Dear Vanessa
It is indeed true that slimming products containing sibutramine have been linked to serious cardiovascular events, including stroke, high blood pressure, and arrhythmias, and in some cases have proved fatal. The fact that Simply Slim, an over-the-counter slimming pill that contained approx. double the dose of sibutramine of pharmacological products like Reductil and Ciplatrim, has been withdrawn by the Medicines Control Council because of the long list of serious side-effects reported by users in SA, clearly indicates the seriousness of this problem.
