The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a voluntary recall of Duro Extend Capsules for Men because of the potential risk for harmful interactions. Manufactured by Intelli Health Products in Miami, Florida, the capsules, which were marketed as dietary supplements for men, are being recalled after laboratory analysis from the FDA found the product to contain Sulfoaidenafil. Sulfoaidenafil is similar to sildenafil, an approved drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It is an unapproved drug for this particular product. Consumers can be harmed by this drug because Sulfoaidenafil can negatively interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin. This can result in blood pressure that may drop to dangerous levels. Nitrates are often taken by individuals with heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. The affected capsules are sold as a blister pack, with each unit containing 1 capsule in a 24-pack box. Consumers are advised to immediately stop using them and to immediately contact a doctor if they experience any adverse side effects, which should also be reported to the FDA’s Med Watch Program. Unused packages should be returned to the retail store where they were purchased. Harmful drug interactions can be very dangerous. When a prescription drug is not effectively tested, it may receive a dangerous drug classification. Contact a New York defective product lawyer today if you have been injured from a dangerous drug.
