A recall of RegenArouse, a "natural female intimacy enhancement" supplement, is being conducted by its maker, Regeneca, Inc., said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration today. The herbal pills actually contain, tadalafil, the drug found in Cialis and other pills used to treat erectile dysfunction in males.
Tadalafil is an FDA-approved drug for the treatment of ED, however, it interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. And because it is an unlisted ingredient in the RegenArouse herbal supplement, the FDA and Regeneca have announced the voluntary recall.
The recalled affects one lot (Lot Number: 130100) of the RegenArouse drug with an expiration date of 12/5/2013 and a UPC code of 816860010079. The packages of pink pills were sold online directly to consumers in the U.S and Puerto Rico from November 29, 2011 and February 10, 2012.
Consumers with the recalled RegenArouse pills are urged to call Regeneca's toll-free customer support line (800-690-6958) for instructions on how to return the pills for a full refund.
