Products found to contain undeclared medicines

The United States: Public Notification: “Sex Plus” Contains Hidden Drug Ingredient Sildenafil, Tadalafil, Sulfosildenafil and Dimethylacetildenafil
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised consumers not to purchase or use “Sex Plus,” a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement on various websites and in some retail stores. FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that “Sex Plus” contains undeclared sildenafil, tadalafil, sulfosildenafil and dimethylacetildenafil. Sulfosildenafil and dimethylacetildenafil are structurally similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, an FDA-approved prescription drug for Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Tadalafil is the active ingredient in Cialis, also an FDA approved prescription drug for 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.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details:
