Audience: Consumers, pharmacists
[Posted 04/29/2009] Nature & Health Co. and FDA notified healthcare professionals of a recall of a supplement product, Libimax. FDA analysis found the product contains tadalafil, an active ingredient of an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction. This product poses a threat to health because tadalafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. Consumers who have Libimax in their possession should stop using it immediately and contact their physician if they experienced any problem that may be related to taking this product.
