Dream Body Weight Loss is voluntarily recalling several of its products due to undeclared sibutramine.

The recall affects the following products:

· Dream Body Extreme Gold 800 mg, 30 gold capsules

· Dream Body 450 mg, 30 white capsules

· Dream Body Advanced 400 mg, 30 purple capsules

These items are packaged in clear packer jars and brown foil packets and were distributed across the country between January 2013 and June 26, 2016.

Dream Body Weight Loss has not received any reports of adverse events stemming from the recalled products thus far.

The company has notified its customers of the recall via e-mail, and it is arranging for returns. Individuals who have the recalled products are being advised to stop using them immediately and discard them.

Sibutramine, an appetite suppressant, was withdrawn from the US market in October 2010. The ingredient is known to increase blood pressure and pulse rate, which can cause problems in patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. In addition, sibutramine can interact “in life-threatening ways” with other medications a patient is taking, the FDA noted in a press release.

The presence of sibutramine was discovered after FDA sampling and testing. This undeclared ingredient means Dream Body Weight Loss’ products are unapproved new drugs.

Pharmacists and consumers should report any adverse reactions to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online, or by mail or fax. In addition, patients who have experienced problems related to the use of these products should seek help from a health care provider.
