Hidden Viagra Found in O.M.G. Sexual SupplementsJuly 23, 2014 — The FDA is warning consumers that O.M.G., an “all-natural” dietary supplement marketed for sexual enhancement, actually contains generic Viagra (sildenafil).

According to a Public Notification, the product was promoted and sold on various websites, including www.sears.com and possibly retail stores.

The FDA warns:

“Consumers should stop using this product immediately and throw it away. Consumers who have experienced any negative side effects should consult a health care professional as soon as possible.”

Laboratory analysis found that O.M.G. contains sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, a prescription medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

This ingredient is not included on the label and men who use O.M.G. put themselves at risk of dangerous side effects. For example, a recent study linked Viagra to an increased risk of skin cancer (melanoma).

Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease. Men with these diseases often take medications that contain nitrates, such as nitroglycerin. The Viagra in O.M.G. can interact with nitrates and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.

It is illegal for dietary supplements to contain prescription medications, but it is not uncommon. These products are falsely marketed for “all-natural” sexual enhancement. The FDA cannot test every supplement for hidden ingredients, which is why consumers should be cautious before purchasing sexual supplements.
