FDA Warns Consumers Not to Buy or Use Weight Loss Supplement Containing Hidden 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.
L-Carnitine Sob Strengthening Version Slimming Miracle Capsule 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.
