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

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was 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.

    FDA recalls Zencore Plus

    It turns out that this widely advertised product is not as “natural” as its manufacturer claims.

    Bodee LLC is recalling it after being informed by the FDA that it contains benzamidenafil, a PDE5 inhibitor.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise!

    Benzamidenafil is likely to have the same pharmacological properties as the other 3 PDE5 inhibitors, sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra), which are FDA-approved drugs for erectile dysfunction.

    Using Levitra as an example, here are side effects and precautions associated with taking a PDE5 inhibitor.
