Products found to contain undeclared medicines

 
The United States: Public Notification: Ginseng Power-X contains hidden drug ingredients sildenafil and sulfoaildenafil
 
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Ginseng Power-X, a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement on various websites and in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Ginseng Power-X contains sildenafil and sulfoaildenafil. Sulfoaildenafil is structurally similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in the FDA-approved prescription drug Viagra, 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.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details: http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/ResourcesForYou/../ucm485069.htm

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