How safe is xenadrine?
Aug 8, 2000
Hi. I recently bought the product, Xenadrine, from a local GNC. Since it has not been FDA "approved", it is hard to obtain information on how safe it is. Do you know anything about this supplement and its safety? Thank you.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
You should look on the label and see what ingredients are in it. As I said before, there are no "fat burners" This is likely to be ephedrine which can cause cardiac problems, racing heart, high blood pressure etc, although it may decrease your appetite. Ephedrine is the usual OTC diet pill. I would ask everyone who asks questions about non prescription drug to read the labels and include the ingredients when you ask questions. Thanks Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
