The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a notice on December 23 regarding Nuway Distributors LLC’s voluntary recall of its APEXXX tablets. An analysis by the FDA led to the discovery of a sildenafil, a drug used for erectile dysfunction, in the drug. Nuway failed to disclose the presence of sildenafil in APEXXX tablets.
According to the FDA, sildenafil may mix with nitrates in other prescription drugs, and it may lead to a significant decrease in blood pressure which can be fatal in some cases. Consumers with high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, heart disease, or diabetes are more likely to be affected by the recalled product as the medicines used to treat these condition often contain nitrates.
The recalled product was marketed as a male sexual enhancement dietary supplement and is packaged in a single blister pack with 1 tablet. The supplements were sold from 2014 until June 2015.
Consumers should stop the use of these faulty supplements right away. The company issued a press release, and a return policy is being arranged for the recalled products.
