    Can Alli (orlistat) be taken if on t4 (levothyroxine) therapy

    Wanting to know if adding alli (Orlistat) to cutting stack be ok when on T4 replacement therapy. I hear that orlistat can block or decrease the effectiveness of thyroid medication. Also hear that if taking orlistat and t4 then you should take them at least 4 hours apart. Yes I know why would you want to take orlistat itís a waist of money and you could shit yourself and have a leaky asshole. Thatís only if you eat too much fat. And the reason why I consider adding it is I have a shit tone of it and didnít need to pay for was just given it. So thatís why Iím considering adding it to help a bit with the cut just like adding anabolics and fat burners for that extra kick. So for the ones that reply with why would you take that I wouldnít. Ok but your ass is taking everything elseís under the sun for fat loss like clen ,t3 and more. Again only considering adding it since i already have it on hand otherwise I wouldnít spend the money on it. Just wanting to know if it wonít effect my thyroid med (t4)

    Didn’t find much more than you already know but those appear to be the interactions. “Taking levothyroxine and orlistat at the same time may reduce the blood levels of levothyroxine. You should take these medications at least four hours apart.” -drugs.com

    That's about all I could come up with as well. You could call your local pharmacy and see if the pharmacist knows anything different.
