National Video Supply announced a voluntary recall of all lots of RHINO 7 3000 Platinum Capsules after an analysis by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found these products contain two undeclared ingredients. These products are marketed as dietary supplements for sexual enhancement.

Desmethyl carbondenafil and dapoxetine were discovered in RHINO 7 3000 Platinum Capsules. Desmethyl carbondenafil is a phosphodiesterase (PDE)-5 inhibitor, which is part of a drug class used to treat male erectile dysfunction. Dapoxetine, an unapproved ingredient, is a part of the drug class known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) used to treat depression.

Taking desmethyl carbondenafil may pose a risk to some consumers because it may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (eg, nitroglycerin), which may lower blood pressure to life-threatening levels. The safety and efficacy of dapoxetine have not been established and its consumption has been shown to increase the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults. 

RHINO 7 3000 Platinum Capsules are supplied as single 1-count blister hang tab card. All lot numbers are being recalled with UPC #700729253748.
