The United States: Public Notification: Fuel Up High Octane contains hidden drug ingredient hydroxythiohomosildenafil
 
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Fuel Up High Octane, a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement on various websites, including www.fueluppills.com, and possibly in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Fuel Up High Octane contains hydroxythiohomosildenafil. Hydroxythiohomosildenafil is structurally similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in the FDA-approved prescription drug Viagra, used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). This undeclared ingredient 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.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/../ucm469065.htm

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product.
