Case Name: Dremak v. Iovate Health Sciences Group, Inc., No. 3:09cv01088
Case Summary:

The Plaintiffs sued the makers of Hydroxycut claiming the product was misrepresented as being safe and effective for weight loss. The case was settled before the matter was settled. Hydroxycut unsurprisingly denies these claims.

Hydoxycut is the company with the commercial where people dance behind a cardboard image of their old fat self, only to throw aside the old them to reveal the new svelte them. Happiness, wealth, and thinness are just a bottle of pills away!

If you are not taking the money and are getting your rebate in the form of more Hydroxycut, my advice is get the Hydroxycut Caffeine Free. The other hardcore appetite suppressants ingredient are fine, it is the caffeine that is going to kill you. You might also want to think about whether these pills really work – if you started taking them in 2006 and in 2013 you still need them perhaps you should start looking at some other options.
