The United States: Public Notification: Platinum Max Strength Blue Pill Version contains hidden drug ingredients sibutramine and phenolphthalein
 
FDA is advising consumers not to purchase or use Platinum Max Strength Blue Pill Version, a product promoted and sold for weight loss on various Web sites and possibly in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Platinum Max Strength Blue Pill Version 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 people and may present a significant risk for people 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.

Laboratory analysis also confirmed that Platinum Max Strength Blue Pill Version contains phenolphthalein. Studies have indicated that it may be associated with an increased risk of cancer.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/../ucm539778.htm

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