FDA advises patients not to use Herbal Doctor Remedies’ medicines

[7/23/2019] FDA advises patients not to use any drugs manufactured by Herbal Doctor Remedies, Monterey Park, California, because these drugs were made under poor conditions.

Herbal Doctor Remedies manufacturers a variety of unapproved new drugs, including Brain Forte, New Life, Lump Shrinker, Asma-F, Herpes-P, Anemia Off, Bone Fixer and Tumor Shrinker offered on several websites. FDA recommends patients stop using these drugs and dispose of them.

During FDA’s recent inspection of the Herbal Doctor Remedies’ facility, investigators observed insanitary conditions and numerous serious violations of current good manufacturing practices (CGMP). Herbal Doctor Remedies cannot assure the quality or safety of its products due to the poor conditions and manufacturing practices at the facility. On July 11, 2019, FDA recommended that Herbal Doctor Remedies recall all unexpired drugs. Herbal Doctor Remedies initially agreed to recall; however, the company has not taken action to remove these potentially dangerous drugs from the market.

To date, FDA is not aware of any reports of adverse events associated with medicines manufactured by Herbal Doctor Remedies. Patients who use Herbal Doctor Remedies’ medicines and have concerns should contact their health care professional.

FDA issued a warning letter to Herbal Doctor Remedies in 2017 for marketing unapproved and misbranded drugs. Using drugs with unsubstantiated claims may prevent patients from seeking FDA-approved treatments that have been demonstrated to be safe and effective.

FDA encourages health care professionals and patients to report adverse events or quality problems experienced with the use of any medication to FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program:
