Wow. as if being ineffective wasn’t bad enough, many weight loss supplements contain drugs that you didn’t know were in there. Potentially harmful drugs to boot.
For example, Supreme Slim 5.7 was found to contain sildenafil and phenolphthalein recently. On November 9, 2016, the FDA warned consumers not to buy or use this weight loss supplement.
Strangely, both of these drugs are prescribed for erectile dysfunction: Sildenafil, is the active ingredient in Viagra and tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis. These drugs can cause symptoms like headache and flushing, and can interact with medications containing nitrates such as nitroglycerine, resulting in dangerously low blood pressure.
