Canada: Removal of Potentially Dangerous Products, "X-Rock", "Kaboom" and "One For Her", from sale
 
Unauthorized health products, "X-Rock", "Kaboom" and "One For Her" have been removed from sale in Canada. Health Canada's testing of these products identified undeclared prescription drugs sildenafil, and tadalafil and an undeclared substance, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, which is similar to sildenafil. Products containing sildenafil or tadalafil should never be used by individuals taking any kind of nitrate drug (e.g. nitroglycerine) as it can cause potentially life-threatening low blood pressure. Individuals with heart problems including high blood pressure, a history of heart attack, stroke, abnormal heart beat or chest pain are at higher risk of cardio-vascular side effects if they engage in sexual activity, including if they use sildenafil or tadalafil to help them achieve an erection. Other possible side-effects of using sildenafil include headache, facial flushing, indigestion, dizziness, abnormal vision and hearing loss.
