The United States: Public Notification: Black Gold X Advanced contains hidden drug ingredient sibutramine
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Black Gold X Advanced, a product promoted and sold for weight loss on the website, and possibly in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Black Gold X Advanced contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This product may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details:

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