A Drug Cocktail

Even more troubling is that many of the hundreds of products FDA has tested contained high doses of undeclared (or hidden) mixtures of different drug ingredients. For example, one of these tainted products included 31 times the prescription dose of tadalafil (the active ingredient in Cialis), in combination with dapoxetine, an antidepressant that is not approved by FDA.

“Some of these products have as many as six different ingredients contained in FDA-approved prescription drugs and analog of those ingredients, which are similar compounds of the drugs. We don’t know what danger this poses because these combinations have never been studied before they’re sold to unsuspecting consumers,” Coody says.

Unlike prescription and some non-prescription drugs, many dietary supplements may be legally marketed without a prior FDA evaluation of their safety and effectiveness. FDA typically investigates dietary supplement products after they are marketed, for example, as a part of routine or for-cause facility inspections, or after it receives reports associating them with adverse events. Under the law, it is the company’s responsibility to make sure that its products are safe and that the claims they make are true.
