FDA cracks down on over-the-counter copycats.
Recently, the FDA issued statements regarding homeopathic and over·the-counter copycats. In a current USA Today article, an FDA spokesperson said "there is no evidence oral over-the-counter products are effective for weight loss, and while they may not be dangerous, they are an economic fraud."
Releana® is pleased the FDA is addressing this most important issue. Since medical weight loss is our specialty, we have been concerned for quite some time about counterfeit products currently being marketed. We would argue these products are both fraudulent and dangerous. Also it is very unsafe to follow a low calorie diet without a doctor's supervision.
There is a monumental difference between Releana® and the retail versions being called into question by the FDA. They are not the same.
At Releana®, our product is manufactured to u.s. lab standards and requires a prescription from your doctor. We have provided treatment to hundreds of patients over the years with Releana®. Our patients have experienced amazing results after many years struggling with failed diets.
We hope this information eliminates any misunderstanding regarding the differences in these products. Releana® is medical grade and double tested at a compounding pharmacy. hCG copycats and cheap retail counterfeit products, are currently receiving the FDA scrutiny it deserves.
