A recent study linked the weight loss pill Meridia® to heart attacks in users over 55 years of age with preexisting cardiovascular conditions when used over a long period of time. Meridia is a brand name for sibutramine hydrochloride, which was approved by the FDA in 1997 to assist overweight patients with weight loss. More than ten years later, the company has yet to issue a warning, even though records show a continuing increase in consumer consumption.
