New Warning From FDA on Unapproved Drugs in Sex Enhancement Supplement

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers to not buy or use Extreme Diamond 3000, a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement.

An FDA laboratory analysis confirmed the undeclared presence of desmethyl carbodenafil and dapoxetine in the supplement. Desmethyl carbodenafil is structurally similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra (Pfizer), an FDA-approved drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin; this may result in lowered blood pressure to dangerous levels. Nitrates are often taken by male patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease. Dapoxetine is not FDA-approved and its safety and efficacy have not been established.
