The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Consumer alert: FDA recalls Liviro3

    Liviro3 is a dietary supplement produced by Ebek, Inc.

    If you use it, stop now and read this. Report headaches and flushing to your doctor.

    The FDA found that a counterfeit version of this product contains tadalafil (Cialis), a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence).

    Risks are greatest in people taking prescriptions for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease because those prescriptions often contain nitrates that may interact with tadalafil and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.

    While the genuine supplement states “Manufactured by Ebek Laboratory” on the front, lower left corner of the label, the counterfeit project label reads “A brand of Natural V”.
