ISSUE: Regeneca, Inc. notifed the public of a nationwide recall of RegenArouse, Lot Number 130100. FDA lab analysis confirmed the presence of Tadalafil, an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making this product unapproved new drug.
Use of this product may pose a threat to consumers because it may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. FDA has advised that consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance.
