This is a portion right from the FDA page, and most of the products have been tested and contain Sibutramine, better known perhaps as Meridia in it’s official drug name.  The link will tell you more about the drug in is prescriptive form. 

What is sibutramine and what are the associated risks?

Sibutramine is a Schedule IV controlled substance and the active pharmaceutical ingredient in Meridia, an approved prescription drug to treat obesity.

Some of the identified products recommend taking more than 3 times the recommended daily dosage of sibutramine.  Because of this, even consumers without a history of health problems that take these high doses of sibutramine may suffer serious adverse effects if they take these products, such as increased blood pressure, tachycardia, palpitations, and seizure. 

Here’s the revised list.  There are some other drugs in the listing to be aware of as well, but sibutramine seems to have the majority hold, no wonder these brands are making their way into places where they should not be.  The page does list all types of potential interactions with other drugs, as well as the potential side effects, so worth a look if you are thinking about some over the counter weight loss products and maybe more importantly, those sold on the web too.  BD
