The FDA is warning consumers to not buy or use Alpha Male, a product sold for sexual enhancement. Alpha Male was confirmed to contain aminotadalafil, sulfosildenafil, sulfoaildenafil, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, dimethylsildenafil, and sildenafil.

Aminotadalafil is an analogue of tadalafil (Cialis; Eli Lilly), a prescription drug approved for erectile dysfunction. Sulfosildenafil, sulfoaildenafil, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, and dimethylsildenafil are all structurally similar to sildenafil (Viagra; Pfizer), also a prescription drug approved for erectile dysfunction.

These hidden ingredients may interact with nitrates found in prescription drugs (eg, nitroglycerin), and may lower a patient’s blood pressure to dangerous levels.

Consumers are to stop using Alpha Male immediately and throw it away.
