FDA Warns Consumers Not to Buy or Use Muscle Enhancement Supplement
Cyproheptadine is a prescription antihistamine used for the treatment of seasonal allergies. It can cause drowsiness and decreased mental alertness.
Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid that can cause changes in blood sugar and blood pressure, damage bones and muscles, cause psychiatric problems, and, when taken in high doses for a prolonged period of time, adrenal suppression.
Because abruptly discontinuing dexamethasone can cause withdrawal syndrome, consumers who have taken Mayhem should immediately consult with their health care provider to safely discontinue use.
Mayhem is promoted to increase appetite and muscle growth. It is sold on some websites, including www.chaoticlabz.com, and in some retail stores.
