View document as PDF.

Public Citizen petitions the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to immediately ban both the prescription drug, Xenical (orlistat; Hoffman-La Roche), and the over-the-counter (OTC) drug, Alli (orlistat; GlaxoSmithKline), because they expose patients to serious risks that greatly outweigh their minimal clinical benefits.

December 16, 2013, FDA denial of petition.
