The United States: Public Notification: Citrus' Fit contains hidden drug ingredients sibutramine and desmethylsibutramine
 
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Citrus' Fit, a product promoted for weight loss. This product was identified by FDA during an examination of international mail shipments.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Citrus’ Fit contains sibutramine and desmethylsibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons. Desmethylsibutramine is a substance structurally similar to sibutramine. 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: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/../ucm515857.htm

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