CINCINNATI - Just when you wanted to lose weight for swimsuit season, it turns out there's a shortage of Alli, the popular weight loss drug.
The maker, Glaxo-Smith-Kline, says it's because it's running low on Alli's active ingredient, Orlistat.
But the company says Alli should be back on store shelves within the next month. Of course some people can't wait, so they're buying up Alli over the Internet, at four or five times the price!
Alli is the only over-the-counter weight loss drug approved by the FDA.
