Products found to contain undeclared medicines

 
The United States: Public Notification: ZlimXter Capsules contain hidden drug ingredient sildenafil
 
The FDA is advising consumers not to purchase or use ZlimXter Capsules, a product promoted and sold for weight loss and energy on various websites and possibly in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that ZlimXter Capsules contain sildenafil. Sildenafil is 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/../ucm491221.htm

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