Alli & Xenical

If you're taking either Alli or Xenical ... stop.

Both are being recalled and under lawsuit for causing heart and liver damage and in some cases organ failure.

We want to be thin. But I want you all to be alive more.


This has apparently been going on for the past month but they're still selling these products in the stores. I have never been supportive of Alli, but I didn't know how dangerous it was, I only knew how ridiculous it was.

So yeah. That's my Public Service Announcement of the day.

Thanks for the announcement. EDs give use enough health problems without stupid diet pills making it worse.

(Interestingly, I was THIS close to buying Alli just a couple days ago, before I weighed myself. I'm unsupportive of diet pills too, but I was starting to worry that I'd never break the plateau. Oh how Ana changes our minds....)

My diet pill love died when Hydroxycut got recalled.

I hope the makers of Alli get their asses handed to them.

I still need to get my kidneys checked, but I don't seem to be having any of the problems of it. Doesn't help that I'm a minor case hypochondriac, so if something can go wrong, in my mind, it has, and I'm not going to die, just SUFFER TERRIBLY FOR ALL OF ETERNITY.

Or something.

Thanks for the heads up o.o!

Yeah. Diet pills mess everything in your body up. That plus starvation is what caused my body to like, die and then force me to get surgery this summer.

I wish there was a magic pill that WORKED and didn't destroy everything.

Hmm. I expected no less! I'm afraid to take diet pills, thank god.

Okay so I looked up our face picking problem on the Internet and I guess it is a form of OCD. They have like support groups and everything. Crazy. I didn't look too much into it though.

Thank you for suggesting the hotline to me! I hadn't even thought of that. I am calling the next time I get a moment alone. Thanks for the idea girl :) !

What's wrong with me?

I'm not afraid enough of diet pills. I'd rather lose weight. I currently: take alli, hydroxycut, take seizure meds, and take a drug that had only been available in europe, but was recalled for serious side effects, so I then ordered online from india.

I'm scared, but not scared ENOUGH. I worry what will happen to me before one year is out, before 3 years, 5 years, 20... But does that stop me? I still want to lose that weight. I NEED to lose weight.

This eating disorder has such a hold.

P.S. the seizure meds I take are not prescription. I also order them online for their weight-loss properties. I forgot to mention that.
