Could Have Died!! - New York, NY

I received the Zerona Treatment and was told I must take the CURVA supplements twice a day with food. I had one allergic reaction to the pills, where I turned bright red on my arms. It went undiagnosed at the spa...I was told I was having "an allergic reaction to something." About a week later, still undergoing the treatments, I took the pills one morning, with a light breakfast,. and started burning up. I went to the bathroom to cool myself off with cold water...and delirious got on my knees thinking I would get relief if I filled the bathtub with cold water. I passed out, waking to find my head had hit the bottom of the
bathtub....and there were large drops of blood dripping from my forehead.

I was terrified. I FOUND OUT I SHOULD NEVER HAVE TAKEN THE PILLS BECAUSE THEY ARE NIACIN...and dangerous to anyone with low blood pressure.. which I had told the spa I had in my intake. I spent that night in the ER...where it was confirmed that was what caused me to faint. I could have died from the fall.

I have been contactted by the people who regulate the Curva and they claim they are investigating the pills . They have asked me for my medical records.

If you have had any problems with Curva too...I would like to know.

I took the Curva supplements along with the Zerona treatments. I am a very healthy woman who only needed to lose about 10- 15 pounds at most and do a little firming.
I had one allergic reaction to the Curva that went undiagnosed by the staff... they said I was having an allergic reaction to "something"...not equating it with the pills.

My second allergic reaction was terrifying. I was at home alone. I got so hot it was painful, bright red all over especially my face. Then went to the bathroom to put water on my face.. While leaning over the bathtub I blacked out... waking to find large drops of blood dripping from my forehead onto the bottom of the bathtub, the shower curtain on my head, and not knowing how I got there. While unconscious, I had defecated in my clothes! I was horrified. I spent that night in the emergency room where it was confirmed by two doctors that the Curva supplement had
caused me to pass out. I have slightly low blood pressure to begin with and it was very dangerous for me to take it. I had not been warned of this by the spa I had gone to.

I called the Curva manufacturers ( in Texas)... they took lots of notes on the phone and told me a doctor would call me "tomorrow" I never heard back from them. I assume people are still being given the supplement. If someone has the reaction I had while driving, for example, it could prove deadly.

I am in the process of filing a complaint with the a FDA. If you have had the same or a similar experience taking Curva please feel free to contact me. Any lawyers who are already involved in cases related to this supplement I would also love to hear from. I would be eager to join a class action suit.

Zerona recommends the supplement and I would like the FDA to know how dangerous they are for ANYONE with low blood pressure. I am a very healthy woman...the low blood pressure I am told is actually good, not a problem. This was such irresponsible recommendation. All I had to do was go on WebMD to see people with low blood pressure should NOT take it. Why didn't the spa kinow this? I could have had a serous concussion or even drowned ( I was told). I WAS TERRIFIED when I woke up... not know how I got there, the shower curtain on my head and blood dripping everythwere!Updated on 12 Jul 2012:The people at the facility I went to were very nice... but obviously not informed about the dangers of the Curva. If they were informed, then they were negligible.
