Magic Slim

FDA warns consumers about weight-loss product containing hidden drug ingredients.

The FDA is advising consumers to avoid “Magic Slim,” a product sold for weight loss that was found to contain hidden drug ingredients. According to the FDA,

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Magic Slim contains sibutramine.

Sibutramine can substantially increase blood pressure and pulse rate, and can present a danger to patients with heart or circulation issues. The FDA removed sibutramine from the market in 2010.

Magic Slim was also found to contain phenolphthalein, a laxative the FDA reclassified in 1999 as “not generally recognized as safe and effective.”

The FDA advises consumers to stop using Magic Slim and throw any remaining product away.
