do I take Alli (orlistat)?

ANSWER

Alli comes in capsule form. It’s taken by mouth three times a day, either with a meal that contains a little bit of fat, or up to one hour afterward. If you eat a no-fat meal, your doctor may tell you to skip your dose. Never take more medicine than recommended.
