Vapers Beware: E-Liquids Could Contain Erectile Dysfunction Drugs

Jan 08, 2019

E-Liquids Could Contain Erectile Dysfunction DrugsThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned vapers (consumers of e-cigarettes) to avoid two particular e-liquids - E-Cialis HelloCig E-Liquid and E-Rimonabant HelloCig E-Liquid – because they contain undeclared erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs.

An e-liquid (sometimes called e-juice) is a substance used for vaping (smoking e-cigarettes). Usually, e-liquids contain nicotine, flavoring, and other chemicals.

In a laboratory analysis, the FDA found sildenafil and tadalafil in the E-Cialis HelloCig E-Liquid product and sildenafil in E-Rimonabant HelloCig E-Liquid. Both products are sold by HelloCig Electronic Technology Co., Ltd.

Sildenafil and tadalafil are the active ingredients in Viagra and Cialis, respectively. These drugs are phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors and work by increasing blood flow to the penis to produce a firm erection. These medications are available only by prescription and should be used under a doctor’s care.
