Sexual Enhancement Supplement Found To Contain Multiple Drugs

On November 21, 2013, the FDA warned consumers not to buy or use sexual enhancement supplement Alpha Male because it was found to contain multiple undeclared drugs, including aminotadalafil, sulfosildenafil, sulfoaildenafil, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, dimethylsildenafil, and sildenafil.

Aminotadalafil is an analogue of tadalafil, the active ingredient in the prescription erectile dysfunction drug Cialis. Sulfosildenafil, sulfoaildenafil, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, and dimethylsildenafil are structurally similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in the prescription erectile dysfunction drug Viagra. 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.

Alpha Male is sold on various websites and possibly in some retail stores.

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.
