Eight Enhancement Supplements Found to Contain Undeclared Drugs

On October 23, 2015, the FDA warned consumers not to buy or use the following three sexual enhancement supplements because they were found to contain an undeclared sildenafil or similar drugs (some were identified during an examination of international mail shipments): 

Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra and tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis, are drugs 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.

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.
