Marble, from what I can tell, an FDA panel recommended approval of non-prescription orlistat last January (brand name Xenical) but final approval hasn't been sought or received yet. Xenical's manufacturer is planning on marketing the non-RX version as 'Alli' and it will be half the strength of prescription Xenical. I'm sure it will be huge news once it gets final approval.
