Viagra Coffee, Part 2

2 postings ago, I wrote about innovation being the driving force during recessionary times, in reference to the addition of sildenafil, the active ingredient of Viagra, into coffee powder to give that extra boost.

Its now becoming more apparent that this practice is more prevalent. The US FDA recently issued this statement:

FDA MedWatch Alert

Voluntary Recall of Libipower Plus

July 14, 2009

Audience: Consumers, pharmacists.

Haloteco and FDA notified healthcare professionals and consumers of a nationwide voluntary recall of Libipower Plus. Lab analysis of Libipower Plus samples were found to contain undeclared Tadalafil, an active ingredient of FDA approved drugs for Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Tadalalafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Additionally, the product may cause side effects.

Stamina-X contains Cialis..

..just like Libipower

This has resulted in this rather common ‘food supplement’ to be withdrawn from the shelves of big chain supermarts as well as from popular websites like Amazon. By the way, tadalafil is the active ingredient of the prescription drug Cialis, used for treating sexual dysfunction.
