Recall: Two Sexual Enhancement Supplements Containing Undeclared Drugs

On May 1, 2013, American Lifestyle issued a voluntary recall of all lots of sexual enhancement supplements Vicerex and Black Ant because they were found to contain undeclared prescription drugs.

Recalled Vicerex was sold in a blister pack (UPC 893490820087) of ten capsules and was promoted as an "all natural herbal alternative" to prescription erectile dysfunction drugs. It contains tongkat ali, horny goat weed, tribulus terrestris, maca, ginkgo biloba and Epimedium grandiflorum. Vicerex was also found through FDA laboratory analysis to contain undeclared tadalafil, the active ingredient in the FDA approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction, Cialis.

Black Ant was sold in a box (UPC 4026666142546) containing four individually wrapped capsules. It was found through FDA laboratory analysis to contain undeclared sildenafil, the active ingredient in the FDA approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction, Viagra.

Tadalafil and sildenafil can cause symptoms like headache and flushing, and can interact with medications containing nitrates such as nitroglycerine, resulting in dangerously low blood pressure.

Both supplements were distributed worldwide by American Lifestyle through online and retail sales. Consumers who have purchased these supplements should discontinue use immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any adverse side effects.

Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
