To many in the medical profession, "over-the-counter" (OTC) weight loss products have long been under a veil of suspicion regarding their safety and effectiveness. Ephedra, a stimulant that was a component of a number of OTC products, was banned from the market when it was found to be linked to an increased risk for stroke and heart attack. Hydroxycut products, which had been marketed as "fat burners" and as "energy-enhancers," were recently removed from the market by its manufacturer because of reports of liver damage. Even orlistat, which is still available in both OTC and prescription form (Alli and Xenical), is being evaluated by the FDA due to concerns regarding potential liver problems. This is in addition to the well-known side effects of this medication that includes oily spotting on underwear, flatulence, urgent bowel movements, fatty or oily stools, increased number of bowel movements,
abdominal pain and inability to control stool.
The new problem of "contaminated" OTC Weight Loss Products. Perhaps
even more troubling than the issues surrounding these products, however, is the recent finding of "contaminants", mostly prescription drugs, in OTC weight loss products.

Potential adverse effects of these medications include dehydration, electrolyte loss, low blood pressure, allergic reactions and interactions with other medications. ● Cetilistat is an experimental obesity drug not approved for marketing in the United States which works in a similar manner and with similar side effects as orlistat.

products are sold as "nutritional supplements" rather than medications. In doing so, they were able to bypass many of the FDA requirements for assuring purity, safety and effectiveness. The internet has become a major outlet for these
products also, which may help to keep them off of the FDA's "radar screen."

all of them for potentially harmful contaminants. Undoubtedly, more will be

the following signs of health fraud:
● Promises of an "easy" fix for problems like excess weight, hair loss, or ● Claims such as "scientific breakthrough," "miraculous cure," "secret ingredient," and "ancient remedy." ● Impressive-sounding terms, such as "hunger stimulation point" and "thermogenesis" for a weight loss product. ● Undocumented case histories or personal testimonials by consumers or ● Promises of no-risk, money-back guarantees.
