This month, yet another prescription diet drug is being investigated by the FDA. A few months ago the drug in question was Alli, now it is Meridia. Merida contains the active ingredient sibutramine. A new study has shown that the drug substantially increases the risk of a non-fatal heart attack or stroke in patients with a history of cardiovascular disease. In Europe, the drug has already been taken off the market, and in the U.S. the FDA will soon be reviewing the drug's safety.
Have you been taking Merida? If so, you may want to talk to your doctor about the risks it poses to your health. If you have been taking the prescription drug and suffered a heart attack or stroke, there may be something you can do.
