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.
