M-Drol Lawsuit Filed Over Liver Damage From Dietary Supplement

Two men are suing the makers of M-Drol and P-Plex, two muscle-building dietary supplements sold online, which they allege caused them to suffer liver damage.

The product liability lawsuits were filed on November 17 on behalf of Jesse Woods and Heath Stevison in Galveston County District Court in Texas against Competitive Edge Labs, the manufacturer, and TF Supplements, which distributed the products. According to a report by Iron Magazine, the claims allege that the dietary supplements are defective and unreasonably dangerous, resulting in both men suffering liver damage.

Both plaintiffs say they were hospitalized with signs of liver failure after taking M-Drol for several weeks in an effort to put on muscle mass. Woods also said he took P-Plex, another Competitive Edge Labs supplement, which also allegedly contributed to his injuries. The products were bought online through Galveston-based TF Supplements.

The M-Drol lawsuits say Woods and Stevison suffered permanent liver damage from taking the supplement, and have accused the defendants of negligence, product liability and breach of warranty. TF Galveston has stopped selling M-Drol.

Competitive Edge Labs’ website has a notice that it has ceased to sell M-Drol and P-Plex.

Dietary supplements have come under increased scrutiny in recent months by federal regulators in the wake of a Hydroxycut recall issued in May, after FDA identified a number of reports where users suffered serious and potentially life-threatening liver damage. In July, the FDA warned consumers not to take dietary supplements which contained ingredients identified as steroids. The agency recommended that anyone taking dietary supplements containing steroids should immediately see a doctor if they showed signs of liver problems.

A number of Hydroxycut lawsuits have been filed throughout the country against the maker of that supplement, Iovate Health Sciences. In October, all federal lawsuits were consolidated as part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL) for pretrial proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. All of the cases in the Hydroxycut litigation involve allegations that Iovate Health Sciences failed to adequately research their weight-loss products or warn about potential side effects prior to issuing the Hydroxycut recall.

Got it when it first hit the gym, the "Next Big Sup". Wasn't a lot of info out on it at the time, but I knew to take Milk Thistle, and PCT, etc. Now my lack of information did play a role, I admit that however. ER visit number 1: Critical Cardiac Enzyme levels caused the DR. to admit me for 4 days. 3.5 weeks Dr. made me stop the cycle. Week 6 eyes turned yellow, week 7 skin followed. Body began to break down muscle tissue, weight loss of about 5lbs a week. After endoscopy, reason for the Jaundice could not be found. 1.5 months in, another endoscopy showed all bile ducts open, no blockage found...2 hours after scope rushed to ER with acute pancreatitis, levels around 6000. Liquid diet for 3 days, no fat diet for 2 months. Weight gained from M-Drol was 23lbs to 215. Two months later I was at 173lbs. Like I said, I take responsibility for the damage I caused to my body. I gave my Dr. the remaining bottle of M-Drol and he did a clinical study on it and came back with a book. There is no safe way to take M-Drol because of the bi-product it releases when your body breaks it down. It will be filtered through your kidneys and liver. Expect damage to take place, it’s just a matter of to what extent.

  • EdwinFebruary 10, 2011 at 12:45 am

    I just had blood work done. I did 2 week cycle of pplex and two weeks later 2 week cycle of mdrol. Used cycle and pct assist through. Bloodwork shows I have a weakened lkidneys and inflamed liver. It started out as headaches but Dr. insisted on tests. Going back tomorrow to see what I need to do. I didn't overuse this stuff and did my research. I guess it doesn't agree with everyone's body.

  • Matt10January 27, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I took both supplements on and off for about 2 years. I did exactly what the directions and my Doctor said and nothing has happened to my liver. I am a pro bodybuilder and get regular tests done. Either they already had liver problems or they decided it was a good idea to now do as the bottle said. Futhermore, they are to be blame for their actions and neglect.

Back too the subject of mdrol my mate got boils on his back but he was spot prone anyway. Messing with your hormones isnt something to just do, it needs research, prep etc. Anything methylated do not drink on, do not stack with other methylated prods such as stacking hdrol with mdrol, any support is better than no support. If it goes wrong be responsible for your own actions! nobody forced you to take it. Truth is you dont know what itll do til you take it so stfu complaining

People who got hurt rushed into things without research, proper support and most importantly..not listening to their bodies! Maybe our stupid, sell serving government needs to get off there fat Mcdonalds filled asses and possibly make another section of OTC supplements that require age verification, proof of knowledge of product, etc instead of just OTC or Pharmaceutical! It will never happen though because between money hungry ambulance chasing lawyers and Congress gettin fat kick backs from pharmaceutical giants to keep all effective drugs/supplements in the pharmacy, we're doomed. It looks like we ALL will continue to suffer from those who got hurt to the ones who love Mdrol and such products!! RE LEGALIZE ANDRO!!!

So if someone takes some cold medicine, doesn't follow directions. Overdoses, and ends up in the hospital all jacked up, what, will they sue the manufacturer? For their own negligence? The only reason the product stopped selling was because they were legally advised to I'm sure. Also to show they are taking at least some steps forward to investigate the matter. Damn rejects always screw it up for the people who do this stuff properly. Take ephedra for example. The FDA has the athourity to issue an immediate ban, yet they allow a 60day sell off period of Ephedra products...must not be that dangerous? The only thing dangerous about it is for the retards who abuse it and don't cycle it. Certain mechanisms in your body make it feel as though the original dose is not working. SO they increase the dosage for the same effect. Though they are also increasing the toxicity. Its was even more dangerous to all prescription weight loss drugs, because it worked better than all of them. Which is bad for business, for prescription drug manufacturers. ANYWAY....as I have said, the ones who ended up with problems, from the supplement in question, they did not take it properly, or do proper research...Plain and simple...

    I'm positive this is a result of rushing into a cycle without studying it first, had they studied M-drol and P-plex and the high side affects affiliated with them and took the right precaution such as support supplements for the liver and not just a simple milk thistle product to protect the liver they wouldn't have these problems.

I made huge gains in less than 2 weeks. i only stayed on for 4 weeks and took no more than 20 ml per day. i ate good, and drank lots of water. I also took a good pct. I have done 2 seperate cycles. each were a year apart. I thought it was a very good product. I will say however that i do know a few who have had problems with this supplement. One of which was hospitalized, but i do know that these people I knew abused it. They drink frequently, even excessivly on weekends, and took a larger dosage than was recomended and cycled longer than 4 wks. So , I dont know. Some people may not have strong livers and some people simply dont know what they are doing. Most of the time when these supllements are banned or someone gets injured is because of not following the directions(hydroxycut) is a prime example. I took hydroxycut years ago, and it was great. It worked like a charm, if you follow the directions and warning. these products say NOT to take if you ave certain conditions. Most of the time ., sad to say, its usually the young guys9 teeans, early 20's) that dont head these warnings, take wrong dosages, etc, and things go bad. Im not saying m-drol isnt dangerous, but so are a lot of things. Tylonol can easily kill somebody. I just know this product worked very well for me, and i had no side effects as far as i know. I would never wish for anyone to get hurt and wouldnt ven go as far as calling these guys names. i simply dont know the fact(dosages, and generl habits ) of these guys filing the suit. i would just guess from my own experience and from the people i know who have taken and got injured, my guess would be, they did something wrong or they have a pre existing condition. The one question i would have is( Are these two guys friends? Did they work out together?) If they are, they probably each took the product the same way, which would shed light on the situation.

The amount of alcohol he drank would have killed a normal liver in half the time. some ppl can drink like a fish for years and have a healthy liver and some can have severe problems with very little. you need to know your body.also the guys with liver problems who took this stuff all are in an age group that is common for people to drink and do other drugs and not worry about drinking water and the alcohol only dehydrates them further. m drol has a duretic effect so its very important to drink water. experienced users are well aware the risk and know the importance to refrain from alcohol. they are doing everything they can to build muscle witch includes not drinking alcohol at all staying completely hydrated eating well blanced nutrition getting there vitamins and getting enough sleep. changing your sleep patterns alot can cause liver problems taking tylenol can cause liver problems. so my guess is these guys did everything wrong. drank alcohol, didnt drink enough water. didnt eat good. didnt get there vitamins, didnt take liver support , took tylenol, didnt have a set sleep pattern, did not space the doses out good, overdosed them before giving the lower dose a chance, taking longer than 3 weeks, not preloading with liver support, have seen a few of these guy on tv and based on age and looks most would be able to assume that they are not the typical well experienced gym rat. and if that is not the case then they are one of the few ppl whos liver would die in a month from what some alcoholics can do for years. many blood work results show that any elevated enzyme numbers are quicly reduced in most people to base line,

Yes, steroids --oral or injectable-- have potential risks. Those same risks are easily controlled and/or eliminated with careful monitoring and diligent precautionary measures. Were the individuals in question using support products? Did they get bi-weekly bloodwork? Did they even monitor their BP? Chances are all three are answered with a 'no'. As asked before, what dosages were used and for how long? I've seen claims by a heart attack victim that the products he was using were tainted, when in reality he was stackin M-Drol w/ Epistane at double and triple dosages, respectively. Bye bye left ventricle. Barring some underlying condition, at normal dosing protocol M-Drol should NOT cause acute liver failure. Stacking it with P-Plex or any c17-alkylated oral, and possibly alcohol and Tylenol --who knows? Would the plaintiffs fess up to that if they had? Would they even have known it was a big 'no no'? If they didn't, whose responsibility was it to inform them?-- significantly increases the possibility.

Either they just wanted to get big as fast as they can without caring for side effects or just wanted to sue a company because their lazy and they dont want to work. Either way, now we cant buy these great products anymore. Luckily I stacked up on 3 bottles last month :)

    Apperantly you have not done your research very good either. You take the milk thistle before, during, and after the cycle so it lessons liver affects on the liver.

Did any of the people hurt do that? Also if you start feeling complications why would you keep taking it? You have to listen to your body. This is just more people not taking responsibility for them selves and blaming other people for thier stupidity.

He has always been extremely healthy. Two of his liver enzyme levels are also highly elevated, and he has been suffering from jaundice for about 6 weeks. He has been to different Dr.'s, a Specialist, and had multiple test procedures, a liver biopsy and lab work done. The Dr. said its a possibility he may be experiencing liver failure. I can't say if these guys abused it, however, I know my fiance didn't. So for everyone with doubts, I hope this is a helpful warning.

Maybe it is exposing a weak liver not causing it. Steroids are not evil, we use them to keep people alive but if you use them for enhancement you are going to die? My personal gains from M-drol: start weight 165 in June, 208 today. Bench 125 in June, 315 today. You tell me.

    The previous guy is clearly a moron. I took as prescribed actually took less and it stilled made my liver sick. So maybe Chris should learn a little more about the subject he is speaking on. It irritates me when unsympathetic idiots probably muscle heads are clueless about what is right and wrong.

    i wonder if they even ran support supplements. drank enough water. it sounds to me someone wasnt doing their research before they started using it. and what gta61 said how long were they using it and how much? its a great producted that ive used, with the right knowledge of how to use it its a great product.

I expect there will be scores of 'liver damage' cases brought against the mfrs, suppliers etc etc of these type products.
