Food Supplement Alert: Limbrel Capsules Linked to Potentially Life-Threatening Health Problems, Drug-Induced Liver Injury and Severe Lung Condition Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis. If you currently taking or have taken the drug Limbrel, you may be eligible to file Limbrel class action lawsuit.
On December 5, 2017, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended that Primus Pharmaceuticals voluntarily recall Limbrel, a capsule marketed to “manage the metabolic processes associated with osteoarthritis.” As of December 5, 2017, the manufacturing company Primus Pharmaceuticals has not yet acted to remove the product from the market.
Although marketed as a medical food, the FDA has preliminary determined that Limbrel is an unapproved new drug, and reports of drug-induced liver injury, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis (a lung condition).
The FDA advises consumers not to use Limbrel because of the risk of drug-induced liver injury and a lung condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis. If you are taking this product, discontinue it immediately and contact your health care provider. Health care providers who are aware that their patients are taking Limbrel should advise them to stop using it.
Symptoms of drug-induced liver injury can vary and may include jaundice, nausea, fatigue, and gastrointestinal discomfort. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your health care provider immediately.
Symptoms of hypersensitivity pneumonitis can vary and may include fever, chills, headache, cough, chronic bronchitis, shortness of breath or trouble breathing, weight loss, and fatigue. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your health care provider immediately.
