Side effects of Reumofan Plus include strokes, bleeding and liver injury, according to USA Today. As of 2015, this drug, touted as a natural treatment for joint and arthritis pain, may cause serious, even deadly, injury to the body.
Reumofan Plus contains active ingredients, such as diclofenac and methocarbamol, not listed on the label that can have adverse reactions and are unapproved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Some side effects include dizziness, insomnia and high blood sugar levels. There are reports of more serious conditions related to this drug, such as gastrointestinal bleeding, liver and kidney problems, stroke and even death.
Reumofan Plus is a drug manufactured by Riger Naturals, a Mexican company, which both American and Mexican health officials warn consumers against, says the FDA. One of the biggest problems with Reumofan Plus is that authorities cannot find the operations to shut them down, USA Today explains. Consumers can purchase the product online and at flea markets without being aware of the serious side effects related to the drug. Some consumers take the drug regardless of the side effects because they claim it effectively treats pain. However, withdrawal from this product can cause dizziness, nausea, fatigue and low blood pressure.
