Three Sexual Enhancement Supplements Found to Contain Prescription Drugs

On September 24, 2013, the FDA advised consumers not to purchase or use sexual enhancement supplements Xzen 1200, Xzen Gold and Xzen Xpress because they have been found to contain undeclared prescription drugs. FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Xzen 1200 contains tadalafil, and that Xzen Gold and Xzen Xpress contain sildenafil and tadalafil.

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.
