Long Weekend Dietary Supplement
Audience: Consumers, healthcare professionals
[Posted 06/15/2007] Confidence, Inc. informed consumers and healthcare professionals of a nationwide recall of Long Weekend, a product sold as a dietary supplement through mail orders and retailers located nationwide, and in Puerto Rico, Canada, the United Kingdom, Russia, and China. The product was recalled because it contained undeclared tadalafil, an FDA approved drug used to treat male Erectile Dysfunction (ED). This poses a threat to consumers because tadalafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Long Weekend is not approved by FDA; therefore, the safety and effectiveness of this product is unknown. Consumers should discontinue use of Long Weekend and consult their healthcare professional about approved treatments for ED.
