Chaotic Labz Mayhem spiked with prescription-only drugs

Long-time readers will remember Chaotic Labz for their BMF Salvation product, which we revealed in 2012 had been spiked with the prescription-only drug cyproheptadine. Today, another of their products has been found to contain undeclared pharmaceutical ingredients.

The FDA issued a public notification today to advise customers not to purchase or use Chaotic Labz Mayhem, because it contains the undeclared ingredients dexamethasone and cyproheptadine.

Cyproheptadine

Cyproheptadine we covered in the previous article; it’s a prescription-only antihistamine presumably included in Mayhem and BMF Salvation for its side-effect of increasing appetite.

Dexamethasone

Dexamethasone

Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid used as an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant, and is prescribed to treat conditions like asthma, allergies, and rheumatoid arthritis. Again, it seems to have been included for the side-effect of increased hunger and weight gain, though the risk of much greater side-effects is possible, as are drug interactions and withdrawal symptoms – particularly as the ingredient is undeclared and the dosage unknown.

If you have been using Mayhem you’re advised to contact a medical professional, as corticosteroids should be titrated down from, not stopped “cold turkey”, to avoid withdrawal that can cause adrenal insufficiency.
