Sexual performance dietary supplements

Banned Sexual Performance Products

P-Boost also sold as NatuRect is a dietary supplement used for enhancing male sexual function. On November 19, 2013, the FDA asked Tendex the manufacturer of both products to recall P-Boost and NatuRect because they contain tadalafil which is the active ingredient in Cialis. Cialis is approved by the FDA for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) and carries warnings about drug interactions with nitrates and reduction of blood pressure to dangerous levels. P-Boost and NatuRect are essentially unapproved drugs with undeclared active ingredients that can harm unsuspecting consumers. They did not carry warnings about drug interactions and effect on blood pressure. 

A recall was also issued for RezzRx which contains undeclared hydroxylthiohomosildenafil and aminotadalafil and VitaliKOR Fast Acting which contains tadalafil and also vardenafil the active ingredient in Levitra. Men who do not know these supplements contain such active ingredients may combine them with nitrates and other drugs that interact with Levitra or Cialis, leading to deadly side effects.
