My husband is overweight n diabetic. He bought a slimming product and has been having diarrhea for a few days. I Google and found out the product contains sibrutamin. What should I do?

Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information sibrutamine is the active ingredient that is used for losing weight as it suppressed the appetite. Sibrutamine has been banned from Malaysia as it increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. The symptom of diarrhea might be due to the side effect of sibrutamine.

Avoid the nuisance stomach problems with the right care for your digestive system.

I advise you to go to the nearest clinic and get treated. If you have any more enquiries, you can click on the link (DoctorOnCall) and speak to our doctors in private and get the consultation you need on the phone. Thank you.
