Alli's Treatment Effects

The new diet drug, Alli, has some interesting "treatment effects." Here they are:
  • You may feel an urgent need to go to the bathroom. Until you have a sense of any treatment effects, it's probably a smart idea to wear dark pants, and bring a change of clothes with you to work
  • You may not usually get gassy, but it's a possibility when you take alli. The bathroom is really the best place to go when that happens
  • You can use a food journal to recognize what foods can lead to treatment effects. For example, writing down what you eat may help you learn that marinara sauce is a better option than Alfredo sauce
Amazing how the pharmaceutical industry spins side effects as "treatment effects." Bada bing bada boom.
