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

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Love in S contains sibutramine and N-desmethylsibutramine. N-desmethylsibutramine is structurally similar to sibutramine. Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or heart rate in some people 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:
