Did You Know? – Med Man Recalls 2 Supplements for Men

Med Man Recalls 2 Supplements for MenMed Man Distribution recently recalled two of its dietary supplements: Up2 and Bow and Arrow libido enhancer. Men using these products should stop using them immediately.

FDA scientists determined that both products had been tainted with sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra. The ingredient was not declared, meaning that it was not noted on any product packaging.

Sildenafil is used to treat men with erectile dysfunction (ED). However, it is not safe for all men.

Men who take prescription drugs containing nitrates, such as nitroglycerin, should not take ED drugs. The interaction of nitrates and ED drugs can trigger a dangerous drop in blood pressure that can be life threatening.

Nitrates are often prescribed to people with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

The recall was voluntary. People who have questions may call the company Monday through Friday at 705-297-5321 between 9 am and 5 pm Eastern time. They may also email the company at dirtyderek669@gmail.com. Those who think the product has caused health problems should see their doctor.

Consumers may return the products for a refund.

If you’re considering taking a sex health supplement, always check with your doctor first. It can be helpful to have a complete physical exam to rule out any health conditions that could be connected to a sexual problem.
