Nature & Health Co. dietary supplement products recalledNature & Health Co. has announced a voluntary nationwide recall of the following dietary supplement products: LibieXtreme, Y-4ever, Libimax X Liquid, Powermania Liquid and Capsule, and Herbal Disiac. FDA lab analysis found these products to contain either tadalafil, its analog aminotadalafil, or the analog of sildenafil. Tadalafil and sildenafil are active ingredients of FDA-approved drugs used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). The undeclared ingredients may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (eg, nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Additionally, the products may also cause side effects, such as headache and flushing.
Consumers who have any of these products in their possession should stop using them immediately and contact their healthcare professional if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking the product.
