Latest News:  Abnormal Heart Rhythms Linked with Unauthorized Natural Product, Health Canada Warns
(Date Posted: 7/28/2015)

On July 27, 2015, Health Canada (the Canadian equivalent of the U.S. FDA) announced that it has received a serious adverse reaction report of abnormal heart rhythms associated with the use of an unauthorized natural product in Canada called Remogen, which contains the drug ibogaine.

Ibogaine is psychoactive substance derived from the root bark of an African shrub, which is sometimes promoted to treat drug addiction. Serious adverse events associated with use of ibogaine have been reported in other countries, including respiratory arrest, cardiac problems such as irregular heartbeat, seizures, symptoms related to psychiatric and metabolic dysfunction and death.

There are no authorized health products containing ibogaine in Canada. However, Health Canada recently seized a number of unauthorized products containing ibogaine which were being sold in Canada under the names Remogen, Ibo + Plus, Endabuse and Iboga by Phytostan Enterprise Inc.

It is not clear whether any of these products were sold in the U.S., where ibogaine is classified as a controlled substance.
