Products found to contain undeclared medicines

 
The United States: Public Notification: Dynamizm Capsules contain hidden drug ingredient sibutramine
 
The FDA is advising consumers not to purchase or use Dynamizm Capsules, a product promoted and sold for weight loss on various websites and possibly in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Dynamizm Capsules contain 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: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/../ucm491205.htm

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