The United States: Public Notification: Lipro Dietary Capsule contains hidden drug ingredient tadalafil
 
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Lipro Dietary Capsule, a product promoted and sold for weight loss on various websites, including www.liprodietpill.com, and possibly in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Lipro Dietary Capsule contains tadalafil. Tadalafil is the active ingredient in the FDA-approved prescription drug Cialis, used to treat erectile dysfunction. This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details: http://www.fda.gov/drugs/medication-health-fraud/public-notification-lipro-dietary-capsule-contains-hidden-drug-ingredient

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product. Related news was previously issued by Australia Therapeutic Goods Administration and Health Canada, and was posted on the Drug Office website on 18 Apr 2018 and 23 Nov 2018.
