Sexual Enhancement Supplements Contain Prescription Drugs

The FDA recently warned consumers that the following sexual enhancement supplements were found to contain undeclared sildenafil and/or tadalafil. Use the links below to read the complete warning letter for each: Sildenafil, the active ingredient in the prescription drug Viagra, and tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis, 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 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 Voluntary Reporting Program.
