WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- There's a shortage of the only FDA approved over-the-counter weight-loss drug, Alli.
The maker, Glaxo-Smith-Kline, says that's because it's running low on the drug's active ingredient, Orlistat. But Alli should be back in stores within the next month.
Some people don't want to wait and are buying the drug online for four or five times the price.
