Medically prescribed for - Hydroxycut is a weight-loss supplement used to suppress appetites. Hydroxycut is composed of ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin.
Adverse reactions experienced - The most common side effects from taking Hydroxycut are increased blood pressure, nosebleeds, headaches, rapid heartbeats, restlessness and insomnia. Because Hydroxycut contains Ephedra, a product that led to a professional baseball player's death, there was increased concern that this product led to many unwanted serious side effects.
Status of drug - The Federal Drug Administration has recognized the link between these adverse reactions and the drug and has banned it and any drug that contains Ephedrine as one of its ingredients.
See your doctor if you or your child have experienced serious health problems after taking Hydroxycut. You also may wish to contact an experienced products liability attorney who can help you protect your legal rights and get compensation for your injuries.
