Were you looking for information on Alli? Ali is a common misspelling of Alli.
 
Alli™ is the first (and currently only) non-prescription weight loss drug available that has been approved by the FDA. It decreases the absorption of fat in the diet by binding to the enzymes that break down fat molecules. The drug comes in capsule form and is taken with each fat-containing meal. Possible side effects of Alli include stomach pain, an urgent need to have a bowel movement, and diarrhea.
