ISSUE: BeaMonstar Products notified the public that it is recalling its SexVoltz, Velextra, and Amerect capsules to the retail level. Laboratory analysis conducted by the FDA on SexVoltz and Velextra has determined these products contain undeclared tadalafil. Amerect is voluntarily recalled because it has the potential to contain undeclared tadalafil. Tadalafil is an FDA-Approved drug used to treat male erectile dysfunction (ED), making the products unapproved new drugs.
This undeclared active ingredient poses a threat to consumers because tadalafil 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.
