Hidden Drugs Found in Sexual Enhancement Products

On July 17, 2017, the FDA posted public notifications after finding multiple sexual enhancement products contained hidden drug ingredients. Rhino 7 Platinum 5000 was found to contain sildenafil, and Royal Honey VIP, Kingdom Honey for Him, and Kingdom Honey for Her were found to contain tadalafil.

Sildenafil, the active ingredient in the prescription drug Viagra, tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis, and vardenafil , the active ingredient in Levitra, are 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 any of these products should not use them and should discard them, and should contact their doctor. Consumers and healthcare providers may also report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
