The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a recall of ROCK-It Man Male Enhancement Capsules after finding it contains hydroxythiohomosildenafil. The FDA’s tests found that this over-the-counter “supplement” has virtually the same active ingredient (sildenafil) in it as the FDA-approved prescription impotence drug, Viagra. Therefore, the expectation is that it will have some of the same side effects.
In an earlier post, the danger was explained: Many of the prescription impotence drugs warn men who also take nitrates for heart problems about the risk of a dangerous drop in blood pressure. No such warnings exist on these “supplements.”
The recall covers capsules sold between October 2012 and April 2013.
