Texas ACTRA-Sx 500 Lawyer

September 18, 2012 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recalled Actra-Sx 500 capsules after an independent laboratory analysis confirmed the presence of Sildenafil Citrate, the active ingredient in Viagra and Revatio. The FDA is concerned that this undeclared drug could interact with other medications a person it taking, with potentially deadly side effects.

 

The affected products are dietary supplements marketed as a way to treat erectile dysfunction. They are manufactured by Body Basics, Inc. Each package is marked with Lot 008-A, contains five pills, and each pill is colored purple and gold. They have an expiration date of December 2013. The company voluntarily ceased distribution of Actra-Sx 500 in November 2011, but consumers may still possess this product.

According to the FDA:

“Use of this product may pose a threat to consumers because it may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.”

Erectile dysfunction commonly ails men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Many of these diseases are treated with medications that contain nitrates. Unfortunately, the combination of Actra-Sx 500 and a nitrate medication could cause deadly low blood pressure.

The FDA recommends cease using this product. Customers can return the product to the manufacturer for a full refund.

Symptoms of low blood pressure (also known as “hypotension”):

  • Dizziness, light-headedness
  • Fainting, loss of consciousness
  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea
  • Breathing problems
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Thirst
  • Decreased ability to concentrate
