Muscle Supplement Linked to Serious Liver Injury

On April 13, 2015, the FDA warned consumers not to use the muscle growth supplement Tri-Methyl Xtreme (distributed by Extreme Products Group) because it has been linked to serious liver injury.

Tri-Methyl Xtreme is sold on the internet and in some retail stores and gyms. It claims to contain anabolic steroids; use of anabolic steroids, synthetic steroids and steroid-like substances can cause liver injury, as well as increased risk of heart attack and stroke, and other long-term effects, such as infertility.

Adverse events associated with use of this product have been reported in California, New Jersey and Utah.

Consumers who have purchased this supplement should discontinue use immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any adverse side effects, especially unexplained fatigue, abdominal or back pain, discolored urine or any other unexplained changes in health. Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
