Xenical and Alli Lawyer
Xenical and Alli lawyers are product liability lawyers; that is, Xenical/Alli lawyers represent individuals who have been hurt by products that are defective or dangerous, whether the defect is due to negligence on the part of the manufacturer or other reasons. Xenical and Alli are linked to liver damage, an especially harmful medical condition that should not be the result of taking a prescribed (Xenical) or over-the-counter (Alli) weight loss aid.

Much Criticism of Xenical and Alli
- “the switch of orlistat to OTC status would be a serious, dangerous mistake in light of its marginal benefits, frequent co-existence of other diseases, common, bothersome [gastrointestinal] adverse reactions, significant inhibition of absorption of fat soluble vitamins [A, D, K and E],” and more.
Minimal Benefits, Definite Risks
In fact, both Xenical and Alli have limited benefits as weight loss drugs. They must be used in concert with a low-fat, healthy diet and an exercise plan; even when used as directed, they simply help a user lose a bit more weight than if she or he used diet and exercise alone. As Public Citizen has noted, the risks of Xenical and Alli may well outweigh their minimal benefits.

The FDA is acutely aware of the possible link between Alli, Xenical and liver damage, having received many reports of liver injuries among individuals who have taken these drugs. The FDA issued an early warning about this link in August 2009, and the agency has asked GlaxoSmithKline and Roche (the maker of Xenical) for all information the companies may have about liver injuries experienced by Alli or Xenical users.
