Limbrel Linked to Life-Threatening Health Problems

December 5, 2017 — The FDA issued a Safety Alert about the risk of life-threatening liver damage, lung inflammation, and other health problems from Limbrel® manufactured by Primus Pharmaceuticals of Scottsdale, Arizona.

“The FDA reminds consumers not to use Limbrel because of the risk of drug-induced liver injury, and a lung condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Consumers taking this product should stop immediately and contact their health care provider.”

Limbrel Recall

The FDA has asked Primus Pharmaceuticals to voluntarily recall Limbrel due to the risk of severe side effects, but the company has not removed Limbrel from the market. The FDA says Limbrel is an unapproved new drug, but it is being advertised as a “medical food.”

What is Limbrel?

Limbrel is a capsule that is currently being advertised as a “medical food” that can manage the metabolic processes associated with osteoarthritis. It has been linked to a wide range of severe side effects. The FDA has received 194 reports of people who had side effects.

What Ingredients Are in Limbrel?

Limbrel comes in two dosages: Limbrel250® and Limbrel500®. The label states that Limbrel contains two types of flavonoids: baicalin (from Scutellaria baicalensis) and catechin (from Acacia catechu). Both types of Limbrel also contain zinc. The FDA is reviewing the formula and alerting consumers in the meantime.

Limbrel Side Effects

Limbrel has been linked to many different serious side effects, but the two most serious side effects are drug-induced liver injury, and a lung condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

Drug-Induced Liver Injury

Limbrel can damage the liver and reduce normal liver function. The most common sign is elevated blood levels of AST and ALT, which are enzymes that leak from the injured liver and into the blood. Other symptoms include itching, anorexia (loss of appetite), fatigue, and nausea.

Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is an immune system disease in the lungs. It occurs in some people when substances they ingest trigger their immune systems to over-react, causing inflammation in the lungs. This makes it harder for the lungs to function properly. Over time, chronic inflammation can cause irreversible lung scarring.
