The TGA has issued a warning about a product which contains dipyrone
The Therapeutic Goods Administration has said in a statement that Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement capsules pose a serious risk to people’s health and should not be taken.
It tested a product labelled with that name and found that it contained undeclared sildenafil and tadalafil.
It also contained dipyrone, which is prohibited in Australia due to a rare life-threatening blood disorder called agranulocytosis.
Dipyrone is not found in the Poisons Standard but is a derivative of the Schedule 10 substance aminophenazone.
“The supply of Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement capsules containing sildenafil, tadalafil and dipyrone is illegal,” the TGA said.
“Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement capsules have not been assessed by the TGA for quality, safety or efficacy as required under Australian legislation, and the place of manufacture is not approved by the TGA.”
It advised the public to stop taking any Resurrection Male Sexual Enhancement capsules in their possession and to return them to their local pharmacy for safe disposal.
It also again warned the public to exercise extreme caution when purchasing medicines from unknown overseas Internet sites.
