Six Male Enhancement Supplements Found Adulterated

On July 15, 2009, the U.S. FDA announced that Obteron 1 Inc. dba Nature & Health Co. is recalling the following supplements: LibieXtreme, Y-4ever, Libimax X Liquid, Powermania Capsule, Powermania Liquid, and Herbal Disiac.

Obteron 1 was informed by representatives of the FDA that lab analyses of these products found they contain either tadalafil, an active ingredient of an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction (ED) , its analog aminotadalafil, or the analog of sidenafil, an active ingredient of another FDA-approved ED drug, making these products unapproved drugs. None of the active drug ingredients are listed on the product labels. The undeclared ingredients may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. Additionally, the product may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing.

Customers who have these products in their possession should stop using it immediately and contact their physician if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking this product.
