Vialipro dietary supplement recalled
Good Health announced a voluntary recall of Vialipro, sold as a dietary supplement, after FDA lab analyses found certain batches of the product to contain undeclared sulfoaildenafil. Sulfoaildenafil is an analog of sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug indicated for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The undeclared ingredient may pose a threat to patients because the interaction of sulfoaildenafil with some prescription drugs (eg, nitroglycerin) may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, or cardiac disease often take other prescription drugs.
The following lots are being recalled: Lot# 80409, 80661, 81146, 90132, 90265, 90587, 90826, 91065, 00197, and 00347.Patients in possession of this product should stop taking it immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they experience adverse effects related to the use of this product.
