Singapore: Nutriline Bluvelle sold online found to contain banned substance and caused adverse reactions in consumer
 
The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) is alerting members of the public not to purchase or consume Nutriline Bluvelle, a weight loss product sold online. The product was tested by HSA and found to contain a banned substance, sibutramine. Nutriline Bluvelle was marketed as a health supplement for slimming. A female in her 20s experienced rapid heartbeats, anxiety, a drastic decrease in appetite, dizziness and lethargy after consuming Nutriline Bluvelle. Such symptoms are common adverse reactions associated with the use of the banned substance, sibutramine.

Sibutramine was previously available as a prescription-only weight loss drug but has been withdrawn from Singapore since 2010, due to an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Other serious adverse effects associated with the use of sibutramine include high blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, hallucinations and mood swings.

Members of the public are advised to stop taking Nutriline Bluvelle immediately, and consult a doctor if they feel unwell or are concerned about their health.

Please refer to the following website in HSA for details: http://www.hsa.gov.sg/content/hsa/../nutrilinebluvellesibutramine.html

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