FDA Warning For Montana: Popular Supplements May Be Dangerous
With Valentine's Day on the horizon, it may be a time of love and romance. For those that take herbal supplements to enhance their performance, they need to be aware of a recall of two herbal supplements that could have dangerous consequences if ingested.
Unlisted Ingredients Could Be Fatal
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration there is a voluntary recall from the company, Today The World, on two of their herbal dietary supplements. The brands "Sustain" and "Schwinnng" are being recalled and were both available on Amazon.com. According to the report from the FDA:
FDA analysis has found the products to contain undeclared Tadalafil and Nortadalafil (structurally similar to Tadalafil). Tadalafil and Nortadalafil are active drug ingredients known for treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The presence of Tadalafil and Nortadalafil in Sustain capsules and Schwinnng capsules makes them unapproved new drugs for which the safety and efficacy have not been established and, therefore subject to recall.
If a person were to ingest the capsules that include either tadalafil or nortadalafil, it could interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs. It can cause a significant drop in blood pressure that could be life threatening.
