Arthritis and Muscle Pain Supplement Recalled

On March 12, 2014, Pain Free By Nature issued a recall of Reumofan Plus tablets sold on the company's website, www.painfreebynature.com, because it was found to contain the active pharmaceutical ingredients methocarbamol and diclofenac.

Recalled Reumofan Plus is promoted for the treatment of arthritis, muscle pain, osteoporosis, bone cancer and other conditions. It is packaged in a green and gold box of 30 tablets and was sold on nationwide through internet sales.

This product poses a serious health risk. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drug that can increase the risk of cardiovascular events and gastrointestinal bleeding, and methocarbamol is a prescription muscle relaxant that can cause dizziness, low blood pressure and sedation.

Adverse events should be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.

The FDA first alerted consumers about the dangers of Reumofan Plus in June of 2012, and again in August 2012, after numerous adverse events were reported by consumers and tests revealed it contain prescription drugs.

Pain Free By Nature has ceased distribution of this product at this time.
