Duro Extend Capsules Recalled For Unapproved Drug

khts_recallsIntelli Health Products, announced today that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of Duro Extend Capsules For Men. Intelli Health Products, is conducting this recall after being informed by representatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that laboratory analysis of Duro Extend Capsules For Men sample found the product to be adulterated with Sulfoaidenafil, an analogue of sildenafil which is an FDA approved drug used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction(ED), making it an unapproved new drug.

Use of this product may pose a threat to consumers because the analogue may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance.
