The Herbal Diet Supplement poses a threat to consumers because Sibutramine is known to substantially increase recalled 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. This Supplement may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.
