Products found to contain undeclared medicines

 
The United States: Public Notification: Eradicate Capsules contain hidden drug ingredients sibutramine and desmethylsibutramine
 
The FDA is advising consumers not to purchase or use Eradicate Capsules, a product promoted and sold for weight loss on various websites, including www.x2zero.com, and possibly in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Eradicate Capsules contain 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/../ucm491212.htm

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