Australia: Safety advisory: Lose Weight 30 capsules contain the undeclared substance sibutramine
 
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested a product labelled Lose Weight 30 capsules and found that the capsules contain the undeclared substance sibutramine. Consumers are advised that sibutramine is a prescription-only medicine (which was the active ingredient in Reductil). It was withdrawn in October 2010 after a study showed an increased risk of major cardiac events. TGA investigations have shown that a number of people in Australia may have bought the product online. Consumers are advised to stop taking the product and take any remaining capsules to their local pharmacy for safe disposal. If they have any concerns arising from their use of the product, consult their health care practitioner.

Please refer to the following website in TGA for details: http://www.tga.gov.au/alert/lose-weight-30-capsules

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product.
