Nationwide Recall of Stamina-Rx Dietary Supplement
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is conducting a nationwide recall of all lots of their product Stamina-Rx. This product is being recalled because it may contain an undeclared ingredient called benzamidenafil. Benzamidenafil is in the same class of medicines that include the Phosphodiesterase Type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil, that are FDA-approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). Benzamidenafil is not FDA-approved, and poses a threat to consumers because benzamidenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Stamina-Rx is sold in health food and drug stores nationwide. The product is sold in 10, 30, and 40-tablet bottles and in 2 and 6-tablet blister packs. All Stamina-Rx products are being recalled by the manufacturer. For more information, please visit: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm167139.htm
