WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration today advised consumers to not purchase eight penis pill brands.
The new advisory warnings include the penis pill brands:
- APEXXX, which contains sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra;
- Wild Sexx capsules, which contain sildenafil and tadalafil, the active ingredients in Viagra and Cialis.
- Ultra SX capsules, which contain sildenafil;
- Paradise Suplemento Natural Ultra Plus capsules, which contain sildenafil;
- Super Dragon 6000 capsules, containing sildenafil;
- Sex-Love Secret Code capsules containing sildenafil;
- Fuel Up Plus, containing hydroxythiohomosildenafil, which is structurally similar to sildenafil; and,
- Fuel Up High Octane, which contains hydroxythiohomosildenafil.
The FDA said distributors of the brands claim that the ingredients are "all natural" but laboratory analysis confirmed the pills were found to contain the active ingredients in the FDA-approved prescription drugs Viagra and Cialis.
All of the pills were intended to be sold at brick-and-mortar retail shops and on the web, and nearly all of the shipments were intercepted at customs at various U.S. airports, said the FDA, which noted that consumers should stop using the products immediately.
So far this year, the FDA has blacklisted 34 penis pill brands.
