On April 13, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an advisory warning citizens to stop using Tri-Methyl Xtreme, a dietary supplement marketed by Xtreme Products of Las Vegas, Nevada, to promote muscle growth.

Reports Emerge in Three States Thus Far

The FDA’s press release indicates that the product allegedly causes serious liver injury. The federal agency says that it has received three reports of adverse events impacting individuals in New Jersey, Utah, and California.

The FDA maintains an adverse event reporting program so that patients and healthcare professionals can report problematic medical diagnoses as they occur.

FDA Official Comments

Charles Lee, a physician and senior medical advisory at the FDA, stated that products containing anabolic steroids pose a “real danger to consumers.” He went on to assert that it is possible that the formulation will cause irreversible organ damage in certain cases.

The FDA urges anyone that used Tri-Methyl Xtreme to contact a healthcare professional, particularly if abdominal pain, back pain, discolored urine, unexplained fatigue, or other possible unwanted side effects occur.

When a defective product causes injury, it is possible to seek compensation in the state’s civil courts for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses.
