December 4, 2014 — The FDA is warning consumers not to buy or use several weight-loss pills, including the bee pollen supplements “Bee Thin” and “Bee Slim,” because they contain dangerous hidden ingredients that are not listed on the label.
FDA warnings for diet pills:
All of the products are sold on websites and possible retail stores. Laboratory analysis detected sibutramine
Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was originally sold as the prescription obesity drug Meridia. However, approval was withdrawn in October 2010, after the SCOUT clinical trial found that sibutramine increased a user’s risk of cardiovascular events by 16% compared to a placebo.
The FDA warns:
“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.”
Sibutramine can also interact in life-threatening ways with other medications a person is taking.
