Dear Claire
No, I have not heard of Slimirex. You can do a Search on the SA Internet to see if it is available in SA. If you obtain some then you can judge for yourself if this product contains epinephrine, synephrine or some other version of epinephrine. The negative side-effects of epinephrine include dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions, etc. In addition, the epinephrine may also interfere with the working of contraceptive pills if you should be using them, so be careful. Many of these products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence.
Best regards
