Reason for warning:
The MHRA has received advice from AGES PharmMed in Austria and the Danish Medicines Agency, warning that these unlicensed products have been tested and found to contain Tadalafil and/or Sildenafil, the Prescription Only Medicines used in the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The active ingredient is not listed on the product label.
Possible side effects:
Tadalafil is the active ingredient in a Prescription Only Medicine Cialis, and should only be used when prescribed by a doctor. Uncontrolled consumption of Tadalafil is dangerous and could potentially cause serious adverse reactions such as heart attack, stroke and severe hypotension.
Sildenafil can cause potentially life-threatening high blood pressure. Individuals with heart problems are at increased risk of cardiovascular side-effects such as heart attack, stroke, chest pain and abnormal heart beat. Other side effects include headache, indigestion, dizziness and abnormal vision.
It is unclear whether these products are available in retail outlets but could be available on the internet.
