Popular weight loss drug label change

Posted:

The FDA is updating the label of a popular weight loss drug.

There have been thirteen cases of severe liver damage linked to the over-the-counter weight loss drug Alli, and the prescription version of the drug called Xenical.

However, FDA officials say they have not been able to determine the weight loss drugs *caused* the liver damage.

Nearly ten-million people have used Alli since it was made available in 2007.
