Health Canada is advising consumers not to use More Slim due to concerns about possible side-effects.

Product Description: More Slim is promoted for weight loss.


Reason for Warning: The Hong Kong Department of Health has warned against the use of More Slim because it was found to contain the undeclared pharmaceutical ingredient sibutramine.

Sibutramine is a prescription drug used in the treatment of obesity and should only be used under the supervision of a health care professional.

Possible Side-Effects: Unsupervised use of sibutramine may cause headaches, increased heart rate and blood pressure, chest pain and stroke.
