Our expert says:
The Medicines Control Council (MCC) suspended sales of Simply Slim on Friday the 5th January 2010 because this product was found to contain approx. double the dose of sibutramine found in those slimming pills that contain sibutramine which are available with a doctor's prescription. The ethics of this and all the other 'quick fix' and over-the-counter slimming pills are indeed a problem that has been left unattended for far too long. Perhaps the Simply Slim saga will make the MCC more proactive in future.
