Latest News:  FDA Warns Consumers Not to Buy or Use Weight Loss Supplement Containing Drug
(Date Posted: 3/3/2015)

On March 2, 2015, the FDA warned consumers not to buy or use weight loss supplement Oxy ELITE Pro Super Thermogenic (USPLabs) because it was found to contain fluoxetine.

Fluoxetine is an FDA approved selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drug prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, and other conditions. SSRI drugs are associated with serious side effects including suicidal thinking, abnormal bleeding, and seizures, and can interact with other common medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen, which can cause ventricular arrhythmia or sudden death..

Oxy ELITE Pro Super Thermogenic was identified by the FDA during an examination of international mail shipments.

Consumers who have purchased this supplement should discontinue use immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any adverse side effects. Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.

In 2012, USPLabs was warned by the FDA because their Oxy Elite Pro product contained DMAA, an illegal ingredient in dietary supplements.
