ISSUE: FDA is advising consumers not to purchase or use Herbal Vigor Quick Fix, a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement. FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Herbal Vigor Quick Fix contains tadalafil, the active ingredient in the FDA approved prescription drug Cialis, used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.
BACKGROUND: Herbal Vigor Quick Fix is promoted and sold on various websites and in some retail stores.
