According to the FDA, Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (commonly referred to as “NSAIDs”). NSAIDs may cause increased risk of cardiovascular events, such as Heart Attack and Stroke, as well as serious gastrointestinal damage, including bleeding, ulceration as well as fatal perforation of the stomach and intestines.
Chlorpheniramine is an over-the-counter (“OTC”) Antihistamine used for allergies. Antihistamines may cause drowsiness and affect mental alertness. People taking Antihistamines, therefore, must be warned of these two side effects and not engage in potentially dangerous activities such as driving and/or operating machinery before understanding how these substances can cause them to behave.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Supplements, please do not consume them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
