Male Enhancement Supplement Containing Antidepressant Recalled

On September 25, 2015, TF Supplements issued a recall of two lots of the sexual enhancement supplement RHINO 7, which were found to contain the undeclared drugs desmethyl carbondenafil and dapoxetine.

Desmethyl carbondenafil is a phosphodiesterase PDE-5 inhibitor, a class of drugs used to treat 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.

Dapoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) drug, a class of drugs used to treat depression. However, dapoxetine has not been approved by the FDA. SSRI drugs are associated with serious side effects including suicidal thinking, abnormal bleeding, and seizures, and can interact with other common medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen, which can cause ventricular arrhythmia or sudden death.

Recalled RHINO 7 was distributed nationwide through internet sales on the website, and can be identified by the following:

  • One bottle containing six capules, Lot # K824B719-P
  • A hanging card containing one capsule, Lot # SU-5102617*RP

Consumers who have purchased these supplements should not use them, 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.
