Digital News Report – The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are warning consumers not to buy Slim Forte Slimming Capsules and Slim Forte Double Power Slimming Capsules because they contain sibutramine. The sibutramine is a controlled substance that has been restricted in the US because it could cause a large increase in blood pressure and/or pulse rate.
This diet pill supplement could be risky for those that have heart problems, such as coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. Additionally, the FDA caution that these diet pills could interact with other medications that could be life threatening.
Slim Forte Slimming Capsule and Slim Forte Double Power Slimming Capsules were sold on several different websites and were distributed by LA Beauty Store, Inc.
The FDA said there is a growing trend for diet pill marketers not to disclose all the ingredients. This could pose a safety risk for consumers.
If consumers have the weight loss products listed above, the FDA suggests that they stop taking the diet pills and dispose of them. If they have any ill health, the individuals should consult with a medical professional.
