WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in cooperation with the Natural Remedy Store, announced a voluntary recall for 500mg capsules of Active Male. The FDA found out as the result of extensive testing that the Active Male supplement contains tadalafil. Tadalafil, which the FDA approved for combatting erectile dysfunction, in combination with the ingredients present in the Active Male supplement, coupled with the lack of necessary labeling, creates an unsafe product that necessitates a recall according to an article posted on NorthcentralPA.com. An individual who unwittingly takes tadalafil could expose himself to life-threatening blood pressure drops, especially if the person is taking a medication containing nitrates, such as nitroglycerin.
Males living with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or high cholesterol frequently use nitrates to treat their medical conditions. The population that takes medication containing nitrates is highly vulnerable to a significant drop in blood pressure after taking tadalafil.
The Active Male supplement under recall by the FDA and the Natural Remedy Store is used as a dietary supplement designed to enhance sexual performance. The product may be purchased at the Natural Remedy Store located in San Antonio, Texas, and online.
The recalled product has packaging designed with a traditional Trojan helmet outlined by the Active Male name. The recalled dietary supplement has BN Nd6332.
The Natural Remedy Store is offering a refund of the purchase price for any unused product. The Natural Remedy Store says that no one has sustained any injuries because of the added ingredient. However, the company expressly stated that anyone who has an unused portion of the product should not use it any longer. The company urges people to return it to the point of purchase or the Natural Remedy Store.
The FDA urges consumers to report adverse health problems to their doctors. Additionally, all adverse reactions should be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch reporting program.
