Duro Extend Tablets Recalled

Intelli Health Products just announced that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Duro Extend Capsules For Men, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just reported.

Intelli Health Products was informed by representatives of the FDA that a laboratory analysis of Duro Extend Capsules For Men sample found the product to be adulterated with Sulfoaidenafil, an analogue of sildenafil, an FDA approved drug used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). This makes Duro Extend Capsules for Men an unapproved new drug.

Use of this product may pose a threat to consumers because the analogue may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance. 

Duro Extend Capsules are sold nationwide and are sold as a blister pack containing one capsule per unit of use with 24-packs in a box. Lot number and expiration date appears on the seal. 

Lot Number and Expiration Dates:
