Xenical and Alli have the same problem. If you take a big enough dose to get weight loss, you are going to poop orange oil.


WARNING! Don't read further if you are easily offended because I'm quite frank about my experiences.

The orange poop oil (sometimes called anal leakage) is annoying because it's very viscous and seems to penetrate clothes immediately -- sometimes all the way to the bottom of the chair. If you are wearing something light, like white pants, it can be very embarrassing when you are in public places. It sure makes a mess! You can't hide the evidence either because as soon as you get up the chair will have the dreaded spot of poopy oil. :oops:

Sometimes you will get enough warning to rush to the bathroom but other times you won't know about it unless someone asks you what is on your butt, or you see it on the chair. Unfortunately the poop oil can seep out without giving you a sensation that there is leakage so you won't even know unless you get a warm wet feeling -- and by then it's way too late. By the time you feel it your pants are going to be soaked -- unless you are lucky enough to be very close to a wad of toilet paper. :oops:

The oil can range in color from a light yellow [/b]to a dark red. Usually it's a bright orange color, and for some reason it shows on all clothes.

The orange oil stinks like liquified poop, and since it's oily it's not easy to wipe off your butt. It can get over everything and toilet paper just gets some of it off because it forms a sticky film on your skin. Usually when you wipe your butt it gets all over your hands because it's smeared over your buns, crotch, and legs. More than once I was in a stall and couldn't pull up my pants because after wiping my anal area my hands were covered with poop oil, which also made opening the door rather disgusting. Yuck! Most of the time I wiped the handle out of courtesy to the next one to use the stall, but sometimes the entire bowl and toilet seat was so stained with scummy oil I figured most people would walk out before they used it.

I sure hope nobody had the misfortune of grabbing the toilet door handle with the poop oil on it!

If you find yourself in the same situation, sitting in a stall wondering if it's safe to come out, my advice is that you should get an extra huge wad of toilet paper to wipe your butt so that you don't get as much on your hands. It can go right through toilet paper so be careful!!!

Another warning -- you might just think you are taking a dump, but the oil will come out with the regular feces. Lots of times it feels like diarrhea. Always be cautious when wiping because the oil might be all over you by the time you are finished with your business.

:oops:

Cleaning the orange poop oil from your clothes requires stain remover. Just be sure you hide your orange stained underwear from prying eyes like kids or spouses. Kids can be especially cruel if they spot the oil on your underwear.

Another thing that can be embarrassing is that the oil will stick to the sides of the toilet. Sometimes just flushing the toilet causes the oil to swirl around enough to stick on the sides of the toilet, and other times it comes out of your anus in a high powered spray that gets all over everything. That's OK if you are in a public restroom because the janitors will have to deal with it, but anytime else you will have to clean it before one of your friends or family sees the mess. If you are at a guest's house you will have to find a way to clean it off the sides of the bowl because the orange oil looks very obvious when it sticks to the white porcelain. It won't come off the toilet bowl unless you apply a solvent, so look around for caustic toilet bowl cleaner or something lile rubbing alcohol. Warning -- the oil will stick to toilet bowl brushes. :roll:

One time I was in an airplane and lifting off when I felt the wetness between my butt cheeks. I tried to squeeze tight in order to stop the leakage and succeeded somewhat, but I suffered bad abdominal cramps. When the seat buckle sign went off I ran to the bathroom to clean up -- thank God I had an aisle seat! Once I finished pooping and cleaning up the mess, I stuffed a big wad of kleenex between my buns. Good thing I did because I leaked more! I sure hope that airplane seat was cleaned before the next passenger sat there because the spot was grotesque and disgusting.

After landing I was afraid of getting out of the airplane so I waited until everyone was out before I left. Well intentioned people motioned me to go ahead, but I politely told them I'm not in a hurry (he!he!). Probably only the flight attendants and pilot saw the orange stain on my posterior as I quickly stepped out of the airplane.

I did notice small weight losses, but that's probably because I started to be afraid to eat fat. That's a fear we should all have, so in that regards I think alli and xenical do something useful.

The mind can compensate and play funny tricks on diets. I stopped taking Xenical whenever I had meetings or had plans to fly on a plane, or go on a long walk etc. Bicycle riding is especially bad. As time went on I found myself not using Xenical for fear that I would get the orange poop oil. I even stopped taking it whenever I knew I was going to eat a greasy dinner, thereby defeating the purpose of the drug, because I knew the price to be paid later.

Of course the less you use the drug less weight you lose, so after awhile I just decided to quit taking it.

If you plan on using Alli, be sure to have plenty of baby wipes, and fresh underwear and pants. When you are at work have these items in a shopping bag and put it in a place you can reach quickly. Put some kind of disposable cover on your chair, and have some carpet cleaner handy just in case an accident happens. Never hesitate to run to the bathroom if you have any sensation of needing to go, and always know where the bathrooms are for emergencies.

I wish you luck on your journey to lose weight.

That just sounds a bit extreme to me to be honest. I've been on Alli for almost 3 weeks now. There have also been times that I've flirted around the 15 grams of fat per meal and there have been times where I cheated and ate whatever for 2 days (for my daughter's 7th birthday) and just didn't take my pills.

I have only seen a few orange droplets twice since taking Alli and they were on the same day when I went to the bathroom and had a bowel movement. Nothing came out on it's own without me noticing, which to be honest, I have been scared to death of ... especially after reading things like this.

But I guess everyone is different and the original post doesn't apply to everyone. I just wanted to show a different opinion due to how one sided the original post appeared to me.

It definitely does vary by individual, and if you are taking only the dose for Alli you are taking half the dose I did. Of course you will get half the benefit and less orange poopl

Uh Thanks for that very "forensic" description.

I just started taking the Alli and have been taking it for about 9 days. I cheated a bit over the weekend just to "see' What would happen, worse case scenario. So I go to a Mexican restaurant. My first experience with the orange monster.

I do a lowfat diet anyway and would normally while dieting not eat the massive amount of fat in the food I ate. I also live in Maryland and love my blue crabs with butter. Quite a deadly combo with Alli. Here is the strangest thing I found.

I did not have issue until Monday morning after about 3 cups of coffee with fat free creamer. OMG my entire weekend resolved itself in one morning/afternoon hail of events. Made working difficult and cant help but think the coffee caused this reaction since I didnt have any over the weekend.

Since then I have watched my fat content closely and have been doing great. The Alli helps me because I think twice (sometimes 3 tmes) about my fat intake. My hubby smoked ribs for dinner and instead of the customary 4-6 of the baby backs, I ate 2 with rice and corn. I was full and happy.

Say what you will, good or bad about Alli but I have more than 120 pounds of weight to reach my ideal weight and I need the help.

Great suggestion. So, if you cut out all the greasy and fatty foods, why do you need to take Alli?
