The United States: Xzen 1200, Xzen Gold and Xzen XPress: Public Notification - Undeclared Ingredients Sildenafil and Tadalafil
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Xzen 1200, Xzen Gold or Xzen XPress products promoted and sold for sexual enhancement on various websites and in some retail stores. FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Xzen 1200 contains tadalafil, the active ingredient in the FDA-approved prescription drug Cialis, and that Xzen Gold and Xzen XPress contain both sildenafil and tadalafil, the active ingredients in the FDA-approved prescription drugs Viagra and Cialis, respectively, which are used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). These undeclared ingredients may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. Consumers should stop using this product immediately and throw it away. Consumers who have experienced any negative side effects should consult a healthcare professional as soon as possible.
