The FDA is advising consumers not to purchase or use ABX Weight Loss, a product promoted for weight loss, because it contains sibutramine, a controlled substance. There is no word on whether or not this product has been associated with any adverse effects or illnesses.
Sibutramine was removed from the market in October 2010 because it substantially increases blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some people and may be a significant risk for people with heart disease. It may also interact in life-threatening ways with other medications.
