Joint Supplement Contains Drugs, FDA Warns

On June 5, 2015 the FDA warned consumers not to buy or use joint pain supplement Pyrola Advanced Joint Formula because it was found to contain diclofenac and chlorpheniramine. 

Diclofenac is a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which can increase the risk of cardiovascular events and gastrointestinal damage, such as bleeding, ulceration, and fatal perforation of the stomach.

Chlorpheniramine is an antihistamine drug, which may cause drowsiness and affect mental alertness.

Pyrola Advanced Joint Formula is sold in some retail stores, and various websites, including amazon.com.

Consumers who have purchased this supplement should discontinue use 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.
