Consumers should stop using these products immediately and throw them away
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on safety alerts for weight loss products.
The FDA issued a public notification on June 19, advising consumers not to purchase or use Sport Burner, Toxin Discharged Tea and Sliming Diet because they contain undeclared sibutramine or fluoxetine. Sport Burner, Toxin Discharged Tea and Sliming Diet are marketed as weight loss products. Sibutramine is a controlled substance removed from the market in 2010 due to safety reasons. It can substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in certain cases and may present a serious risk for patients with arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, or stroke. The product may also interact in life-threatening ways with other drugs.
Fluoxetine belongs to a class of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) for the treatment of premenstrual dysphonic disorder (PMDD), panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bulimia, and depression. SSRIs have been associated with serious side effects including seizures, abnormal bleeding, and suicidal thinking. When taken by patients together with other medications for common conditions (psychosis, heart conditions, chemotherapy, blood clots, bipolar illness, anxiety, aspirin, ibuprofen, or other drugs for depression) ventricular arrhythmia or sudden death can occur.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com monitor daily and update the website providing accurate information on all relevant FDA safety alerts. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds “we are determined to keep an eye on FDA announcements concerning weight loss products and inform the public. For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on investigating these safety alerts and getting the word out.”
As the FDA advises “Consumers should stop using these products immediately and throw them away.” And the Agency adds “Consumers who have experienced any negative side effects should consult a health care professional as soon as possible.”
