Weight Loss Supplement Contains Undeclared Drug
Sibutramine, the active ingredient in the obesity drug Meridia, was removed from the U.S. market in October 2010 because it can substantially increase blood pressure and pulse rate in some individuals, and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This drug may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.
LV Shou Reduces Fat is packaged in white plastic bottles containing white and green capsules. It is available for sale to U.S. consumers through major online retailers and through the company's website, www.lvshou.us/Product.
The warning also included weight loss supplements STB Summit of the Thin Body S Woman Degreasing Burning Pill and Lightning 10.0+ Reduces Weight; however, these products do not appear to be available for sale to U.S. consumers.
