Products found to contain undeclared medicines

Australia: Safety advisory: Counterfeit VigRX Plus tablets were found to contain the undeclared substance tadalafil
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested four samples of a product labelled VigRX Plus tablets and found that two of those samples contained the undeclared substance tadalafil. The two samples tested by the TGA that contained tadalafil are counterfeit versions of VigRX Plus tablets.

Tadalafil should only be used on the advice of a medical practitioner and requires a prescription by a medical practitioner. The taking of medicines containing tadalafil without the advice of a medical practitioner poses a significant and serious health risk.

Consumers should be aware there are counterfeit versions of VigRX Plus tablets available for purchase. Consumers are advised to stop taking the product and consult their healthcare practitioner if they have any concerns arising from their use of this product.

Please refer to the following website in TGA for details:
