FDA warns of dangerous ingredients in Joyful Slim herb supplement

The FDA is warning consumers that Joyful Slim herb supplement, marketed as a natural herb for weight loss, contains undeclared desmethyl sibutramine, an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood 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 (CHF), arrhythmias or stroke.

Consumers who have this product in their possession should stop using it immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they experience any symptoms associated with the use of Joyful Slim.
