Monologue

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Ben Fuchs discuss two weight loss drugs currently in the news.  The first is the obestiy drug Rimonabant which was unanimously rejected by an FDA advisory panel citing safety concerns.  Next they discuss the FDA's approval of the over-the-counter weight loss drug "Alli" marketed by GlaxoSmithKline.  The drug is basically a lower dose form of orlistat with side effects of diarrhea, upset stomach and rectal leakage.
