The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning the public not to use the dietary supplement Reumofan. The FDA has received reports of bleeding, strokes and death after people have taken the pills.
Reumofan Plus and Reumofan Plus Premium are marketed as natural remedies for arthritis and muscle pain, yet the FDA says the supplements contain several prescription drugs. The FDA ran a chemical analysis on the supplements and found Reumofan Plus contains three drugs, including the muscle relaxant methocarbomal and the anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone. These drugs can interact with other medications cause life-threatening side effects in some consumers.
The FDA warned the public about the products in June, but they have continued to receive reports about complications with the supplement.
The Associated Press reports that the supplements are manufactured in Mexico by Riger Naturals and sold in the U.S. online and at retail stores.
