Americans have been turning to dietary weight loss supplements such as Hydroxycut to aid in their weight loss efforts for years. Sadly, on May 1, 2009 the FDA strongly suggested that consumers of Hydroxycut stop using the product immediately due to consumer reports of liver injuries, a liver transplant and at least one death after taking Hydroxycut. It’s unfortunate when a popular weight loss product such as Hydroxycut causes more harm than good for the consumer. If you suffered liver damage or injuries after taking Hydroxycut, you should seek legal advice from our highly qualified Tampa dangerous drug attorneys at The Florida Law Group as soon as possible.
Serious Side Effects Linked to Hydroxycut
In accordance with the FDA’s strong recommendations, the manufacturer of Hydroxycut, Iovate Health Sciences, Inc., agreed to issue a Hydroxycut recall and remove a number of Hydroxycut products from the shelves. The manufacturer warned consumers about the potentially life-threatening side effects associated with Hydroxycut products and told them to stop taking them. Even those consumers who followed the manufacturer’s directions and took only the recommended doses were considered at risk for a potential complication from taking the products.
Common side effects associated with Hydroxycut include:
- Liver damage
- Liver failure
- Cardiovascular disorders
- Elevated liver enzymes
Recognizing the Signs of Liver Damage
As a consumer, it’s extremely important to recognize the warning signs associated with liver damage. If you experienced any of the below symptoms, they could be associated with liver damage.
Hydroxycut side effects can lead to the following liver symptoms including:
- Loss of appetite

- Loss of appetite

Liver problems, seizures, and even death are no laughing matter. These are serious, life-threatening side effects that can be caused by taking Hydroxycut.
