A case of a young user of Thermadrene (SportPharma USA, Inc, Concord, Calif), an herbal remedy for weight loss, was studied. We believe that Thermadrene can cause serious complications such as ischemic stroke. Because these remedies are available over the counter and are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration or similar organizations, there is a need for critical scrutiny of their content and side effects, as is performed for other pharmaceuticals.
