    Sorry to hear that but you cant really blame anyone but yourself :( Are you sure its ok to double the dosage of Alli? That being said its gonna be double the amount you pay for it each month. And the wii fit isnt the most reliable weighing system out there :D.

    Sorry to hear that charlotte :( Doc should have a bit of sympathy for it being xmas!

    I'd also like a breast reduction. One of the other reasons I'm trying to lose weight. I wasn't sure what weight I needed to before being considered though.

    You may want to ask your pharmacist before taking double the dosage. They maybe more than just mg's to worry about.

    I know that Alli is half the strength of Xenical but I was wondering what difference it makes? Don't they both just hold back a third of the fat you take in? Or does Xenical block more?

    They both do the same job. The ONLY reason why Alli is 60mg is because it can be sold over the counter. Any stronger needs a prescription.
