United States: Public Notification: Super Slimming Herb contains hidden drug ingredient
 
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announces to advise consumers not to purchase or use Super Slimming Herb, a product promoted for weight loss. This product was identified during an examination of international mail shipments.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Super Slimming Herb 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 heart 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.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details: http://www.fda.gov/drugs/medication-health-fraud/public-notification-super-slimming-herb-contains-hidden-drug-ingredient

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