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

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Slim Fit X 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/../ucm513553.htm

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