The dietary supplements Emagrece Sim and Herbathin should not be used and should be returned to suppliers because they "may contain several active ingredients, including controlled substances, found in prescription drugs that could lead to serious side effects or injury," the agency announces Jan. 13. FDA has issued an import alert to prevent importation of the products, which are made in Brazil by the firms Fitoterapicos and Phytotherm Sim. The products contain fluoxetine HCl (Prozac) and chlordiazepoxide HCl (Librium), which are used to relieve anxiety, according to FDA. They also were found to contain Fenproporex, a stimulant that is "not approved for marketing in the U.S." and is converted in the body to amphetamine. The supplements are sold on the Internet, and FDA is "aware of commercial imports of these products and individuals importing them for personal use"...
