Three Sexual Enhancement Supplements Found to Contain Prescription Drugs
Sildenafil, the active ingredient in the prescription drug Viagra, and tadalafil, the active ingredient in the prescription drug Cialis, are typically prescribed for erectile dysfunction. These drugs can cause symptoms like headache and flushing, and can interact with medications containing nitrates such as nitroglycerine, resulting in dangerously low blood pressure.
These products are sold on various websites and in some retail stores, and may also be promoted for weight loss or bodybuilding.
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.
