Reumofan Dietary Supplement Lawyer
Experienced issues after taking Reumofan Plus or Reumofan Plus Premium?
After receiving numerous reports of harmful side effects including bleeding,
death, and strokes from the dietary supplements Reumofan Plus and Reumofan
Plus Premium, the FDA is warning the public to avoid using Reumofan dietary
supplements. Reumofan Plus and Reumofan Plus Premium are products marketed
as natural dietary supplements for arthritis and muscle pain, but, according
to the FDA, they contain several potentially harmful active pharmaceutical
ingredients. While dangerous on their own, these dietary supplements can
also interact with other medications and pose serious health risks. Currently,
The FDA laboratory is involved in an ongoing investigation.
An FDA laboratory analysis of Reumofan Plus found that it contains the
prescription drug ingredients:
Dexamethasone – A corticosteroid, commonly used to treat inflammatory conditions,
that can impair the body’s ability to fight infections and cause
high blood sugar levels, bone and muscle injuries, and psychiatric problems.
Dexamethasone can also cause adrenal suppression when taken for a prolonged
period of time or at high doses. Sudden discontinuation of corticosteroids
after long-term use or use at high doses can result in a withdrawal syndrome
that includes fatigue, nausea, low blood pressure, low blood sugar levels,
fever, dizziness, and muscle and joint pain.
Diclofenac Sodium – A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that may cause
increased risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke,
as well as serious gastrointestinal (GI) adverse events including bleeding,
ulceration, and fatal perforation of the stomach and intestines.
Methocarbamol – A muscle relaxant that can cause sedation, dizziness, low blood
pressure, and impair mental or physical abilities to perform tasks, such
as driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery.
Reumofan Plus Premium was found to have both diclofenac sodium and methocarbamol.

Reumofan Plus and Reumofan Plus Premium are manufactured in Mexico by Riger
Naturals and sold in the U.S. in certain retail outlets, flea markets,
and various internet sites. These two products are labeled in Spanish
but there is the possibility that an English label version exist. The
FDA is working closely with the Mexican Ministry of Health, who ordered
Riger Naturals to recall their product. According to the FDA, “the
longer the product(s) is taken, the higher the risk of these serious health
consequences.” If you have taken either of these products, the FDA
recommends you consult with your healthcare professional to safely discontinue use.
