Viril-ity Power (VIP) Tablets
Audience: Consumers, healthcare professionals
[Posted 05/30/2008] International Pharmaceuticals, Ltd. and FDA notified consumers and healthcare professionals that the company is recalling all supplement products sold under the brand name of Viril-ity Power (VIP) Tablets. The product is being recalled because one lot was found to contain a potentially harmful undeclared ingredient, hydroxyhomosildenafil, an analog of sildenafil. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra, an FDA-approved drug used for erectile dysfunction. The undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as Nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to life-threatening levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take such nitrates. Consumers who have Viril-ity Power (VIP) Tablets should stop using it immediately and contact their healthcare professional if they experience any problems that may be related to taking this product.
